Bulgarian refinery drives increase of Russia's Lukoil 9-mo throughput in Europe Author: Lukoil Neftochim Burgas / All rights reserved.

SOFIA (Bulgaria), November 15 (SeeNews) - Russian energy giant Lukoil said that the throughput of its refineries in Europe rose by an annual 2% to 18.4 million tonnes in the first nine months of 2019, backed by higher throughput at its Bulgarian refinery Lukoil Neftochim Burgas.

The Bulgarian refinery's year-on-year change in throughput was positively affected by maintenance works at the refinery in the first quarter of 2018, which lowered its production at the time, Lukoil said in a statement earlier this year.

Outside Russia, Lukoil also operates refineries in Romania and Italy.

In the third quarter alone, the throughput of Lukoil's refineries in Bulgaria, Romania and Italy increased by 8.1% compared with the previous quarter, to 6.6 million tonnes.
