Rompetrol opens 15 new gas stations, MOL 11 new stations

Rompetrol plans to open 15 new gas stations in Romania this year, while MOL wants to open 11 new gas stations, the two companies’ representatives stated on Monday at an event focusing on energy topics. “In Romania, we opened 5 new stations last year and this year we plan to open 15 new stations throughout the country,” KMG International (former Rompetrol Group) Vice President Catalin Dumitru stated.

In her turn, MOL Romania Country Manager Kinga Daradics pointed out that the company opened 7 new gas stations last year, and will open 11 more this year.

At the same time, Neil Anthony Morgan, member of the OMV Petrom Board, responsible for Downstream Oil, pointed out that last year the company opened 8 new gas stations, located on highways, and that this year it will focus on optimizing the network and rendering it efficient.

The oil company representatives also pointed out that fuel demand on the retail segment became revitalized last year, as a result of the oil price slump which resulted in lower gas pump prices.

Asked whether OMV Petrom currently has a plan to sell gas stations or the refinery, Morgan pointed out that there is no strategic plan at this moment, however the company is analyzing the opportunities that appear on the market.

OMV Petrom announced on Thursday that it is taking into account a barrel price of USD 40 this year.
