Where crude oil meets the customers
The retail market we operate in is more dynamic and consumers’ decisions are influenced by the quality of the products, services and brand reputation.
Rompetrol enjoys meeting the complex needs of its clients with an extended network of over 1,000 fuel distribution points in Europe (Romania, Moldova, Bulgaria, Georgia), a contemporary shop concept, proven premium quality fuels, the largest LPG network and a uniquely innovative payment card.
With a legacy of almost 40 years, the Rompetrol brand evolved as a European brand after starting the expansion in the distribution segment in 2002, being the only local distribution brand to be present in 5 external markets: Moldova, Bulgaria, Georgia, France and Spain.
Our long-term objectives for the retail and marketing activities is to develop the network of Rompetrol and partner-controlled filling stations and also increase the retail sales, to consolidate the market share, to further strengthen our customers' loyalty and to consolidate the Rompetrol brand in countries where we have operations.
The year 2020 brought a significant change, the spread of the Covid-19 virus affecting in the most unexpected ways the social, economic and geopolitical context. The downstream segment (fuel production and distribution) was affected by limited travel, but we quickly adapted continuing consolidating and developing retail activities in the Black Sea region, but also expanding the range of products and services offered.
All the Group's gas stations in the Black Sea region were open and operated in accordance with the recommendations and decisions adopted by local and central authorities. At the same time, they were involved in supporting the authorities' fight against the new virus, by donating fuel, medical supplies and medical equipment.
In such a difficult period, we managed to protect our employees and customers, but also continue our investments and, implicitly, the creation of new jobs and new sources of financing for local and central budgets, so necessary to combat the spread of the pandemic.
