In the early 1900s, the Nobel brothers of Sweden were among those who made fortunes exporting oil that had been piped from Baku in Azerbaijan through Georgia to the Black Sea port of Batumi for onward distribution to European markets. Investments in infrastructure by the oil barons helped Batumi to develop rapidly and by the late 19th century it was the chief Russian oil port in the Black Sea and a major refinery of crude oil.
