The İzmit Refinery started production in 1961, with a 1 million tons/year capacity of crude oil processing. As a result of significant capacity augmentation and investments over the years, its design capacity reached 11.5 million tons/year. Following modernization efforts to increase white product productivity, the crude oil processing design capacity was registered at 11.0 million tons/year.
The İzmir Refinery started production in 1972 to meet Turkey’s growing petroleum product demand with a 3 million tons/year crude oil processing capacity. It has since undergone major capacity augmentation and unit modernization to achieve a capacity of 10 million tons/year since 1987. In 2007, its crude oil processing capacity was confirmed to be 11 million tons/year, taking into account revisions made in its distillation capacity.
Established in 1986 to meet the petroleum demands of the Ankara, Central Anatolia, Eastern Mediterranean and Eastern Black Sea regions, the Kırıkkale Refinery has become a facility with mid level complexity by Mediterranean standards with the addition of hydrocracker, isomerization, diesel desulphurization and CCR reformer units.
Commissioned in 1955 with a crude oil processing capacity of 330 thousand tons, the Batman Refinery was the first refinery founded in Turkey. Following an initiative to overcome production bottlenecks in 1960 and the commissioning of a new crude oil processing unit in 1972, Batman Refinery’s crude oil processing capacity reached 1.4 million tons/year.
