The BTC construction works are at the final stage. "The oil will flow in Ceyhan late 2005," promise BTC executives.

"At present, the fulfillment of the Baku –Tbilisi-Ceyhan  (BTC) main export oil pipeline continues smoothly. We are currently in the process of completion of testing to ensure the integrity and security of each section of the pipeline," informs press service of BP-Azerbaijan company, an operator of the BTC Company.

Officials of the company state that a work at the BTC construction is in the final stage. “We hope to conclude the work here by the late 2005, even though it seems more and more difficult,”  states BP.
