Modernity and efficiency in oil extraction and processing
To improve commercial efficiency, we constantly optimise refinery and logistics processes.
Our core activities focus on three areas:
While efficiently responding to sudden, extraordinary events is part of the Supply Chain Optimisation Division’s daily routine, their scope and dynamics in 2020 were extremely challenging. The dramatic fall in margins on crude processing, middle distillates in particular, and the collapse in fuel demand in the spring required us to respond quickly and implement a whole range of non-standard measures to adjust our refinery operations. Due to the rapid changes in the external landscape, we increased the frequency of our meetings and deepened market and optimisation analyses. The events of 2020 provide us with valuable experience for the future.

The most challenging task facing the Procurement Division in 2020 was to contract materials and services for LOTOS technical and production teams for the purposes of the 2021/2022 maintenance shutdown. The fact that the full scope of the planned maintenance works were performed on schedule proves that we rose to the challenge. As a manager, I am m particularly pleased with the positive feedback from external institutions, including the Polish Supreme Audit Office, which in 2020 audited 1,800 procurement procedures carried out between 2016 and 2020, finding no irregularities.
