Poland's PKN Orlen eyes purchase of 120 OMV filling stations in Slovenia

Wednesday, 10/02/2021

Polish oil refiner and petrol retailer PKN Orlen plans to analyse the potential acquisition of the 120 filling stations in Slovenia put up for sale by Austria's OMV, Polish media reported. 

"We are analysing all offers that appear in the region. So we will also analyse this one," Polish news agency PAP quoted PKN Orlen board member Patrycja Klarecka as saying on Monday. 

Last week, OMV said it plans to divest its business in Slovenia as part of a 2 billion euro ($2.4 million) asset disposal programme aimed to reduce its gearing ratio. With its limited integration within the downstream oil value chain, the divestment of the business in Slovenia represents a further step in OMV's portfolio optimisation, the Austrian company explained. 

OMV currently operates filling stations under the OMV, Eurotruck, Avanti and Diskont brands in Slovenia.
