- Petrobrazi refinery six-week planned shutdown enables Petrom to process its entire domestic crude production
Mariana Gheorghe,CEO of OMV Petrom S.A.:"In the first half of 2012 we achieved better financial performance compared with the same period in 2011, thanks to marginally higher crude price and favorable FX environment. Q2/12 operational result was burdened by lower hydrocarbon production due to the decline at some key fields in Romania and the Petrobrazi refinery six-week planned shutdown to upgrade the crude vacuum distillation unit which enables the processing of Petrom’s entire domestic crude production while increasing middle distillates yield and reducing energy consumption. This June, the Supervisory Board has approved Petrom’s strategic directions for 2021. Petrom remains committed to delivering sustainable performance and focusing on potential upstream growth opportunities. This will require continuing our investments in the range of EUR 0.8-1.2 bn p.a. in the next years, assuming robust market fundamentals and investment-friendly regulatory and fiscal environment."
