In January – June 2019, Rompetrol Downstream together with Rompetrol Gas have managed an increase of 7% in total fuel sales (gasoline, diesel and LPG) on the local market. The evolution was supported by the expansion of the distribution network and by the important increase in the NFR segment (non-fuel retail).

The fuels produced by Petromidia Navodari refinery are an important factor contributing to the increase of volumes and value. Through modernization and compliance investment programs, the refinery manages to permanently maintain high quality standards.
