Maintenance at Romanian refinery to weigh on OMV's Q2 operating profit

VIENNA,  (Reuters) - Austria’s oil and gas group OMV said planned maintenance at its Petrobrazi refinery in Romania will negatively affect its operating profit in the second quarter.

The full-site turnaround will impact its second-quarter clean current cost of supplies (CCS) earnings in its downstream business by around 35 million euros ($41 million) versus the first quarter, the group said on Wednesday.

The shutdown required OMV to store more crude, leading to not yet realized profits of around 60 million euros, it said.
