Contribution to energy security

Petromidia and Vega represent 44,6% of the local refining capacity and could deliver 70% of the current internal demand for fuels, since Petromidia has the highest yield of white products in the region (gasoline, diesel and jet fuel). Petromidia also has the second-largest reserve of oil and crude products in the regulated emergency stockpile.

To fully ensure energy security, a key element is the diversity of supply sources.

More than 1.4 billion USD were invested to develop the refining and petrochemicals units starting 2007, along with logistics infrastructure for crude oil supply and delivery of finished products in Romania and the Black Sea region.

Rompetrol operates since 2008 the offshore marine terminal, a state of art asset that is a viable, cost efficient alternative supply route with raw materials, having direct access to crude oil supplies from Kazakhstan.

Economic impact

Having most of our production assets in Romania, Rompetrol contributes annually by USD 1.2 billion to the local budget, being one of the largest taxpayers of the country.

We have a large network of suppliers and long-term business partners connected to all our refining and petrochemicals activities. It is a highly skilled and complex field and we are working together to further develop this industry that sustained economic development over the years.

Digital transformation

Petromidia platform has played an essential role in the digital journey of our company, fueled by the continuous desire to learn of our specialists.

The roots of what our assets are today are strongly connected to the professional development of some of our employees that are still working in the refinery, after 40 years.

Rompetrol started to use digital benefits in our daily operations since 2004, when DCS (Distributed Control System) was implemented to fully automate the technological processes from the refining and petrochemicals activity. 


We continue to be a local pioneer by launching a comprehensive digital transformation program by implementing Advanced Process Control (APC) system to our main units in Petromidia refinery. Pandemic has accelerated this trend that we were anticipating, but we believe the fourth industrial revolution – Industry 4.0 is a mandatory step for the Romanian crude oil processing business.


Environmental footprint

New market realities proved us that we need to be flexible enough to adapt to new market demands and trends.

Adoption of digital solutions, the use of artificial intelligence to optimize the activities, more rigorous control of the quality of the finished products help us moving forward and setting the ground for a sustainable development and diversification of the business.

In our efforts to balance the production outcome, minimize technological losses and eliminate accidental shutdowns in the industrial process, we continued to invest in the maintenance and continuous improvement of the integrated QHSE management system, with special focus on reducing the environmental footprint.

 

A series of dedicated projects have been implemented recently for  minimum environmental impact: 

Decrease emissions of sulphur dioxide

Petromidia refinery has a new modern liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) recovery unit, a unique project in Romania. The system ensures a substantial decrease of sulfur dioxide emissions, significantly below the limit imposed by the European Environment regulations. We are proud of this project that was designed, built and implemented by Romanian companies.

Energy efficiency


The use of complex software (APC) at Petromidia aims not only at identifying optimal conditions for adapting the refining capacity to market demand, product quality improvement, but also reducing energy consumption and more effective control of key parameters.

Energy saving



Vega refinery will modernize the thermal power plant, including the installation of a new steam boiler, produced in line with the highest standards. The objective is to increase the efficiency from 91%, at present, to about 96% and reducing the emissions resulting from the steam production process.

Automated vapor recovery system


A fully automated vapor recovery unit was implemented at the auto and rail loading points in the Vega refinery. The vapor recovery unit complies with all the environmental requirements in the field of emissions of volatile organic compounds, resulting from the operations of loading and unloading of petroleum products in the automotive and rail ramps.

Increase the degree of raw materials processed

This facility was implemented in the flow of the Delayed Coking in Petromidia plant, which will lead to an additional recovery of light gas oil. The reduction of the yield of heavy gas oil leads to the increase of raw materials processed in the Petromidia refinery and to a production of approximately 7 tons / hour of steam and, implicitly, to the reduction of the pressure on the system.

Consolidated financial and operational results

Results  9 months 2021

Rompetrol Rafinare recorded increasing financial results in the first nine months of 2021 compared to the same period last year.

The gross turnover was 3.27 billion USD, while the consolidated operational result (EBITDA) registered an increase, from a negative of 21.6 million dollars, to a positive result of almost 87 million dollars. The consolidated net result recorded a negative value of 57.8 million USD, with a return of about three times compared to the level of the first months of 2020.

The company's consolidated results were impacted by the technical incident that occurred on July 2, at the Diesel Hydrotreating (HPM) plant. For this reason, for most of the third quarter of the year, production activity was stopped, which led to a significant decrease in the volume of raw materials processed.

Results 2020

Rompetrol Rafinare managed in 2020 to protect and maintain its production units in operation - Petromidia Navodari and Vega Ploieşti refineries, the petrochemical division, in the context of the negative impact generated by the COVID-19 pandemic. With considerable efforts, we continued to be a pillar of stability for employees, customers, business partners, local and central authorities, both by supporting the national and regional economy (investments, contributions) and by the products obtained (automotive and aviation fuels, bitumen, polymers, hexane). Restrictive measures taken to limit the spread of COVID-19 were also reflected in the sharp decline in demand, high volatility in international fuel quotations, but also in negative refining margins. (-11.2 USD/ton, from a positive value of 13.7 USD/ton in 2019 for Petromidia).
