Azerbaijan Resumes Natural-Gas Supplies to Turkey, BP Says

June 11 (Bloomberg) -- Azerbaijan resumed the supply of natural-gas to neighboring Turkey on June 9, Tamam Bayatli, a spokeswoman for BP Plc’s office in the Azeri capital of Baku, said by phone today.

The supply was suspended on May 29 at the request of Turkey’s state-run Boru Hatlari Ile Petrol Tasima AS, or Botas, after an explosion on the Turkish section of the South Caucasus pipeline, the London-based producer said at the time. The pipeline is run by BP.

Azerbaijan exports 6.6 billion cubic meters of gas to Turkey a year from the offshore Caspian field of Shah Deniz, also operated by BP. The volumes will be increased by another 6 billion cubic meters after the second phase of the Shah Deniz project starts production in late 2017 or early 2018.
