Baku, Azerbaijan (PortSEurope) November 23, 2020 – The Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan (BTC) pipeline exported 21.4 million tons of crude oil loaded on 214 tankers at Ceyhan terminal in the first three quarters of 2020. AzerNews reported that in the same period, BTC registered operating expenditure of more than $67 million and $20 million in capital expenditure. Baku-Tbilisi Ceyhan (BTC) pipeline carries oil from the Azeri-Chirag-Deepwater Gunashli (ACG) field
and condensate from Shah Deniz across Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey. It links Sangachal terminal on the shores of the Caspian Sea to Ceyhan marine terminal on the Turkish Mediterranean coast. In addition, crude oil from Turkmenistan continues to be transported via the pipeline. Starting in October 2013, we have also resumed transportation of some volumes of Tengiz crude oil from Kazakhstan through the BTC pipeline. In the first three quarters of the year, the Sangachal terminal exported about 183 million barrels of oil and condensate. This includes about 160 million barrels through Baku-Tbilisi- Ceyhan and about 23 million barrels through the Western Route Export Pipeline. In addition, on average, about 48 million cubic meters of Shah Deniz gas was exported from the terminal daily during the three quarters of 2020. It was noted that the daily capacity of the terminal’s processing systems is currently 1.2 million barrels of crude oil and condensate, and 105 million cubic meters of gas. Copyright (C) PortSEurope.
