OMV Petrom May Book $100 Million More Cost on Gas Law, ZF Says
Romania’s parliament approved two laws yesterday that ban natural-gas exports and create a consumption basket, which may prompt OMV Petrom SA (SNP) to book additional costs of $100 million, Ziarul Financiar reported.
Petrom, Romania’s biggest oil company, will have to drop the use of domestic gas at its Brazi gas-fired plant and include more expensive import gas in its consumption basket, which may boost costs at the plant, the Bucharest-based based newspaper said, citing its own calculations based on data from the country’s energy regulator.
