Turkey's Tupras To Invest $10B By 2050 As Part Of Strategic Transition Plan

Company kickstarts its strategic transition roadmap to become carbon neutral by 2050.

Turkey's energy giant Tupras plans to invest $5 billion by 2035 and $10 billion in total by 2050 as part of its Strategic Transition Plan, the company announced on Wednesday.
Under the parent company Koc Holding's "Carbon Transition Program", which comprises feasible steps to combat the climate crisis and for the company to become carbon neutral by 2050, Tupras announced its "Strategic Transition Plan" in an attempt to decrease its carbon footprint.
Thanks to investments towards new energy resources and energy efficiency projects, Tupras projects a reduction of its carbon emissions by 27% in 2030 and 35% by 2035 compared to 2017 levels, before becoming carbon neutral in 2050.
As part of its Strategic Transition Plan, the company will mostly invest in new energy resources such as sustainable aviation fuels, green hydrogen and zero-carbon electricity.
"In the new period, we will focus on sustainable refining, biofuels, zero-carbon electricity and green hydrogen. Our strong side, refining, will be the main driver of our transition," Tupras General Manager Ibrahim Yelmenoglu said during the company's press conference on Wednesday.
Tupras will assign nearly $2.3 billion by 2035 for energy efficiency, modernization, decarbonization and value-added production projects, according to Yelmenoglu, while refining is expected to constitute 90% of the company's operating margin by 2030 and 70% between 2030 and 2035.
"Most of the resources that we will gain from refining will be transferred to new areas and reducing our carbon footprint, while we aim to continue with our high dividend pay policy," Yelmenogulu said.
With time, hydrogen will become our main commercial product, rather than just a side product in our production process, he added.
With plans to have 1 gigawatt (GW) of installed capacity by 2030 and 2.5 GW by 2035, the company aims to provide consumers with zero-carbon electricity.
Tupras has four refineries established in Kocaeli, Izmir, Kirikkale and Batman with a total crude oil processing capacity of 30 million tons per year.
