Rompetrol Rafinare, part of the KMG International Group, reported significant financial turbulence in 2023. The company’s net profits turned into a $270 million (249,5 million euro) loss, contrasting sharply with the $90 million net profit of the previous year. This downturn was influenced by a 25% devaluation of its properties, plant, and equipment, amounting to a $223 million reduction in asset value, alongside diminished activity and lower market prices. Despite these setbacks, Rompetrol Rafinare’s commitment to transparency and environmental sustainability remains unwavering, as it continues to invest in crucial maintenance and eco-friendly projects.

The oil and gas sector has faced significant challenges in recent years, with Rompetrol Rafinare’s financial struggles in 2023 highlighting the volatility of this industry. The company’s downward revaluation of its assets was a strategic response to changing macroeconomic factors, including reduced European refining margins and a stagnating demand for refined products. This adjustment was meticulously audited by members of the Big Four accounting firms, reflecting the company’s dedication to accurate financial reporting amidst a challenging economic landscape.

Despite the financial downturn, Rompetrol Rafinare demonstrated resilience in its operations. The Petromidia Navodari refinery, accounting for 40% of Romania’s refining capacity, processed over 5 million tonnes of raw materials in 2023. This production included 1.38 million tonnes of gasoline and nearly 2.5 million tonnes of diesel and special aviation fuel, with 65% of the nearly 3.9 million tonnes of fuels produced being supplied to the domestic market. The refinery’s stable supply of raw materials, primarily Kazakh crude, underscores the strategic partnership with KazMunayGas and the importance of the Petromidia refinery in Romania’s energy landscape.
