Report on business operation

2020 is a very difficult year for all businesses in general and Vietnam National Petroleum Group in particular. The Group’s operations were affected by a number of unfavorable factors such as: The global Covid-19 pandemic and the geopolitical factors in Middle East caused unusual and different changes in the world oil price ; the world petroleum industry faced difficulties and losses, resulted in the close of many oilfields and petroleum refineries and the bankruptcy of oil exploration companies; the world’s major petroleum corporations recorded great losses; the supply of petroleum from regional markets and domestic refineries is not stable, especially the domestic oil refineries which could not ensure the supply source in schedule and contract in several times, causing remarkable effects on forecasting and building the Group’s business plans; the year 2020 also witnessed heavy natural disasters and floods in the Central Region, leaving serious consequences in the provinces from Nghe An to Quang Ngai.

The above-mentioned unfavorable factors had major impact on the Group’s operations in 2020. However, with the drastic direction of the Board of Management, the flexible solutions of the Board of General Directors, the outstanding efforts of member units and the collective strength of all employees in implementing the “dual goal” which is preventing pandemic safely in parallel with maintaining production activities effectively, Petrolimex has overcome a difficult and challenging year and achieved encouraging business results.
