The LOTOS Group is one of Central and Eastern Europe’s major and most efficient oil companies and the second largest producer of fuels in Poland. The coastal location of our plants ensures direct access to the sea, resulting in greater flexibility of feedstock supply and reduced costs of logistics in maritime transport.
The LOTOS Group is the only producer in Poland with access to hydrocarbons in Poland’s Exclusive Economic Zone of the Baltic Sea. Other regions where we are engaged in petroleum production include the Norwegian Continental Shelf and Lithuania (onshore). As a vertically-integrated organisation, the LOTOS Group operates based on two reporting segments: Upstream and Downstream.
As at December 31st 2016, the LOTOS Group comprised Grupa LOTOS S.A. as the Parent, and 35 production, trading, and service companies, including:
- 13 direct subsidiaries of Grupa LOTOS,
- 21 indirect subsidiaries of Grupa LOTOS,
- and one foundation.
