OMV Petrom commissioned the largest crude oil storage tank in Romania, at Petrobrazi refinery
  - The construction of the new oil tank is part of the refinery's modernization program
  - The tank has an insulation system that reduces vapour emissions by 98%
  - The insulation system includes the largest aluminium dome in Romania
  - The total investment was more than EUR 23 million

OMV Petrom, the largest integrated energy producer in Southeastern Europe, commissioned a new crude oil tank, the largest in Romania, on the Petrobrazi refinery platform. The tank has been designed and built according to the latest standards in the field, for increased safety in use. It features double walls and a double base, an aluminium dome cover, and an inner floating lid to retain vapour emissions. The construction of the project took approximately two years, with investments exceeding EUR 23 million.

Radu Caprau, member of OMV Petrom's Executive Board, responsible for Refining and Marketing: "The construction of the new oil tank represents another important project successfully completed on the Petrobrazi platform, along with the installation of new coke drums and other modernization projects. All these investments strengthen our ability to ensure the smooth operation of the refinery in safe conditions and to ensure the fuel stocks necessary to supply the market in Romania and the region. The project has an important environmental component by reducing vapour emissions to near zero."

The tank, taller than a 10-story building, has a total capacity of 60,000 cubic meters and can store raw material for the equivalent of 1.2 million fuel fills.

The aluminum dome, the largest structure of this type in Romania, is an impressive construction, weighing 53 tons, with a height of 15 meters and a diameter of 72 meters. The lifting of the dome into position was done using, for the first time in Romania, a pneumatic system consisting of 28 lifting devices, centrally operated.

Since 2005, OMV Petrom has invested more than EUR 2 billion in the Petrobrazi refinery. One third of this investment has contributed to reducing the environmental impact.
