BP to Resume BTC Operations

BP said on Wednesday that testing of the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline would begin, ahead of a move to resume full operation of the route damaged by a fire earlier this month.

Toby Odone, a BP spokesman, added that the lifting schedule for Azeri crude at Ceyhan will be updated on Wednesday for tanker loadings to resume at the beginning of next week.
