The NIS refining complex in Serbia has two refineries in Pančevo and Novi Sad. They have a combined maximum annual capacity of 7.3 million tonnes of crude oil. In 2015, the NIS complex refined 2.93 million tonnes of crude oil.
The plant’s current capacity enables it to meet all local demand within the Serbian market, but also to export fuels to Balkan countries. NIS exports motor fuels, benzene, toluene, road and construction bitumen to the EU, Croatia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Modernisation of NIS refining capacity in Pančevoinvolved the commissioning of a mild hydrocracking/diesel hydrotreatment (MHC/DHT) facility in November 2012. This facility enabled the refinery’s transition to producing Euro 5 high octane petrol and diesel.
Planned repairs of the main technical units were completed in 2014.
