SOCAR has suspended oil transportation through the Baku-Novorossiysk pipeline, Deputy Head of Public Relations and Events' Organization Department of SOCAR Ibrahim Ahmadov told ONA.
According to him, suspension of transportation of oil via the mentioned pipeline bears a technical character.
"This year, we haven’t used this pipeline (Baku-Novorossiysk – editor’s note) for the purpose of transportation. We can use several pipelines for transportation. We can redirect the oil volumes from one direction to another", I. Ahmadov said.
He also noted that there is yet no approved final transportation plan (in terms of volume and date – editor’s note) regarding the Northern oil pipeline for this year: "This year oil can be procured by means of Baku-Novorossiysk pipeline. As I said before this option is not excluded. However there is still no plan in terms of time and volume".
