Socar Star Refinery Inaugurated With An International Ceremony

Realized with an investment value of 6,3 billion dollars by SOCAR, the biggest direct foreign investor of Turkey, STAR Refinery was inaugurated with an international ceremony. With its annual crude oil processing capacity of 10 million tons, the Refinery will substantially meet the needs of Turkey for petroleum products. 

Covering more than 1,680,000 sq. meters and being one of the largest petroleum operations in EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) region, the refinery is expected to fully eliminate Turkey's need to import jet fuel, which will correspond to 7-8% of its total production.

Prota’s architectural, structural, geotechnical, electrical, mechanical and fire engineering teams proudly delivered entire design services of this prestigious project.
