The company was well-knowned as Rompetrol Group N.V until 2014 when it was renamed in KMG International as part of the strategy to integrate all activities within NC KazMunayGas JSC- the Group’s shareholder and Kazakhstan's national oil and gas operator and to promote one single brand of companies for its successful entry into foreign markets.
Rompetrol is the main brand of KMG International, used for the refining, petrochemicalsand retail activities in Romania, Moldova, Bulgaria, Georgia and also for well services in the upstream area. We have gained success not only through development at international level, but also in more than 4 decades of expertise in the oil industry.
The company owns the largest refinery in Romania and one of the most modern refineries in the Black Sea region – Petromidia – which boasts a processing capacity of over 5 million tons per year.
The strategic position of the refinery in Midia Port allows fast shipping of crude oil to Petromidia and oil products to KMG International subsidiaries in Moldova, Georgia, Bulgaria as well as to other traditional partners in the Black Sea region.
The Group operates a second refinery, Vega, with a history of over 110 years, which evolved from a classical oil refining unit to a producer and provider of special products, obtained from semi-finished materials delivered by Petromidia. Petromidia and Vega refineries work in full synergy manufacturing high added-value products.
Through KMG Trading AG, the trading subsidiary located in Switzerland, the Group also carries out major oil and oil products trading operations in the Black Sea and Mediterranean regions.
