Confident Tread of Oil Refiners

Large-scale transformations have been carried out at the Turkmenbashi complex of oil refineries of the Türkmennebit State Concern since the first years of independence of our country.

As a result of investments in the amount of billions of US dollars, modern catalytic reforming and millisecond catalytic cracking units, installations for the production of high-octane gasolines, lubricants and polypropylene and for diesel fuel hydrotreatment and supply facilities have been built on the territory of the complex. As a result, in just a few years, the most modern complex of oil refineries appeared. Most of them have no equal not only in Central Asia, but throughout the world.

Today, this complex, which has become the leader of the national economy of our country, produces unleaded motor fuels, aviation and technical kerosene, fuel for jet and diesel engines, lubricants, polypropylene, heating oil, light gas oil, petroleum electrode coke, liquefied gas, construction and road bitumen and a number of other petroleum products. The products of the complex are also important because they form the basis of the export potential of our country.

The facilities are fitted with modern equipment designed to process two million tons of fuel oil, 250,000 tons of liquefied gas and 230,000 tons of low-octane light gasoline.
It should be noted that over the years of independence, about five dozen industrial premises and buildings for cultural and community purposes have been built in this factory complex. In their construction, world-famous companies from Ireland, the Czech Republic, Japan, Iran, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Turkey, Israel, Scotland, Switzerland, the Netherlands, the Republic of Korea, the USA and Indonesia participated as contractors.

It is necessary to proudly note the projects implemented by Turkmen businessmen, which also take a worthy place in this list. Oil and petrochemicals produced at these enterprises are competitive in world markets today.

The fact that, under the leadership of the President of Turkmenistan, this enterprise, which plays an important role in the growth of the economic power of the Turkmen state and the regular improvement of the living standards of the people, is confidently striding to new heights of development makes each of us feel immense pride. This is evidenced by the production indicators achieved by the complex in the year 2022 “The Era of the People with Arkadag”, namely, 4 million 483.5 thousand tons of crude oil were processed in eleven months of the year, which is 108.9% of the planned target.
