Once established in 2008, SOCAR Trading took over the torch and has successfully marketed close to 1 billion barrels of Azeri Light crude on a global scale.

As of now, Azeri crude is delivered through mainly 2 pipelines: the Western Route Export Pipeline (WREP) in Georgia and the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan pipeline (BTC) in Turkey.
