General frame:

Petromidia is the largest Eastern European refinery, ensures more than 40% of the Romania’s refining capacities and is aligned to BAT (Best Available Technologies) standards and the first in Romania which successfully ended the transition period for the alignment of production plants to European environmental requirements.

This program comes to support the objectives of KazMunayGas in order to diversify crude oil export routes towards the European Union, the presence of the company both in the Black Sea region and in the Mediterranean Sea area, but also the integration of Rompetrol within the value network, from extraction wells to the client’s tank.

Project objectives:
  • Increasing processing capacity from 3.5 to 5 million tons/year of raw materials
  • Starting up the exclusive production of Euro 5 fuels
  • Bringing production in line with the demand for oil products in Romania and the Black Sea region
