On the evening of August 24, 2015 about 20 armed militants produced a simultaneous explosion from 2 sides of the main gas pipeline Baku-Tbilisi-Erzurum (BTE).
In August 24th, 2015 the Governor of the southeastern Turkish province of Kars Mr. Özdemir confirmed this again.
The explosion occurred at the main pipeline site again passing through the Yabasan village in the Sarikamis district in the province of Kars.
Mr. Özdemir again blamed Kurdistan Workers' Party (KWP) for the attack.
An explosion took place at a site of the Baku-Tbilisi-Erzurum gas pipeline located in the east of Turkey.
The Governor of the Kars province, G. Ozdemir, said that the investigation of the accident has been initiated. Measures necessary for the elimination of the consequences of the explosion have been taken.
Currently gas supply by the pipeline is shut down.
Fire followed the explosion at the gas pipeline.
On July 29th the explosion at the Kirkuk-Ceyhan oil pipeline took place. Local Government accused the military men of the Working Party of Kurdistan that is banned in the country.
The scandal with the Baku-Supsa oil pipeline is explained in different ways, political and economic reasons. This is primarily the confirmation of a long-term energy strategy of Azerbaijan as the situation with the oil pipeline is settled by the ideas being present in the energy strategy of Azerbaijan decades ago.
The scandal with the “movement of borders” of the breakaway regions in Georgia has political grounds. Tbilisi gets the maximum dividends from these actions which show the fact of occupation of its territories by the movement of borders and problems with large international oil transportation project. This is the reason of absence of any military actions from the part of Georgia.
Despite of this situation the issue of oil export by this pipeline is not crucial for Azerbaijan. Why?
The volume of oil export by the route oil pipelines of Azerbaijan made up 23.4 mln tons in H1 2015.
The stake of the main export pipeline BTC is 76.3% of the pumped volumes.
In H1 2015, 17.9 mln tons of oil were pumped by this pipeline from Baku. In H1 2015, 3.3 mln tons of Turkmen oil were pumped by this pipeline.
inH1 2015, 11.4 bln cubic m of gas were pumped by the route gas pipelines. The stake of the Baku-Tbilisi-Erzurum pipeline was 31.8% of the transported gas or 3.6 bln cubic m.
