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.
2.5 Million m3
The refinery’s production of main marketable petroleum products -consisting of LPG, naphtha, gasoline, jet fuel, diesel, base oil, heating oil, fuel oil, bitumen, wax, extracts and other products- reached to 10.6 million tons. İzmir Refinery has a 400 thousand tons of capacity base oil production unit, the only one of its kind in Turkey.In 2017, the İzmir Refinery achieved sales of 10.7 million tons, of which 7.6 million tons were sold domestically.HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCES GUIDE
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.
1.3 Million m3
Once production got underway at the İzmit Refinery Fuel Oil Conversion Facility, it was ensured that the Kırıkkale Refinery -which sends semi-finished products to this unit to be fed to the charger- achieved its targeted operational performance. In 2017, the Refinery processed a total of 5.4 million tons, including 5.3 million tons of crude oil and with semi-finished products, and full capacity utilization was achieved.
In 2017, 5.2 million tons of petroleum products were produced -including the main products of LPG, gasoline, jet fuel, kerosene, diesel, fuel oil and bitumen- in addition to the products processed at the RUP facility. Together with refinery transfers, a total of 4.4 million tons of products were sold during the year.
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.
268 Thousand m3
The Batman Refinery recorded its highest ever crude oil processing volume in 2017, at 1.1 million tons, in the bitumen mode. In parallel with the increase in demand for bitumen, sales of bitumen reached another record high, with 653 thousand tons.Semi-finished products produced at the Batman Refinery and the diesel and gasoline products from the Kırıkkale and İzmir refineries are transported by railway.
At the Batman Refinery, the sale of 870 thousand tons of products, which were in accordance with EU specifications, was carried out with products transported from the Kırıkkale and İzmir Refineries.
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.
