DYM Resources speaks at Argus Petcoke Live

From the 22nd to the 24th of September DYM Resources’s Managing Director Yury Burenko is participating in a virtual conference Argus Petcoke Live as one of the speakers. The Covid-10 crisis has brought big events such as conferences online – and DYM Resources is looking forward to exploring this new way of networking.

Argus Petcoke Live is a 72-hour global virtual event that will enable global peers from the petcoke, cement, aluminum and steel industries to connect and do business bringing together end users, refiners, traders, technology and service providers. Despite being purely virtual, this event still offers everything that a traditional one would: panels and presentations with expert speakers, 1:1 meetings with delegates via video, call or chat, and group meetings. Every attendee has their own profile, so it is easier to filter and choose who to meet with.

The conference is held through a special online platform – a virtual environment created exclusively for the event. A lot of activities during the conference will be interactive, but it will also be possible to catch up on the missed sessions after.

The industry’s response to the Covid-19 crisis will be definitely the hot topic at the event. Discussions will include both region-specific and cross-regional challenges and opportunities. All networking opportunities and content will be available for participants from all time zones.

DYM’s Yury Burenko is excited to be back on track and looks forward to the conference:

“This is our first global event after such a long pause. Since maintaining contacts and socializing is very important in our industry, we have to adjust to the current circumstances and do it online. We regularly participate at Argus’s events and are always happy to share with our key partners some market insights that we get via sourcing from CIS countries showing them existing opportunities”.

DYM Resources is specializing on niche oil products and sustainable commodities supplies from the former USSR countries. One of the key trading markets is petcoke – both of anode and fuel grade.

DYM Resources restarts bulk petcoke loadings in the Black Sea

Trading company DYM Resources GmbH has restarted bulk loadings of green petroleum coke from a Russian port Yeisk in June 2020 and is planning to continue regular loadings in July and August, the company says.

Port facilities allow to load up to 4500 tons of petroleum coke.

“With an active demand from Turkey and other countries in the Black Sea region we are happy to be back in the market with fuel grade petroleum coke” – Yury Burenco, director of DYM Resources comments.

Russian petroleum coke is used by cement plants as a better alternative to steam coal and lignite due to higher calorific value.

Back in 2016 DYM Resources was one of the first companies that supplied Russian origin petcoke to the Turkish market after tax maneuver decreased export duty for petcoke. Since then the market reshaped significantly, new Delayed Coker Units (DCU) were started in the region, as well as fuel mixes changed at the consumer’s side.

DYM Resources can offer petroleum coke from every producer of the former USSR countries market, including but not limited to Rosneft, Lukoil, Gazpromneft, Tatneft, Antipink refinery and Turkmenbashy refinery.

Despite the COVID-19 lockdown, the demand for petroleum coke outpaces the production which was affected by OPEC+ deal. Russian refinery as well as many others have cut their running rates significantly due to lower crude oil supplies and difficulties to sell jet fuel and gasoline. Decrease running rates led to the shortage in petroletum coke and base oils market where DYM Resources is focused on. DYM Resources has a long-term contract with Russian producers which allows the company to offer its clients the product in times of shortage.
