Turkmenbashi refinery plans to build a second coking unit to add 900,000 tons of coking capacity per year to its existing production, according to a Trend agency report citing the Turkmenistan government.

Turkmenbashi refinery operates a coker with a capacity of 200,000 tons of below 0.6 percent sulphur green petcoke per year. The refinery has a calcining unit as well.

No timetable for the new petcoke unit is given, but usually it takes several years to complete such a project. Normal petroleum coke output at similar capacity units are about 130,000 to 150,000 tons per year depending on fuel oil quality. Fuel oil is a feedstock for coking units.

Turkmenistan’s low-sulphur petcoke is supplied to aluminum and graphite industries in former Soviet Union countries and Central Asia.

DYM Resources supplies petroleum coke globally and took part in loading 23,000 tons of Turkmenistan petcoke in 2016. The company offers finance, logistics, and quality control services to its clients. For inquiries please contact us online or via email.
