In October this year, 16.759 million barrels of oil were transported through Turkey via the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan (BTC) pipeline, Qazet.az informs, citing the Turkish pipeline operator BOTAS.

This is 936,000 barrels or 5.9% more than in October last year.

In January-October 2021, the BTC pipeline pumped 164.958 million barrels of oil through Turkey, a drop of 11.007 million barrels or 6.25% from the first ten months of 2020.
