Our country has about 10 percent of the world’s proven oil resources, which undoubtedly causes a feeling of immense pride in every Turkmen citizen. The use of this incalculable wealth of the Turkmen land in the interests of our people is one of the priorities of the state policy of the President of Turkmenistan. This is vividly evidenced by the great work carried out at the Turkmenbashi complex of oil refineries of the Türkmennebit State Concern, which is the flagship of the fuel and energy sector of the national economy.
It is noteworthy that on June 5, 2023, which is held under the motto “Happy Youth with Arkadag Serdar”, it will be 80 years since the oil refinery in Turkmenbashi began supplying its first marketable products to consumers. Thanks to impressive state investments, factories for the production of various types of commercial products from crude oil and modern facilities of supply structures were put into operation there.
The high economic might of the Turkmen state is also evidenced by about fifty industrial facilities and buildings for cultural and community purposes constructed during the years of independence of our country on the territory of the Turkmen complex of oil refineries. World-famous companies from Japan, Iran, Germany, Great Britain, France, Turkiye, Ireland, Israel, the Czech Republic, Switzerland, the Netherlands, the Republic of Korea, the United States and Indonesia participated as contractors in their implementation ... Projects implemented by Turkmen businessmen also occupy a worthy place in this list.
Currently, the TCOR produces unleaded motor fuels, aviation and technical kerosene, jet and diesel fuel, fuel oil, motor oil, polypropylene, heating oil, light gas oil, petroleum electrode coke, liquefied gas, construction and road bitumen and a number of other petroleum products, which constitute a significant part of the export potential of the Turkmen state. The complex also continues the construction of new and modern facilities. Capacities built in accordance with international quality standards contribute to a significant increase in the production of additional petroleum products as a result of the deepening of oil refining at the TCOR.
The enterprise, which plays an important role in the growth of the economic power of the Turkmen state and the consistent improvement of the living standards of the people, is moving confidently to new heights under the wise leadership of the President of the country.
In the period from January to April this year, out of 1 million 554 thousand tons of crude oil received by the TCOR, about 1 million 526 thousand tons were processed, while the plan was fulfilled with a surplus of 53 thousand 500 tons and 48 thousand 700 tons, respectively. The total volume of various types of gasoline produced by the enterprise for the reporting period exceeded 512.5 thousand tons, and the plan was fulfilled by 108 percent. It should also be noted that the plan for the production of kerosene for this period was fulfilled by 110.1 percent, diesel fuel – by 109.7 percent, liquefied gas – by 236.4 percent and oil bitumen – more than 1.5 times.
Even more pride is caused by the fact that all types of petrochemical goods produced at the TCOR with the logo “Made in Turkmenistan” are in demand not only in the domestic market but also in the foreign one.
