ATAŞ Anadolu Refinery
From a Refinery to a Storage Terminal
Turcas owns 5% of ATAŞ Refinery (Anadolu Tasfiyehanesi A.Ş.), which started operations in 1962 in Mersin. Currently, Turcas’s partners in ATAŞ are BP (68%) and Shell (27%). As a result of investments made after the decision to close down ATAŞ Refinery and transform it into a large-scale petroleum products terminal on the Mediterranean coast in 2004, ATAŞ Terminal today serves as a licensedstorage facility. The terminal has a petroleum products storage capacity of 570,000 m3 as well as its own pier, where high-capacity ships can dock. Some 32% of ATAŞ’s total storage capacity, jointly owned by Shell (27%) and Turcas (5%), has been allocated to STAŞ.
