Azerbaijan's January-March Oil Exports Via BTC Pipeline Rise 9%

(Reuters) — Azerbaijan's oil exports through the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan (BTC) pipeline via Georgia and Turkey were up by 9.0% year-on-year in the first three months of this year at 7.244 million tonnes, the State Statistics Committee said on Monday.

The BTC is used to export oil from the Azeri, Chirag and Guneshli oilfields operated by BP.

Azerbaijan's total oil exports in January-March 2023 were 9.5 million tonnes, of which 76.3% flowed through the BTC.

The volume of transit oil from other countries such as Kazakhstan through the BTC decreased to 1.02 million tonnes in Jan-March 2023, from 1.2 million tonnes a year earlier.
