Improving energy efficiency at OMV Petrom

Home / Case studies

OMV Petrom is the largest integrated oil and gas group in Southeastern Europe, with an annual oil and gas production of about 61 million boe in 2017. The Group has a refining capacity of 4.5 mn tons/year and operates an 860 MW high efficiency power plant.

At the end of 2017, OMV Petrom was present in the distribution market for oil products in Romania, the Moldavian Republic, Bulgaria and Serbia, through a network of 786 filling stations, operated under two brands, Petrom and OMV.

In order to continue the energy efficiency improvement process according to the Energy Management System implemented and certified according to ISO 50001, OMV Petrom contacted Servelect for specialized consultancy in finding the right solutions in the Upstream sector of its operations. To benefit from an ample, clear and realistic “radiography” of the way the energy is consumed, both on the electrical and on the thermal side, an energy audit was carried out for the 9 Assets of the Upstream Division. At the end of 2017, OMV Petrom operated 208 commercial oil and gas fields in Romania, organized in 9 Assets.
