The "Westport Trading Europe Limited" won the tender for completion of a construction of a complex of installations of the slowed-down coking for TCOR

The company "Westport Trading Europe Limited, (WTL)" (USA) won the tender for completion of a construction of a complex of installations of the slowed-down coking and deasphaltizing of tar (UZK-DAG). Installation of the slowed-down coking is intended for conversion of a heavy remaining balance of oil processing – tar, fuel oil and asphalt with receipt of additional amount of gas, gasoline, light and heavy gasoil and oil coke. Installation of deasphaltizing of DAG is intended for extraction by using the solvent from tar the paraffin-naphthene hydrocarbons – the deasfaltizer for further production of oils and asphalt for installation of the slowed-down coking of TCOR. 

Now technologists of the WTL company develop projects of receipt of new types of products from hydrocarbon raw materials which release is not performed in Turkmenistan. One of them is oil needle coke. It is demanded in many strategic industries of economy of the developed states, and in the world market of oil products its sale is extremely profitable. 

– Needle coke – is the high-structured carbon product with low content of metals and sulfurs, – the deputy director of branch of the Westport Trading Europe Limited company (USA) in Turkmenistan, Allaberdy Ylyasov Doctor of Engineering says. – It is the expensive product received by oil refining and used for production of the graphitized electrodes. Graphite and its derivatives are actively applied in atomic, metallurgical, chemical, space industries. The need for it creates favorable conditions for the organization of release of this type of products in Turkmenistan. 

On TCOR make two types of oil coke – total (semifinished product) and calcinated. But in comparison with the coke total price needle coke in the world market is 5-7 times more expensive, its cost reaches two thousand US dollars for one ton. By estimates of the international experts, the need for needle coke in the next years will increase. 

The main condition for the organization of industrial production of needle coke is availability of necessary resources of high-quality raw materials and the corresponding capacities for coking. Low-sulphurous coke is potentially suitable raw materials for receipt of needle coke. Now the only entity in all territory of the CIS making from tar low-sulphurous (with sulfur content – 0,5 percent of weight) coke, is TCOR. 

In recent years the "Westport Trading Europe Limited" company takes active part in the tenders held in the oil and gas industry of Turkmenistan. At the same time foreign specialists suggest to use the most advanced engineering designs of the leading producers and researchers in the field of oil processing and also the original developments based on comprehensive scientific and practical researches with oil of Turkmenistan. It, first of all, offers on production of highly demanded oil needle coke and many others. 

Many researches conducted based on the Ufa state oil technical university, connected with the Turkmen oil have certificates of discoveries. So, for example, in the past, 2016 the Patent office of the Russian Federation registered opening of an innovative method of production of needle coke from the Turkmen oil and the corresponding patent was granted. The chairman of the board of directors of the "Westport Trading Europe Limited" company, Candidate of Technical Sciences Nikolay Yurchenko, the chief technologist of the company, the Doctor of Engineering Gennady Valyavin and the deputy director of branch company in Turkmenistan, Doctor of Engineering Allaberdy Ylyasov became its authors. 

Developed technologies allow to receive high-quality needle coke at the level of the international standards. Technological potential of Turkmenbashi COR gives the bases to arrange there profitable production of high-quality needle coke. 

Implementation of the large-scale investment projects aimed at release of products competitive in the world markets is one of strategic tasks of development of the oil and gas industry. The legal aspect of investing activities is regulated by Laws of Turkmenistan – "About foreign economic activity", "About foreign investments", "About investing activities in Turkmenistan" and others.
