01.11.2021 By Ricardo Perez - NEWS

January 11, 2021 [Tank News International] – A total of 3.5 billion barrels of crude oil had been shipped to the global markets as of the end of 2020 from the marine terminal in the Ceyhan district of Adana province in southern Turkey, the last stop of the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan (BTC) pipeline, according to information provided by Turkey’s Petroleum Pipeline Corporation (BOTAŞ).

 
The pipeline, inaugurated in July 2006 and dubbed the “energy project of the century,” carries Azerbaijani oil from the Caspian Sea, in addition to volumes from other countries in the region like Russia and Kazakhstan.

A total of 4,659 tankers have operated at the Haydar Aliyev Marine Terminal during the pipeline’s nearly 15 years of operation.

The Turkish section of the 1,076-kilometre-long (669-mile-long) pipeline is operated by BOTAŞ International (BIL). In 2019, 233.1 million barrels of crude oil were shipped from the terminal. In 2020, that figure was 278.2 million barrels.

Last year, the company shipped the most barrels in April despite the worldwide lockdowns that decreased the energy needs, reporting 21.3 million barrels, while November was the lowest month with 15.3 million barrels
