October 14, 2020


Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s warning that Armenia has endangered the security of Europe’s energy supply, by attacking the Azerbaijani city of Kenja, has reiterated the importance of highlighting the most prominent power lines in the South Caucasus.

“Armenia has endangered the security of Europe’s energy supply by attacking the city of Kinga, after its attack on the Tovoz region, which is located on natural gas and oil pipelines,” Erdogan said during a telephone conversation with European Council President Michel On Monday.

The Turkish President called on the European Union to take a firm stand on the unity of Azerbaijani territory in this context.

Azerbaijan is the main power production and transmission plant in the South Caucasus, and on its territory all the power lines produced in the Azeri wells themselves or in Russia pass to Europe, and therefore the most prominent of these lines.

The Baku-Tiflis-Ceyhan pipeline, known by its acronym BTCAbout 80 percent of Azerbaijan’s oil exports, passing through Georgia and from there to the Turkish Mediterranean coast, have a capacity of 1.2 million barrels per day and transport oil 1,776 kilometers from the Azeri field in the Caspian Sea to the Mediterranean Sea.

The line is 440 km long, Georgia is 260 km long, Turkey is 1,076 km, there are 8 pumping stations along the line, the pipeline passes through Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, Tiflis, the capital of Georgia, and the Turkish port on the Mediterranean, hence the designation.

It is the second longest pipeline in the world (after the Drogba pipeline from Russia to Central Europe), and its first oil pump was from Baku on 10 May 2005, and arrived in Ceyhan on 28 May 2006.

Russian oil pipeline “Baku-Novorossiysk”

Passing through Georgia by train, known as the Northern Road Export Pipeline and the Early Northern Oil Pipeline, it runs from Sangachaal station near Baku to Novorossiysk station on Russia’s Black Sea coast.

The Azerbaijani section of the pipeline is operated by the State Oil Company of the Republic of Azerbaijan (SOCAR), and the Russian section is operated by TransOil.

Baku-Subsa pipeline

It passes from Azerbaijan to Georgia through the Black Sea and then to Europe, the second pipeline of the Western Route, with a length of 920 kilometers, and 480 km through Azerbaijan.

The pipeline was operated on 17 April 1999, and 15 million tons of oil are exported to Western countries annually, through a pipeline called Baku-Subs.

Gas fields

Azerbaijan has two gas fields: the Shah Deniz 1 field and pumps about 8 billion cubic meters of gas annually. Then Shah Deniz II is expected to pump about 16 billion cubic meters per year, of which 10 billion cubic meters is allocated to Europe and six billion to Turkey.
