Rompetrol Rafinare, a member company of the KMG International Group, managed to improve its financial indicators in 2021, amid a sales volume similar to the previous year, but also as a result of higher market quotations compared to similar periods from 2020.
However, the company's consolidated results were impacted by the shutdown of operational processes, caused by the technical incident that occurred on July 2, in the Diesel Hydrotreating Unit (HPM), an event that also affected other facilities in the Petromidia refinery.
In order to restart production activities, for over 80 days, extensive remediation works were carried out on the affected assets. The teams of Rompetrol Rafinare specialists, together with those from Rominserv and with the support of several companies with expertise, managed, in the 3rd quarter of 2021, to lead to the restart of the operational processes, and in the second half of October 2021, the facilities reached optimum operational efficiencies.
Rompetrol Rafinare continued to be a major contributor to Romania's state budget 1.63 billion dollars in 2021.
