Turkmenistan oil product exports decreased by 35 percent in 2015, to around 2.5 million tons, according to data compiled by DYM Resources.
Sales levels at the same time were stable compared to 2014, at 4.6 million tons.
“Loadings were almost twice lower compared to sales in 2015, which shows that is it easy to buy products in Turkmenistan, but hard to actually deliver them overseas,” commented DYM Resources project manager Denis Varaksin. “That is why it is important to have a reliable partner such as DYM, with special expertise and a local presence in Turkmenistan,” he added.
Fuel oil exports almost halved, while naphtha and base oils export loadings rose.
