In order to provide gasoline and diesel fuel to Tashkent and the surrounding region, Saneg’s refueling complex on the premises of Tashkent international Airport has been expanded to include 6 vertical steel tanks that can store an additional 12 thousand cubic meters of petroleum products.
The terminal’s main function is to offload light oil products from railway tankers to be stored in the tank farm for subsequent transshipment, which will facilitate daily fuel sales of 1.5 thousand tons.
“At the moment, the existing oil depot is loading and unloading AI-92 and AI-80 unleaded gasolines produced at the Ferghana Oil Refinery, as well as diesel fuel. Thanks to the launch of Saneg’s new logistics complex, we will be able to meet the growing demand for high-quality fuel and ensure delivery to the capital's gas stations within an hour, supported by a fleet of 39 fuel trucks,” said Ulugbek Shernazarov, Saneg’s Deputy General Director for Commercial Affairs.
The total cost of the project, executed by Enter Engineering, was $10 million, and was responsible for creating 35 new jobs as part of Saneg’s commitment to Uzbekistan’s human capital development.
