Türkiye Petrol Rafinerileri (Tüpraş), a key player in refining and distribution of petroleum products in Turkey, has signed a $200 million, one-year facility with a group of nine banks from the GCC region.
Qatar’s leading investment bank QInvest acted as the sole bookrunner and structuring advisor to Tüpraş.
The other GCC banks involved in the deal are Qatar Islamic Bank, Barwa Bank, The Commercial Bank of Qatar and First Gulf Bank (as mandated lead arrangers), while Ahli United Bank, Al Hilal Bank, Doha Bank and Dubai Islamic Bank acted as lead arrangers.
