BTC oil pipeline blast in Turkey halts flow-agency

ISTANBUL, Aug 6 (Reuters) - An explosion on the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline on Tuesday night in eastern Turkey prompted authorities to halt the flow of oil along the pipeline, state-run news agency Anatolian reported.

The cause of the explosion was not immediately known. The capacity of the pipeline, which terminates on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey, was expected to rise to 1.2 million barrels per day in 2008. (Reporting by Thomas Grove)
