In the next three years, ORLEN Unipetrol will be forced to send an estimated CZK 5bn to CZK 10bn to reconfigure the Litvínov refinery so that it can process non-Russian crude oil types.

This information was provided to ČIANEWS by spokesman Pavel Kaidl. In terms of the state’s enquiry into a possible increase in diesel production in connection with the departure from embargoed Russian crude oil and derivatives, he said that the refinery did not count on increasing the production of fossil fuels in its strategy. It would be necessary to invest CZK 20bn to increase the production volume by 25% in the years 2023 to 2026.
