BMI View: Romania's petrochemicals industry is finally seeing an improvement in performance following years of decline. Oltchim slashed losses and boosted profit in 2015, providing the basis for privatisation, possibly including the Arpechim refinery on which it depended for feedstock. Refinery integration and capital investment following privatisation could significantly boost Romanian petrochemicals output.

Weaker oil prices have helped Romania's downstream sectors, with refining margins improving as a result and thereby reversing the situation of regular quarterly losses. This is helping drive down the cost of naphtha feedstock used in the Romanian petrochemicals industry, reviving the fortunes of the sector. Romania's rubber and plastics output notched up an impressive performance in 2015, with growth of 8.7% y-o-y. However, chemicals output declined 5.0%. The growth in polymers has been supported by a recovery in volumes of troubled Romanian producer Oltchim. The company registered a preliminary net profit of RON2.3bn, due to the cancellation of debts, following losses of RON459mn in 2014. Oltchim's preliminary turnover grew by 18% to RON742mn in 2015, from RON628mn in 2014.
