Transit of Azerbaijani oil through Russia in September 2018 amounted to almost 170,000 tons, remaining unchanged compared to the same month of 2017, the Central Dispatching Department of Fuel and Energy Sector of the Russian Ministry of Energy stated in a summary published on Oct. 2.

In January-September 2018, some 968,200 tons of oil was transported through the Russian territory, which is 16.4 percent or 190,000 barrels less compared to the same period of 2017.

SOCAR delivers the oil produced at its own fields, as well as the oil from joint ventures and companies working at Azerbaijan’s onshore fields, to Novorossiysk. The oil is delivered to the port via the Baku-Novorossiysk pipeline operated by SOCAR.

SOCAR exported 1.5 million tons of oil via the Baku-Novorossiysk pipeline in 2017.
