In 2011, the Czech refinery plants of ORLEN Group (Litvinov, Kralupy and Paramo) processed in total over 3.9 million tonnes of crude oil (REBCO and Brent). Reduced throughput resulted from conducting the scheduled overhaul downtime at Litvinov after four years of operations. Whereas downtimes in the refinery in Paramo during 2011 were caused by a difficult market situation.
