OMV Petrom estimates 25,000 tons of modified bitumen sales

Oil and gas company OMV Petrom has started producing polymer modified bitumen under the OMV Starfalt brand, looking at sales of 25,000 tons in Romania and Bulgaria this year, Mediafax informs. The product is sold through the OMV Petrom Marketing subsidiary. The Austrian oil & gas OMV group, who is the majority shareholder in OMV Petrom, produces polymer modified bitumen in Germany, Austria and Hungary.

Delta ACM 93 construction company owner Florea Diaconu in April stated that OMV would deliver raw materials for the production of polymer modified bitumen at a factory based in Popesti-Leordeni and owned by the construction company. The National Roads and Motorways Company (CNADNR) last year recommended road constructors to use the product that is 20 per cent more expensive than regular bitumen but gives higher quality, endurance and life cycle to the carriageway.

Oil and gas drilling company Dafora has completed a drilling installation for OMV Petrom in Moinesti, Bacau County, with an approximate value of EUR 16 M.

The installation is made in Germany and is to be used for oil, gas or geothermal water drillings to maximum depths of 6,000 metres. It is unique in Romania and brings the advantage of a reduced risk of accidents for workers and environmental impact. The installation may be used both in urban agglomerations and in more inaccessible areas and can be assembled and disassembled in a very short time.
