Georgia imported over 40 thousand tons of aviation fuel, which accounts for around 80% of the total imports, from Turkmenistan during the first 11 months of 2020, the online newspaper of the Oil and Gas Complex of Turkmenistan reported on Friday citing the data from the Union of Oil Product Importers of Georgia.
The exported fuel was produced at the Turkmenbashi Complex of Oil Refineries (TCOR).
According to the report, Turkmenistan has been the leading exporter of aviation fuel to Georgia for several years in a row, successfully competing with suppliers from Turkey, Romania and other countries.
Turkmenbashi Complex of Oil Refineries’ other oil products are also in stable demand in Georgia. From January to November period, Turkmenistan exported more than 93 thousand tons of motor gasoline and diesel fuel to the Georgian market.
Last year, Georgia for the first time imported A-91 brand gasoline from Turkmenistan (17% of total imports in the first quarter of 2020).
