Vitol has won a tender called by Azeri state oil company SOCAR for the fifth consignment of Azeri Light crude oil produced at Azerbaijan's Azeri-Chirag-Gunashli (ACG) fields this year.
The consignment of 80,000 tonnes will be shipped from the port of Batumi on April 30-May 1, a source at SOCAR told Interfax.
Select Energy bought this year's first three consignments and Vitol bought the third. Azeri Light was bought last year by Glencore, Arcadia, UniPetrol, Total, R-Trading, Select Energy, Tupras, and BP. Fourteen consignments were sold last year in total.
SOCAR has a 10 percent interest in the ACG project. Profitable oil is distributed among shareholders in proportion to their participation in the project.
