Since June 2004, on the basis of an agreement with the Czech Republic National Property Fund we are the majority stakeholder (63%) of the UNIPETROL a.s responsible for strategic management of a large number of subsidiaries operating in the fuel and petroleum sector in such areas as crude processing, distribution of fuels and petrochemical production.
The key companies of UNIPETROL a.s. include Ceska Rafinerska – the largest crude oil processing company in the Czech Republic, Paramo – the largest producer and supplier of vehicle fuels, Diesel oils, industrial oils and other chemical products, Chemopetrol – the main supplier of semi-products to the chemical, plastics and pharmaceutical industries, Benzina – the largest fuel retail operator in the Czech Republic.
In the Czech Republic, the ORLEN Group managed to retain its leading position with respect to the number of service stations as Benzina managed 339 stations as at the end of 2015. Effective measures taken at the operating level and the optimisation of the retail price management process contributed to the growth of ORLEN’s share in the Czech retail market by 0.8 pp year on year, to 15.9%.
