A massive earthquake struck Turkey and Syria on Monday and halted operations at Turkey’s major oil export hub in Ceyhan. This stopped key crude oil flows from Iraq and Azerbaijan says officials.

The BTC terminal at Ceyhan that exports Azeri crude oil will be closed through Wednesday pending damage assessments.

BP Azerbaijan said a small oil leak had been found at Ceyhan, which led to operations being halted, and had been stopped.
