Romanian energy company OMV Petrom on Friday (14 February) announced it has produced a marine fuel oil with low sulphur content of 0.5% at the Petrobrazi refinery.
The first delivery took place in Port Constanța at the end of 2019 and is unique to the Romanian market.
OMV Petron said this endeavour was made possible with a EUR 3 million investment in the production logistics facilities at the Petrobrazi refinery two years ago.
Up until the launch of this product, the Romanian market was supplied exclusively by fuel imports. Now with Petrobrazi refinery, OMV Petrom expects 70kt of VLSFO to be produced annually, subject to production optimisation to meet demand and maximise value added.
