The terminal shipped 147 million barrels of oil in January through June, down 4.9 percent , from a year earlier, the London-based energy producer said by e-mail today.
Of the total, 130 million barrels were delivered to world markets via the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan pipeline, or BTC, and 13 million barrels through the Western Route Export Pipeline, also known as the Baku-Supsa link. Both pipelines are operated by BP. The remaining 3 million barrels were exported by rail, BP said.
The Sangachal terminal has a capacity of 1.2 million metric tons of oil and 25.5 million cubic meters of natural gas a day, according to BP.
