BAKU, May 2 (Reuters) - Azeri oil exports through the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan (BTC) pipeline via Georgia and Turkey declined 11.2 percent year-on-year in January-April to 8.72 million tonnes, state energy company SOCAR said on Tuesday.
Oil exports through the BTC in 2016 totalled 28.86 million tonnes, up 1.3 percent.
Azerbaijan exports oil via the pipeline from the Azeri, Chirag and Guneshli (ACG) oil fields operated by BP.
It also exports oil via Russia, through the Baku-Novorossiisk pipeline and via Georgia by rail and through the Baku-Supsa pipeline.
Oil from Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan is also exported through the BTC. (Reporting by Nailia Bagirova; Writing by Margarita Antidze; Editing by Mark Potter)
