In Constanţa county, we operate the Petromidia refinery, the Black Sea marine terminal, an extensive network of gas stations, and we have over 1,500 colleagues, locals, who work in the Group's companies.

The people of Năvodari benefit from new facilities for the laboratory analysis and a new medical room in the Obstetrics-Gynecology field, fully equipped." – Florin Chelaru, Mayor of the City of Năvodari.
