SOCAR Turkey, a subsidiary of the State Oil Company of the Azerbaijan Republic (SOCAR), has announced in a press release that the first phase of the petrochemical integration of its STAR refinery has commenced.

The company stated that the recently-inaugurated 200,800 b/d STAR refinery in Aliaga, Turkey delivered 1,303 tons of light naphtha to Petkim’s nearby 3.6 million tons/year petrochemical complex.

The integrated-refinery will be able to produce 1.6 million tons/year of naphtha upon reaching full production capacity, the company reported.

The $6.3 billion refinery received the first loading of crude oil for processing from Azerbaijan in August last year.
