In the course of lands allocation for installation of Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan pipeline and SCP there was no problem with paying compensation for these lands, Trend reports quoting Garib Mamedov, head of State Land and Cartography Committee.

The lands are allocated along 443km long route of BTC run in Azerbaijan, covering 13 administrative areas and interests of some 5,000 citizens. Compensations are controlled by the government, Ministry of National Security and State Committee, Mamedov said.

The main problem with the population is that BTC Co, pipeline operator, initially suggested 500m wide corridor for the pipeline, then narrowed it to 100 and at last to 58m.
