Turkmenistan starts exporting 98 RON gasoline to Afghanistan
Ashgabat, Turkmenistan, May 3
By Huseyn Hasanov – Trend:
The first cargo of 98 RON (AI 98) ultra premium gasoline, produced at the Seydi oil refinery in Turkmenistan, was sent to Afghanistan, said an article on Nebit-Gaz, the online newspaper of the Turkmen Oil and Gas Complex.
Production of the 98 RON gasoline became possible through the commissioning of LCh-35-11/1000 catalytic reforming unit at the refinery.
The unit’s commissioning was implemented by the WTL (FZE) group of companies from the UAE and the Westport Trading Europe Limited from the US.
It is planned to annually produce 412,000 tons of components of the 98 RON gasoline with help of the new unit.
The produced 98 RON components will be used for production of 95 RON (AI 95), 92 RON (AI 92) and 80 RON (AI 80) gasoline brands, which comply with Euro 5 standards.
Using this type of motor fuel will make it possible to reduce emissions of exhaust gases and combustion products into the atmosphere.
