Transporting oil through Georgia and on to world markets.
This 830km pipeline transports oil from the Chirag field in the Caspian Sea via the Sangachal terminal in Azerbaijan to the Supsa terminal in western Georgia with just under half of the pipeline located in Georgia. WREP, which became fully operational in 1999, is capable of transporting up to 100,000 barrels of oil a day.
Environment and Social
In assessing possible new developments we routinely carry out Environmental and Social Impacts Assessments (ESIAs) at the start of a project. The Western Route Export Pipeline was constructed to enable export of oil from the ACG field in the Azerbaijan sector of the Caspian Sea. The pipeline entered operation following the completion of an Environmental Impact Assessment in 1997. The overall objective of the EIA process is to ensure that any potential adverse environmental or social impacts arising from pipeline operation are identified, and where possible eliminated or minimised through early recognition of, and response to, these issues.
BP is responsible for managing and carrying out development and production activities on behalf of the various project partnerships within agreed management frameworks.
