By Maksim Tsurkov – Trend:
More than 2.4 million tons (18.05 million barrels) of Azerbaijani oil will be shipped from the Turkish port of Ceyhan in February 2017, a source in Azerbaijan’s oil and gas market told Trend Jan. 26.
A major part of the oil – more than 1.9 million tons (14.35 million barrels) – will account for Azerbaijan’s state oil company SOCAR, which will deliver 22 cargoes.
The remaining parts will account for Chevron, Itochu, Inpex, TPAO and joint production, the source added.
Oil from Azerbaijan’s Azeri-Chirag-Gunashli block of oil and gas fields is delivered to Turkey’s Ceyhan port via Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan (BTC) pipeline.
The total length of the BТС is 1,768 kilometers, including a 443-kilometer section in Azerbaijan, a 249-kilometer section in Georgia and a 1,076-kilometer section in Turkey.
Condensate from Azerbaijan’s Shah Deniz and oil from Turkmenistan are also shipped from Turkey’s Ceyhan port.
