LUKOIL AND FUELSEUROPE MEET TO DISCUSS OIL REFINING

A working meeting between Thomas Mueller, OAO LUKOIL Vice President for Oil Refining, Petrochemistry and Gas Processing, and Chris Beddoes, Director General of FuelsEurope, took place in Brussels. They discussed urgent issues of Europe’s oil-refining industry and the company’s active membership in FuelsEurope.

For 7 consecutive years OAO LUKOIL has been involved in the activities of FuelsEurope, part of the European Petroleum Refiners Association representing the common interests of the European oil-refining industry.

For reference:

The European Petroleum Refiners Association was established in 2013 through the merger of two petroleum associations: Concawe (focusing on health, safety and environmental research in refining and in the supply of petroleum products) and Europia (later FuelsEurope, focusing on government relations).

The association numbers 42 members, including OAO LUKOIL (since 2008). They account for nearly 100% of the EU total refining output. Jointly with the European Commission, the association acts as a co-organizer of the EU Refining Forum.

OAO  LUKOIL and the Non-Profit Organization World Wildlife Fund (WWF) signed a  cooperation agreement today. The document was signed by Gleb Ovsyannikov, Head of OAO LUKOIL’s Public Relations Department,  and Evgeny Shvarts, Director for Conservation Policy of the  Non-Profit Organization World Wildlife  Fund.

The World Wildlife Fund, one of the world’s largest environmental  organizations, unites approximately 5 million permanent supporters and works in  more than 100 countries. The fund’s information-analytical materials are used by  many European financial organizations, among them the European Bank for  Reconstruction and Development.
