Transport of Turkmenistan crude via the main export pipeline, Baku-Tblisi-Ceyhan, began in July this year, BP-Azerbaijan reported according to Novosti-Azerbaijan.
The volume being pumped so far is small. Turkmenistan oil began being pumped to the Ceyhan port along the Baku-Tblisi-Ceyhan pipeline after a new transport agreement was signed in July.
Currently, the pipeline is moving crude from the Azeri-Chirag-Gunsheli field and condensate from the Shah-Deniz field. An agreement has also been inked to deliver crude from Tengiz in Kazakshtan.
In the first six months of the year, the pipeline delivered 18 million tons of crude.
