Integrated Annual Report 2020

As its main feedstock, Grupa LOTOS S.A. relies on Russian REBCO (Russian Export Blend Crude Oil). Compared with the global Brent oil benchmark, REBCO is a blend of heavier crude grades with higher sulfur content, and yields more middle distillates (diesel oil, aviation fuel). The Grupa LOTOS refinery also processed crude oil produced domestically (from the Lubiatów and Rozewie fields) and from Lithuanian assets. The balance of the feedstock was sourced from other directions.
