In the third quarter of 2017, oil and gas from ACG and Shah Deniz continued to flow via subsea pipelines to the Sangachal Terminal.
According to BP-Azerbaijan, the daily capacity of the Terminal’s processing systems is currently 1.2 million barrels of crude oil and about 29.5 million standard cubic metres of Shah Deniz gas, while overall processing and export capacity for gas, including ACG associated gas is about 49.3 million standard cubic metres per day.
During the first three quarters of the year, the Sangachal terminal exported around 211 million barrels of oil, including third party volumes. Of this, more than 189 million barrels were exported through Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan (BTC), 20 million barrels through the Western Route Export Pipeline (WREP), and about 1.8 million barrels via a separate condensate export line.
Gas is exported via the South Caucasus Pipeline (SCP) and via SOCAR gas pipelines connecting the Terminal’s gas processing facilities with Azerigas’s national grid system.
On average, about 27 million standard cubic metres (more than 949 million standard cubic feet) of Shah Deniz gas was exported from the Terminal daily during the first three quarters of 2017.
