During the reported period, SOCAR transported 413,660 tons of oil via the Baku-Novorossiysk pipeline.
Moreover, in May oil transportation via this pipeline amounted to 159,890 tons.
Earlier, the company’s Deputy Head of Public Relations Ibrahim Ahmadov noted that it is planned to transport 330,000 tons of oil via the Baku-Novorossiysk pipeline in the 2nd quarter of 2021.
It should be noted that no crude oil was transported via this pipeline from Azerbaijan in January, as all SOCAR volumes were transported via the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan pipeline that passes through Turkey.
The company resumed the oil exports via the Baku-Novorossiysk pipeline on February 15.
The maximum capacity of the pipeline is 105,000 barrels per day.
The pipeline has 3 pump stations:
The diameter of the pipeline is 530 mm, and the length of the pipeline is 1,330 km, out of which 231 km is the Azerbaijani section.
In 2020, SOCAR reduced its exports via this route by 30% to around 613,000 tons of oil.
