Turkmenbashi Oil Refinery Doubles LNG Output
Turkmenbashi Complex of Oil Refineries is Turkmenistan's largest LNG producer.

Turkmenbashi Complex of Oil Refineries exported more than 45 thousand tons of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in less than six months of this year. Thus, the company fulfilled the production plan by 201%.

According to the Turkmenistan’s Golden Age news outlet’s Friday report, the TCOR is the country’s largest LNG producer. The company produces over 300 thousand or two thirds of the LNG produced in the country.

The produced LNG is intended for domestic needs and exports. The company uses about 200 thousand tons of the LNG in the production of polypropylene and a component of high-octane gasoline.

The use of liquefied gas saves oil resources, and its production does not require deep processing of raw materials.

This circumstance allows many countries to seriously consider switching to liquefied gas as an alternative to gasoline and diesel fuel.

The TCOR produces gasoline, aviation and technical kerosene, jet and diesel fuel, fuel oil, lubricating oil, polypropylene, heating oil, gasoil, petroleum coke, liquefied natural gas, construction and road bitumen and other petrochemical products, which are sold via the State Commodity and Raw Materials Exchange of Turkmenistan.
