Baku/Azertrans Oil Terminal was constructed and put into operation in October 2000. The terminal infrastructure allows segregated transit of wide range of Crude Oils and oil products. Annual capability of the terminal is around 5 mln tons. Storage facility of the terminal consists of 15 operational shore tanks equal to 100'000 m3 storage capacity where 10 shore tanks (60'000 m3) designated for crude oil and 5 shore tanks (40'000 m3) for light products. Heating facility allows handling of high viscosity and low pour point types of crude oils.
Storage tank farm connected to the 2 railway loading installations by wide segregated pipeline system. The installations capability is simultaneous loading of 56 RTCs (4-axes count). RTCs loading is carried out by pumps installed at the terminal with loading rate capability of 1'000-1'200 m3 per hour. Technical advantage of the terminal is in possibility of either cargo discharge from the vessels into the shore tanks or straight loading into RTCs.
The terminal has 1 jetty (two sided) and 1 berth which allow it simultaneous discharge of 3 tankers with crude oil and oil products.
In addition to the above, Baku/Sangachal terminal has own internal railway system where 250 RTCs (4 axes) can be allocated at the same time and one locomotive for internal RTCs movements
