DYM Resources has recently renewed the registration at Uzbek commodity exchange and is able to source base oils, petroleum coke, slack wax and other products from Uzbekistan’s Fergana refinery.

The Fergana refinery produces about 60 types of petroleum products and is the only base oils producer in Uzbekistan. The design capacity of the processing plant is 5.5 million tons of oil per year. Fergana Oil Refinery is the only enterprise for producing fuel and lubricants in Central Asia region except for Turkmenbashy refinery in Turkmenistan.

Fergana Refinery exports SN 100, SN 150, SN 350, and SN 500 base oils and their industrial equivalents. The main destination markets are Central Asia, the Middle East, and Turkey. Base oils product capacity is estimated in different sources from 100,000 tons per year to 400,000 tons per year.

Fergana Refinery can produce more than 900 tons of slack wax a month, as well as 100 tons of paraffin T1 and petrolatum (micro crystalline wax with high oil content). Slack wax of Uzbekistan has a light color and a low melting point, which makes it a good source for candle production. There is a high demand in slack wax among candle manufacturers especially in Poland and Lithuania.

Uzbekistan’s lubes market is estimated at 216,000 tons per year, according to Uznefteproduct. The country imports around 20,000 tons of lubes annually.

DYM Resources is buying the products at the Uzbek commodity exchange, organizing finance and quality control and delivering products at competitive prices, with high quality logistics and flexible payment terms. DYM Resources can offer base oils in rail tank cars or flexi-containers and slack wax in trucks, rail tank cars and tank containers from The Fergana Oil Refinery in Uzbekistan.
