SLOVNAFT, a.s., based in Bratislava, is a refinery with a processing capacity of 5.5 – 6 million tonnes of crude oil, annually. The company’s core business is production, warehousing, wholesale and retail sales and distribution. Slovnaft fields the largest retail network in Slovakia offering top quality motor fuels and lubricants as well as other customer services such as shops, gastro service, car wash and others.
The striking feature of the Slovnaft refinery is its high complexity i.e. its high conversion factor and processing flexibility, ranking it among the top 3 in Europe. Installed conversion technology and intensive deep hydro-desulfurization enable production and sales only of top quality sulfur-free fuels.
Ample storage capacity, automated blending equipment, rail and road loading galleries, pipelines connecting refinery stocks with its river Danube port and distribution terminals, a network of several inland depots together with daughter companies operating in key foreign markets such as Poland and the Czech Republic together create the background to active marketing and flexible motor fuel logistics all over Slovakia and neighbouring countries.
Slovnaft’s top quality fuels are a strong competitive advantage demonstrated by the fact that up to 80% of production is exported, mainly to EU member country marketplaces.
Slovnaft entered into a strategic partnership with MOL Rt. in 2000 and, since 2004, has been an integral part of the successful MOL Group, the leading vertically-integrated oil and gas corporation in Central Europe.
