Rainer Seele, CEO and Chairman of the OMV Executive Board:
“OMV had a successful start to 2017 with very good operational and financial performance.
In Q1/17, the Group generated EUR 805 mn in Operating Results, which were supported by a strong contribution from both Upstream and Downstream. In Upstream, we reached a ten-year-high quarterly production of 335 kboe/d and decreased the production cost further to below USD 9/boe. In Downstream, we captured the benefits of a strong market environment along the entire value chain. The refinery utilization rate reached a high of 96%, and the OMV indicator refining margin remained strong at USD 5.4/bbl. The petrochemical business and Borealis strongly contributed to this favorable result. Free cash flow after dividends marked a record high of EUR 1.3 bn in a USD 54/bbl oil price environment.
OMV continued on its path of value-added growth and signed an agreement to acquire a 24.99% interest in the Yuzhno Russkoye gas field at the beginning of March, 2017. At the same time, OMV signed the sale of its Turkish subsidiary, OMV Petrol Ofisi, to the Vitol Group. On April 24, OMV and four other European energy companies signed financing agreements for the Nord Stream 2 pipeline project.”
