Turkmens to refine 570,000 tpy Uzbek oil

Feb 18, 1997 01:00 AM

Feb. 4, 1997 Turkmenistan is to refine around 570,000 tonnes of oil and gas condensate from neighbouring Uzbekistan this year, with oil products to be sold across Central Asia. The regional daily Lebapskaya Pravda, citing a Turkmen energy official, said the former Soviet republic's refinery in Seidi, near its northern border with Uzbekistan, would take delivery of 574,000 tonnes (11,480 barrels per day) of Uzbek crude in 1997.
A spokesman for Turkmenistan's oil and gas ministry told that the republic had agreed with Uzbekistan to refine around 570,000 tonnes (11,400 bpd) of Uzbek oil annually for 15 years. The crude is sourced from Uzbekistan's rich Kokdumalak oil field across the border. Petroleum products will be marketed in other Central Asian nations.
Officials say Turkmenistan's own energy needs are met by its Turkmenbashi refinery on the Caspian coast, now undergoing a $ 500 mm modernisation.
