BP to Shut Baku-Supsa Pipe for Monthlong Maintenance on May 15
The shutdown of the Baku-Supsa link, which will take about a month, won’t affect production at the Azeri-Chirag-Guneshli, also known as ACG, or the Shah Deniz gas fields, Bayatli said by phone from today from Baku, Azerbaijan’s capital. Both projects are operated by BP.
Crude exports will continue as normal via the Baku-Tbilisi- Ceyhan pipeline, or BTC, Bayatli said.
Azerbaijan, the third largest-oil producer in the former Soviet Union after Russia and Kazakhstan, exported 6.4 million metric tons of oil in the first quarter, down 7.3 percent from a year earlier, the State Statistics Committee said on April 23. Natural-gas exports grew 2.7 percent to 1.34 billion cubic meters, it said.
