The first batch of Azerbaijani oil will be supplied to the Belarusian State Concern for Oil and Chemistry (Belneftekhim Concern) by tankers on March 5-6, 2020, Ibrahim Ahmadov, deputy head of the SOCAR Public Relations and Event Management Department, told Trend.
“The first tanker cargo of Azerbaijani oil will be supplied from the Turkish Ceyhan port on March 5-6 while the second tanker cargo – from Supsa port on March 20,” Ahmadov added. “At the request of the Belarusian side, the cargo was supplied from the Turkish Ceyhan terminal earlier than the planned shipment from Supsa port.”
Azerbaijan’s state oil company SOCAR confirmed the agreement on the delivery of tanker cargo of Azerbaijani oil to Belneftekhim concern.
