“The global demand of electric energy is likely to increase by 50%. The primary power resources (coal, crude oil and gas) are limited and Romania’s dependence to imports may enhance (to one/two international providers)” said Mariana Gheorghe.

According to Petrom’s CEO , the traditional power resources are not sufficient and the country must stimulate the development of alternative energy. “Romania’s potential is high in alternative energy: wind energy, geothermal power”, Mariana Gheorghe added.

With activities in the business segments of Exploration and Production, Refining, Marketing as well as Gas, Petrom has proved oil and gas reserves of 940 mn boe, a maximum refining capacity of 8 million metric tons per year, approximately 600 filling stations in Romania and 200 filling stations in Moldova, Bulgaria and Serbia.
