BAKU, June 11 (Itar-Tass) — Azerbaijan has resumed fully gas supplies to Turkey, which were terminated in May.
“Gas supplies to Turkey via the Baku-Tbilisi-Erzurum pipeline are resumed fully, and the pipeline is working in a normal mode now,” BP-Azerbaijan reported on Monday.
The export of gas to Turkey was terminated on May 30 at the request of Turkey’s Botash Company following an explosion at the Turkish part of the pipeline, which crosses the Kars province.
BP-Azerbaijan reports about 12 million cubic metres of gas a day transported via the Baku-Tbilisi-Erzurum pipeline, which is exactly the amount pumped before the accident. The pipeline is used for transportation of gas produced at the Shah Denis field offshore the Caspian Sea. BP-Azerbaijan is the operator of the field, where the deposits are 1.2 trillion cubic metres of natural gas.
