The world must get ready for a decline in the consumption of conventional fuels, says the Hungarian oil and gas group MOL whose subsidiary is the Slovak company Slovnaft. The group expects the consumption of petrol or diesel to fall by up to 15% over the next fifteen years. Therefore, Bratislava-based refinery Slovnaft wants to focus on the production of petrochemical products. „We will have to be flexible. We will increase the production of the petrochemical products such as polyethylenes and polypropylenes and reduce the production of petrol or diesel,“ the chairman of Slovnaft’s Board of Directors, Oszkar Vilagi, said at the meeting with journalists. MOL Group plans to invest € 4.5 billion in the petrochemical production by 2030. These investments will be placed both in Hungary and Slovakia.
