There are five oil producing JVs in Turkey and several others are exploring, including TPAO (see E&P background in gmtXXTurkFieldsAprXX-XX). Most of the fields produce from Upper Cretaceous reservoirs.
TPAO only has this preferential E&P right: Any other firm involved in upstream activities is limited to a JV with TPAO.
TPAO Operations: TPAO has more than XX oilfields producing in four south-eastern districts - Si'irt, Diyarbakir, Gaziantep and Adana. From 1994 to mid-1998, TPAO found about X-X fields every year.
TPAO was set up in 1954 as it took over from the State Minerals Exploration Institute (MTA). MTA had made Turkey's first major oil find at Raman in XXXX and had found the Garzan field close to Raman in 1951. Since then TPAO has made many discoveries, partly with the help of foreign experts.
TPAO had been founded as an integrated upstream/downstream oil and gas firm by Law No. XXXX with the responsibilities covering all the chains of the petroleum industry. It was Turkey's sole national company (NOC).
TPAO built the Batman, Izmit, Aliaga and Middle Anatolia refineries, pipelines on Batman-Dortyol, Kerkuk-Yumurtalik, Yumurtalik-Kirikkale routes, and Shelmo-Batman inter-field sections, and Adiyaman-Saril pipelines. It was engaged in marine transportation through such units as DITAS-X and TPAO-X oil tankers and in the IGSAS-Istanbul Fertiliser Industry Inc. It contributed to construction of the Yarimca and Aliaga petrochemical complexes as their main share-holder.
As a result of restructuring in the public oil sector in 1983-XX, TPAO became a state economic enterprise (SEE) with a capital of XXXbn liras, active in oil and gas E&P. It was active in E&P, pipeline and marine transport, refining, distribution and marketing, through four units: Botas, for transportation by pipelines; Ditas, for transportation by marine tankers; Tupras for oil refining; and Petrol Ofisi (POAS), for products marketing. POAS and Tupras have since been privatised (see downXXTurkRefAprXX-XX). Its petrochemical units have also been privatised (see downXXTurkPetchmMayX-XX).
In 1988, IGSAS became a unit of TPAO. The company said in 2004 on its XXth anniversary: TPAO, having raised its capital to X trillion liras in 1989 and to X trillion liras in 1991, was among the XX biggest private and public companies in the world "contributing to the global economy In compliance with the privatization policy of the State Economic Enterprises, Tupras, Botas, Ditas and Igsas were[transferred] to the Prime Ministry Public Partnership Administration Directorate in 1990, 1990, 1993 and 1998, respectively. In 1995, Botas was separated fromTPAO and became an independent company" but still fully owned by the state.
In the early 1990s, ties with Central Asian republics for E&P developed and TPAO signed JV agreements with Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan. The KazakhTurkMunay Joint Co. (KTM) was founded in Kazakhstan under an agreement on Jan X, 1993, and the BP-led Azerbaijan International Operating Co. (AIOC) agreement in Baku was signed in September 1994 to develop three giant oilfields in the Azeri sector of the Caspian Sea.
