Havel & Partners has helped Orlen Unipetrol petrochemical company obtain regulatory clearance from the Slovak Antimonopoly Office for the acquisition of Oliva petrol stations.
According to Havel & Partners, “following this transaction, Orlen Unipetrol will expand its activities in Slovakia, namely by a total of 39 petrol stations, both existing and under construction. The transaction will thus lead to increased competitive pressure on the Slovak fuel retail market.”
Orlen Unipetrol is directly and solely controlled by PKN Orlen. Its main business is crude oil extraction and processing and petrochemical production. The company focuses primarily on crude oil processing and wholesale, petrochemical production and sale, fuel retail sale, and electricity distribution and sale.
