Marketing of refined products: 2016 key facts
In 2016, sales of refined products (33.41 mmtonnes) were down by 1.83 mmtonnes or by 5.2% from 2015, mainly due to the assets disposals in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, finalized in July 2015 as well as in Slovenia and Hungary in the second half of 2016.
Retail sales in Italy: 2016 key facts
In 2016, retail sales in Italy were 5.93 mmtonnes, with a slight decrease compared to 2015 (about 30 ktonnes from 2015 or 0.5%) due to a reduction in volumes marketed in Eni’s highway segment, partially offset by a slight increase in volumes marketed in Eni’s owned stations. Average gasoline and gasoil throughputs (1,551 kliters) decreased by approximately 20 kliters from 2015. Eni’s 2016 retail market share was 24.3% down by 0.2 percentage points from 2015 (24.5%). As of December 31, 2016, Eni’s retail network in Italy consisted of 4,396 service stations, lower by 24 units from December 31, 2015 (4,420 service stations), resulting from the release of low throughput stations (27 units), offset by positive balance of acquisitions/releases of lease concessions (3 units).
Retail sales in the Rest of Europe: 2016 key facts
Retail sales in the Rest of Europe were approximately 2.66 mmtonnes, recorded a slight reduction from 2015 (down by 9.2%). This result reflected mainly the asset disposals in the Czech Republic and Slovakia finalized in July 2015 as well as in Slovenia and Hungary in the second half of 2016. These negatives were partially offset by higher volumes traded in France, Austria and Germany. On a homogeneous basis, when excluding the impact of the asset disposal in Eastern Europe, sales slightly increased by 1%. At December 31, 2016, Eni’s retail network in the Rest of Europe consisted of 1,226 units, decreasing by 200 units from December 31, 2015, due to the service stations disposal above mentioned. Average throughput (2,340 kliters) increased by 68 kliters compared to 2015 (2,272 kliters).
Wholesale and other sales: 2016 key facts
Wholesale sales in Italy amounted to 8.16 mmtonnes, up by approximately 0.32 mmtonnes or 4.1% from the previous year, mainly due to higher volumes marketed of jet fuel, gasoil and fuel oil partly offset by lower sales of bunkering. Wholesale sales in the Rest of Europe were 3.18 mmtonnes, down by 17% from 2015, net of the above-mentioned asset disposals. On a homogeneous basis, sales are barely unchanged from 2015. Supplies of feedstock to the petrochemical industry (1.02 mmtonnes) decreased by 12.8%. Other sales in Italy and outside Italy (12.03 mmtonnes) decreased by approximately 1.05 mmtonnes or 8%, mainly due to lower sales volumes to oil companies.
