The driving motor behind increased oil processing was the restoration of full production capacities at the Mažeikiai refinery after failure of a vacuum distillation column in October 2006. The largest volume of oil was processed at the Płock refinery (approximately 14.5 mn tonnes) and at the Mažeikiai refinery (approximately 9.2 mn tonnes). Production in all ORLEN Group refineries was based to a large extent on Russian REBCO oil, whose share in total oil processing amounted to 89%. Other types of processed oil included: Ekofisk, Forties, Gulfaks, Oseberg, Statfjord and Azeri Light. Polish Dębno and Zielonogórska oil represented approximately 2% of oil processed in the Group’s refineries located in Poland.
