Westport Trading Europe Limited (WTL) from the USA is building a complex of equipment for delayed coking and tar de-asphalting on the territory of the TCOR. The project with a total cost of 120 million euros started at the end of 2019. Completion of construction is scheduled for 2022.

The work is currently being carried out at an accelerated pace. This is facilitated by the attraction of modern high-tech equipment, optimization of production processes, an effective method of financing, as well as a competent distribution of labor costs.

The operation of the new delayed coking equipment will provide an annual production of about 900 thousand tons of raw materials. The annual productivity of tar de-asphalting equipment is planned at the level of 500 thousand tons.

WTL also won a tender for the “turnkey” construction of a new atmospheric oil distillation unit with an “ELOU-AT” electrical desalination unit with a capacity of one million tons per year at the Seydi oil refinery.

With the launch of the new unit, the Turkmenbashi complex of oil refineries will increase the production of petroleum coke, gasoline, liquefied gas and high-quality road bitumen.
