Azeri Oil Exports Down 2.5% in 1H to 16.6M Tons


BAKU, July 16 (Reuters) – Azerbaijan's oil exports fell 2.5 percent in the first half of 2015 compared with a year earlier, driven by a decline in oil production, a source at the State Customs Committee said on Thursday.

Azerbaijan exported 16.6 million tonnes of oil in the first six months of this year, down from 17.02 million in the same period of 2014, the source, who declined to be identified, told Reuters.
