"The modernisation of the Petrobrazi refinery was a necessary step to adapt to the specific of the market in Romania, which modified substantially against the moment the refinery was designed. The increase of the diesel production, resulted as a result of the process of modernisation, will contribute to the reduction of imports of diesel of Romania, with positive impact on the current account deficit,"Mariana Gheorghe CEO Petrom said.

The Petrobrazi Refinery has a Nelson indicator (which shows the complexity of the installations and equipments) of 11.28, the highest in the region.

Following the process of modernisation, diesel and kerosene will have a share of up to 45 per cent in the structure of products obtained in Petrobrazi, while the production of diesel is over 60 per cent higher than in 2009. At the same time, the modernisation of the installations led to the reduction of the consumption of energy with approximately 40 per cent against 2004.
