Kazakhstan Resumes Oil Transportation through Azerbaijan
Transportation of Kazakh oil through Azerbaijan has resumed. The Energy Ministry of Kazakhstan reported this in response to a request by Kazinform.
According to the department, only for the current period of 2017, 90 thousand tons of Kazakhstan oil was exported via the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline.
The Energy Ministry also commented on the privatization of the Aktau port. “The Energy Ministry of the Republic of Kazakhstan believes the privatization of the Aktau port will not affect the prospects for the transportation of Kazakh oil through Azerbaijan,” the ministry said.
It should be reminded that until 2015 Kazakhstan transported its oil both via the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan pipeline and by rail from Baku to the Black Sea ports of Georgia.
