DANUBE

Danube Refinery is located at Százhalombatta near Budapest and began operations in 1965. Operated by MOL, the refinery – with a capacity of 165 000 bpd (8.1 mtpa) of crude oil – it is one of the largest refineries in CEE region.

The facility has 54 major process plants and is flexible in the processing of crudes from Russia through Friendship pipeline, and alternative crude oils through Adria pipeline. It has a high upgrading complexity with FCC (fluid catalytic cracker), MHCKU (mild-hydro cracking unit), Delayed Coker, CCR (catalytic reformer) unit, Aromatics plants, Lube units, and petrochemicals integration through pipeline with MOL Petrochamicals located in Tiszaújváros. It is the leading producer of clean fuels for the Hungarian market, producing diesel and gasoline blended with bio components. It is also a major supplier of CEE region strongly integrated in the MOL Group other refineries in Slovakia and Croatia.

BRATISLAVA

Bratislava refinery belongs to SLOVNAFT Plc. with a processing capacity of 124 000 bpd (6.1 mtpa). Operation began in 1957 but history of refining industry in Bratislava dates back to 1895. In 1895 the Municipal Council of Bratislava gave its consent to construct a mineral oil refinery called Apollo. Unfortunately this refinery was bombed during World War II. The new refinery was relocated and named as the Slovnaft refinery. It processes mainly Russian crude from Friendship Crude Pipeline.

The refinery is ranked as one of the most complex refineries in Europe due to the high complexity (NCI = 11.5).

The facility includes most recent technologies to convert crude into valuable products. The major plants are dedicated to the production of a wide portfolio of motor fuels: Distillation and Vacuum Distillation, Reforming + Aromatics Extraction, Hydrogen-Desulphurisation units, Hydrocrack Unit (HCK), Fluid crack unit (FCC), Residual Hydro-crack Unit.

RIJEKA

Rijeka Refinery is located on Urinj peninsula in Kostrena near Rijeka and began operations in 1965. History of refining in Croatia begun in 1883 with the operation of Rijeka Refinery and until 2008 it was operated at two locations - Rijeka specialized as a lube part and fuel part was in Urinj, Kostrena. The main shareholders of Rijeka Refinery are Croatian Government and MOL Group. The refinery employs about 730 people, and with a capacity of 90 370 bpd (4.5 mtpa) of crude oil it is the largest refinery in Croatia. In the past few years it operates with the capacity of 44 000 bpd of crude oil and 12 000 bpd of Vacuum gas oil.

The facility has 19 major process plants and is flexible in the processing of crudes from Russia, Middle East, Africa, Caspian basin and other points of origin. It has a high upgrading complexity with FCC (fluid catalytic cracker), modern HCU (hydro cracking unit), Visbreaker, and Delayed Coker unit is in phase of design, and is a leading producer of clean fuels (Euro V) for the Croatian market, producing diesel and gasoline blended with bio components. The refinery has its own Power plant for electricity and steam production. The refinery is connected to Adriatic pipeline and crude oil is supplied undersea pipeline from the island Krk with the possibility for delivery of crude. Shipping and delivery of raw materials, gas oils and refinery products is possible by sea and by land including the road and rail transport.

SISAK

Sisak Refinery is located in continental part of Croatia, nearly 60km from Zagreb operated by INA. Sisak Oil Refinery was developed from a Shell storage facility. After construction of modern Combined Process Unit I, it was put in operation in 1956 with a daily capacity of 7300 bpd (2.2 mtpa). In 1964, after the construction of Combined Process Unit II was finished, the Refinery managed to produce over 20 000 bpd of oil. The refinery today employs about 700 people, and is processing approximately 44 000 kbd of crude oil.

The facility has 19 major process plants and is flexible in the processing of different types of crude: Moslavina crude is transported by pipelines, Slavonija crude by barges, REB and Azeri crude through JANAF pipeline. It has a high upgrading complexity with FCC (fluid catalytic cracking), HDS (hydrodesulphurization), Coker and Reformer units. As a part of refinery system modernisation, in Sisak refinery three units have been completed: FCC gasoline desulphurization unit, Claus unit and Isomerization unit. The Sisak refinery was upgraded and modernised to meet EU quality and environmental standards, and boost operational efficiency, in order to compete more successfully in international markets. It is the one of the main producers of clean fuels for the Croatian market, producing gasoline and diesel blended with bio components.

In 2003, Sisak Refinery was integrated within the MOL Group together with Rijeka Refinery and refineries in Hungary and Slovakia.
