Western Route Export Pipeline

(Baku-Supsa)

 

qibk

The Western Route Export Pipeline (WREP) transports crude oil from offshore oil fields in the Azerbaijani section of Caspian Sea to the world markets through Georgia. The crude oil was shipped via tankers, which were loaded at the Supsa terminal in Georgia, through the Bosporus to European markets.

The pipeline begins at the Sangachal terminal and travels through Azerbaijan and Georgia to the Supsa terminal on the Georgian coast. The length of this pipeline is 833 km.

On 8 March 1996, President of Azerbaijan Heydar Aliyev and President of Georgia Eduard Shevardnadze agreed on the establishment of Baku–Supsa pipeline. The pipeline with a diameter of 530 mm was constructed in 1997-1998. It was planned to transport the first Azeri oil from Azeri, Chirag and Guneshli fields by the Baku-Supsa oil pipeline. The first Azeri oil started to be transported by the Baku-Supsa pipeline on April 17, 1999. The Western Route Export Pipeline has six pumping stations (3 in Azerbaijan, 3 in Georgia), one pigging station (in Azerbaijan), and two pressure reduction stations (in Georgia). It has the four storage tanks at the Supsa terminal. Total capacity of storage tanks was 1.000000 barrels. The major advantage of the pipeline was the transportation of net “Azeri light” oil to the global markets. Moreover, another advantage of pipeline was the lower prices of the transportation of oil to Supsa in comparison with Novorossiysk.
