22 July 2005 [09:07] - TODAY.AZ
If Georgia refuses to purchase Azerbaijani gasoline, the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan (SOCAR) can find other potential markets from 2006.
There is high demand for petrol in Iran, the SOCAR told Trend. “Besides, we can sell gasoline through the Georgian port Batumi in accordance with the contract with foreign companies,” the SOCAR said.

Georgian State Company Saknavtobtransi, former Gruzneftetrans, notified the SOCAR of the Georgian government’s resolution on transference to new oil standards since 1 January 2006. The benzol content in the petrol sold to Georgia is intended to be less than 1%, the aromatic compounds – less than 35%, while the benzol content in the Azerbaijani petrol comprises 3-4%, the aromatic compounds – 37-42%.

“The company holds opportunity to export the petrol to Ukraine, African countries,” the SOCAR underlined.
