SOCAR plans to export up to 2.5 mm tons of oil through Russia in 2010
The State Oil Company of Azerbaijan (SOCAR) has a possibility to satisfy Russia's inquiry for increase of Azeri oil
export via Baku-Novorossiysk pipeline.
SOCAR president Rovnag Abdullayev says that in 2010 it is planned to export up to 2.5 mm tons of oil via Baku-Novorossiysk pipeline.
"We have not a possibility for larger volume of supplies. Out of overall production we will direct 6.2 mm tons of oil
for refining and export the remaining via Baku-Novorossiysk."
"We will be able to meet Russia's inquiry only on the condition of oil production increase by our company," Abdullayev said.
