Business: BTC pipeline opens in Turkey

The official opening ceremony for the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline was held at the Ceyhan crude oil terminal near Turkey's southern coastal city of Adana on 13 July. The presidents of Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey, as well as government representatives from more than 30 countries, gathered for the launch of the second longest oil pipeline in the world. The long-delayed 1,700km pipeline is an alternate route for carrying Caspian oil to Western Europe, bypassing Russia.
