Abstract

The following paper proposes establishing a crude oil refinery near Taq Taq field in Koya city. This idea was developed due to the increasing demand on the transportation and heating fuel in Kurdistan generally and Koya city in particular. The major factor that encourages constructing this refinery is having enormous amounts of crude oil in the Taq Taq field, as well as constructing the new pipeline that connects Kurdistan oil with the Iraqi pipeline to Ceyhan fishkabur in Turkey. The study starts by introducing Taq Taq field and the importance of its geographic location, and then it provides a brief understanding of the refining process and its main steps. This paper also demonstrates the major products (fractions) of the petroleum refining process with a brief description of each fraction. Finally, it summarises the impact of establishing such a refinery on Koya city. Keywords: Darbaro, Ceyhan, KRG, infrastructure, distillation.
