17 November 2021

Rosneft exercised the pre-emption right for 37.5% share of the PCK (Schwedt) refinery from Shell. Relevant notifications have been shared with the partner. The transaction is subject to government and regulatory approvals.

As result of the purchase, Rosneft will increase its shareholding in PCK from 54.17% to 91.67%.

Rosneft Chief Executive Officer Igor Sechin noted: “Increasing the share of PCK refinery is testament to the strategic importance of the German market for Rosneft. The Company builds long-term relationships with its German partners, provides timely and uninterrupted crude supplies, and modernizes key refinery units.

PCK is one of the most technologically complex refineries in Germany, with a Nelson index of 9.8. Rosneft plans to strengthen the technological leadership of the refinery, including through the implementation of low-carbon projects, considering the current environmental agenda of the EU. The company is already developing projects aimed at the production of cleaner fuels, such as "green" hydrogen and sustainable aviation fuel. Work in this direction will continue”.
