Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan Pipeline Demaged
Oil flow through the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan pipeline was cut Wednesday after an explosion sparked a fire in a section in eastern Turkey. The foreign news agencies released comments of Refahiye sub-governor Mehmet Makas who `ruled out the possibility of a sabotage, saying that a fault in the system had been detected before the blast`. As said, the incident occurred around midnight in a pump at a section near the eastern town of Refahiye, in Erzincan province.
