This 1,768-km (1,098-mi.) pipeline project was completed in June last year to bring Caspian Sea production to Mediterranean markets, and from there to world markets. In a recent news report, a BP official explained that the pipeline’s capacity was on pace to grow to 1.6 million bopd by 2011, from its present 885,000 bopd.
