Baku-Ceyhan Campaign

Companies: Amerada Hess | BP

The Baku-Ceyhan Campaign, an international coalition of groups, is working to raise public awareness of the social problems, human rights abuses and environmental damage that is being caused by the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline, which runs through Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey. BTC Pipeline Company, a conglomeration of companies led and operated by BP, is the entity responsible for planning and constructing the pipeline. The Baku-Ceyhan Campaign criticizes the project for displacing residents, supporting oppressive regimes, and for endangering people and the environment by building in areas with frequent seismic activity.
