From energy stations to integrated service centers

The Retail Division of the group operates the gas station networks in Romania and the Black Sea region, with Rompetrol being the first Romanian energy company to expand regionally.

The evolution of the Rompetrol brand can be seen in both product diversification and the constant innovation brought to the concept of the distribution stations. This development is based on the changing needs of consumers, from simple refueling to maximizing the time spent at gas stations, by solving as many daily needs as possible.

These innovations, which the group tests and implements in a highly competitive market, are introduced in the countries where the company has subsidiaries, thus consolidating its regional market share.

Rompetrol in Romania

Unique concepts, integrated services, and expanding the hei brand
Developing the distribution network is a priority for Rompetrol.
This is an important direction of the Kazakh-Romanian Energy Investment Fund.

The mission of this fund is to implement projects in the energy sector, contributing to the development of the Romanian energy sector and creating added value for its shareholders - KMG International N.V. and the Administration Company of  Participation in Energy (SAPE). All new distribution stations will operate under the Rompetrol brand.

In 2013, a new exterior design for the stations was launched, which was improved in 2019 by adapting the exterior appearance and optimizing the space dedicated to food products, with focus on the hei brand.

​​​​​​​The structural and visual elements have a minimalist format and emphasize the hei brand, announcing the development of a range of fresh products prepared in the station.

The new visual communication elements, digital screens, and technologies used are state-of-the-art and represent Rompetrol's constant effort to implement market trends.
Starting in 2023, Rompetrol is upgrading its distribution stations by opening the first large-scale stations within service centers on the A1 highway, introducing two unique concepts on the Romanian market.

The retail strategy in Romania is based
on 3 development directions

1. Expansion of the Rompetrol station network, both through the construction of new stations and the opening of new franchises.

The stations on the A1 highway (Sibiu - Nadlac) bring together under a new concept generous spaces dedicated to the restaurant, café, and shop areas.

Rompetrol is the first station network with a restaurant, and in order to strengthen this type of service centers, Rompetrol has strategic partnerships with well-known retailers.

One of them is with KFC, which has inaugurated three spaces in the vicinity of Rompetrol gas stations in Pecica, Orastie, and Giarmata.

The new stations are part of an investment package of 12 service centers that the Fund will open on the A1 highway in 2023.

2. Strengthening Rompetrol's position on the retail market by developing its current offers in the shops of the stations and restaurants, while also developing the hei brand through the creation of three distinct service lines:

hei&gourmet for assisted service with restaurant-style dishes

hei&go for products from the shop

hei&coffee for coffee, pastry, and sandwiches

Also, included in the second pillar is the expansion of the hei franchise for the network of stations operated under franchise (Partner stations).

3. Digitizing activities, especially those involving customer interaction.
The high adoption rate of our loyalty program "rompetrolgo", supported by the Rompetrol app, shows the customers' need to integrate technology into their daily routine.

New gas station concept in numbers

Total area:
  • Exterior: between 4,500 and 6,000 square meters
  • Interior: between 400 and 600 square meters
Number of employees: between 45 and 66 per station
  • Dedicated areas for a shop, children's play area, spaces for mothers with children, and facilities for people with disabilities;
  • Fast charging stations for electric cars, green spaces, and parking.
Total investment: approximately 3.5 million USD per station.

Green energy - electric charging stations and solar panels

The first electric charging stations were implemented by Rompetrol starting in 2017, anticipating the need to offer sustainable alternatives and constantly implementing new ways to reduce the impact on the environment: solar panels, vapor recovery systems, and LED lighting systems to save energy.

Currently we have 61 electric vehicle charging points, in 25 stations.

Rompetrol implements e-Mobility project

KMG Rompetrol Development SRL, as Beneficiary, signed a financing agreement with the European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA) for the implementation of the project "Development of Rompetrol's alternative fuel infrastructure on A1 highway at the RO - HU border" funded under the financing instrument "Mechanism for the Interconnection of Europe" (CEF - Transport) 2021-2027.

The local distribution company, Rompetrol Downstream, operates over 1,250 fuel retail points, consisting of its own Rompetrol stations, Partner Rompetrol stations, as well as mobile stations - Rompetrol Express, and internal bases (tanks of 9 and 20 cubic meters located within companies in various industries - transport, construction, agriculture, etc.).
Over the years, Rompetrol established partnerships with independent filling stations all over the country to develop the Rompetrol Partner network. 

Due to the investment in the retail visual identity and in equipment, these filling stations operate according to Rompetrol standards and deliver only fuels produced by the Petromidia refinery.
To cover rural areas, the company first designed Expres mobile stations and then the Fill&Go Fixed Unit concept, tanks of 9 cbm and 20 cbm installed on the premises of car-fleet owning companies.

Rompetrol Downstream coordinates the activity of 6 warehouses located strategically in Arad, Craiova, Mogosoaia, Simleu Silvaniei, Vatra Dornei and Zarnesti, ensuring the fuel distribution flow countrywide.
