BP said on Monday it would shut down its East Azeri oil platform on Nov. 7 for 12 days for planned maintenance.

Production from the other ACG platforms (Central Azeri, West Azeri, Deep Water Gunashli, Chirag and West Chirag), as well as export operations via the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan (BTC) and the Western Route Export Pipeline (WREP) will continue as normal.
The Sangachal Terminal will continue normal operations. Loadings at Ceyhan and Supsa ports will also continue in accordance with the lifting schedule.
