This article reports that development plans in Turkey are stacking up as the Turkish industrial conglomerate Sanko Holding announced it is progressing a refining and petrochemicals complex in Ceyhan near the new Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline. This follows an announcement from Indian Oil Corporation and Turkey's Calik Enerji on plans to build a $4.9bn refinery-cum-petrochemicals complex near the Caspian Sea pipeline. Also, Lukoil has revealed that discussions with Turkish government officials on a proposed $2bn-2.5bn Black Sea coast oil refinery have resulted in the inclusion of petrochemical plants. Sanko Holding said initial contacts with Anglo-Russian TNK-BP were yet to produce project proposals that could be taken further, but that it was looking to conduct talks with several international majors.
