The results will also be reviewed within OMV's analysts and investor conference call broadcast as a live audio-webcast at 11.30am (CET)/ 12.30 Bucharest time.

“In the second quarter of 2008 we again recorded positive results, which significantly improved comparing to the same period last year, due to improved operational performance as well as high oil prices. We made higher investments of 74% compared to the same period in 2007, kept oil production at the stabilized level of last year, increased refining efficiency and recorded a significant increase in oil products sales. Operational profit was lower than in Q1/08 mainly due to lower gas production, higher depreciation and provisions.
Given the current global energy environment, marked by high energy prices and increasing demand, we will continue to focus on strong measures to maintain the level of hydrocarbon production, increase energy efficiency and develop the renewable energy, all supported by considerable investment amounts. Our entry into the power business together with our renewable energy projects will enable us to make the transition, in the mid to long term, from an oil and gas company to an energy company. ”
