Dec 02 2021


The Western Route Export Pipeline (Baku-Supsa) operated by bp has loaded the 1000th tanker at the Supsa terminal on the Black Sea.

650,000 barrels of crude oil from the Azeri-Chirag-Gunashli (ACG) field in the Caspian safely travelled all the way from the Sangachal terminal near Baku across Azerbaijan and Georgia and onto the Stamos, the 1000th tanker that sailed the cargo to Italy.

 

“Baku-Supsa is an important part of the early oil project of bp and its coventurers in ACG and the first proof of our safe and reliable operations in Georgia and the region. The lifting of the 1000th tanker from the Supsa terminal is a remarkable milestone we celebrate within bp’s 25 year anniversary in Georgia this year," says Aytan Hajiyeva, bp Georgia head of country.

 

Baku-Supsa has transported more than 700 million barrels of oil since it became operational in 1999. The current export rate via Baku-Supsa is about 100,000 barrels per day.

 

"We are proud of the exceptional performance Baku-Supsa has demonstrated for more than two decades it has been operational and since it loaded the first tanker in 1999", says Eldar Gaziyev, Area operations manager for bp’s Azerbaijan-Georgia-Turkey export pipelines.

 

ACG participating interests are: bp (30.37%), SOCAR (25.0%), MOL (9.57%), INPEX (9.31%), Equinor (7.27%), ExxonMobil (6.79%), TPAO (5.73%), ITOCHU (3.65%), ONGC Videsh Limited (OVL) (2.31%).
