Managing the commercial operations of the BTC pipeline running from Baku in Azerbaijan through to Ceyhan in Turkey is a complex business, and the EnergySys platform was judged to be the only viable option for the company.
When operating at full capacity, this pipeline handles 1 million barrels per day, and is 1,768 kilometres long (around 1,100 miles) to deliver the output from the Azeri-Chirag-Guneshli oil field in the Caspian Sea to the Mediterranean.
This crude transportation system handles delivery for multiple parties, so the system must support nomination of capacity, enforcement of booking rules, short-term and long-term forecasting, tank management, scheduling of liftings, value-based allocation, and several other business processes.
