原标题:希腊石油公司第二季度核心利润下降52%

    据能源世界网8月28日雅典报道,周四,希腊最大的炼油商希腊石油公司(Hellenic Petroleum)公布第二季度核心利润下降52%,由于新冠疫情导致炼油利润率下降,燃料需求减少。

    根据石油库存进行调整后,4 – 6月税息折旧及摊销前利润(EBITDA)为6300万欧元(合7,430万美元),低于去年同期的1.3亿欧元。

    Hellenic表示,为遏制新型冠状病毒的传播,全球对旅行的限制导致希腊机场的客运量大幅下降,抑制了国内对燃料的需求。

    该炼油厂将从8月28日起逐步关闭其日产14.8万桶的Aspropyrgos炼油厂进行维护。其补充道,预算为1.3亿欧元的维修周转需要9周时间,预计将减少50%的颗粒物排放。

    希腊天然气公司正在出售其35%的国有天然气分销公司DEPA基础设施股份。周四,该公司表示,预计入围投资者将于明年1月对该资产提交具有约束力的报价。

    Hellenic Petroleum Q2 core profit falls as COVID-19 hits margins, demand

    Greece's biggest oil refiner Hellenic Petroleum on Thursday posted a 52% drop in second-quarter core profit as the COVID-19 pandemic led to lower refining margins and reduced demand for fuel.

    Adjusted for oil inventories, earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) were 63 million euros ($74.3 million) in the April to June period, down from 130 million euros a year before.

    Global travel restrictions to stem the spread of the novel coronavirus have led to a significant drop in passenger traffic at Greek airports, curbing domestic demand for fuel, Hellenic said.

    The refinery will gradually shut down its 148,000 barrel per day (bpd) Aspropyrgos refinery for maintenance from Aug. 28. The turnaround, budgeted at 130 million euros, will take nine weeks and is expected to cut particulate emissions by 50%, it added.

    Hellenic is selling its 35% stake in state-controlled gas distribution utility, DEPA Infrastructure. On Thursday, it said shortlisted investors were expected to submit binding bids for the asset in January.
