3.02 Million m3
11 Million Tons
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. İzmit Refinery is located at the center of a consumption hub that accounts for about 33% of Turkish petroleum products consumption. The refinery is capable of producing at Euro V standards in compliance with EU norms.
The Residuum Upgrading Facility, which was commissioned and began test production at end 2014, started up full scale production in May 2015. As a result, a total of 12.1 million tons of material, including 11.2 million tons of crude oil and semi finished products, were processed at the RUP Facility at maximum capacity.
2.51 Million m3
11 Million Tons
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.
İzmir refinery has a 7.66 Nelson Complexity. A total of 11.3 million tons of raw material 11.1 million tons of crude oil, including semi finished products was processed at Izmir Refinery in 2015.
1.38 Million m3
5 Million Tons
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. Kırıkkale Refinery has an annual 5 million ton crude oil processing capacity; its crude oil supply is realized via BOTAŞ’s Ceyhan Terminal and the Ceyhan-Kırıkkale pipeline.
With a Nelson complexity of 6.32, the Kırıkkale Refinery has Turkey’s largest road tanker filling capacity.
253 Thousand m3
1.1 Million Tons
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 1.1 million tons/year.
The refinery has the advantage of being located near domestic sources of crude oil; however, since it does not have upgrading units, its configuration is simple and its Nelson complexity index is 1.83.
