Speaking to journalists IOPTC’s managing director said: this volume includes 71 billion liters of crude oil and 66 billion of oil products, up by 3.7 percent when compared with a year earlier.   

He also said that over the last year, 3.8 billion liters of oil products have been delivered to the 19 power plants across the country, which is expected to rise this year.
