The construction of a complex of delayed coking and tar deasphalting units (UZK-DAG) has begun at the Turkmenbashi complex of oil refineries. The project is implemented by Westport Trading Europe Limited (USA).

The plant is designed for processing all heavy residues at the plant (tars, oil sludge, asphalt and other residues) into more valuable light oil products (gasoline, diesel fuel) and electrode coke.

UZK-DAG will be designed taking into account the possibility of connecting the future unit for the production of needle coke in demand in the industry. The complex of technical solutions and measures presented in the project will ensure the reliability, efficiency and safe operation of the facility, as well as environmental protection.

The Westport Trading Europe Limited company works more than twenty years in Turkmenistan. During this time, the projects prepared by her were successfully implemented. Taking an active part in the large-scale state programs of the oil and gas complex initiated by President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov, "WTL" continues to strengthen its position in the promising Turkmen market.

Currently, the company is developing new projects for the oil and gas sector, as the creation of modern, high-tech and efficient production lines in Turkmenistan on the basis of Turkmenbashi complex of oil refinery corresponds to the objectives of the state "program of development of the oil and gas industry of Turkmenistan until 2030".
