Nynas reports second quarter 2016

In the second quarter, sales volumes for naphthenic specialty oils and bitumen increased with 4 percent compared to last year. Net sales for the second quarter were SEK 3,318 million (4,907) as a consequence of primarily lower oil price levels and a weaker British pound. The majority of our activities focused on the Harburg refinery conversion project.

"A project such as the Harburg conversion always comes with a number of risks. During the first half of the year we discovered some unforeseen challenges and we could not complete the work for a start-up in time for the summer bitumen season, leading also to some supply shortages for individual specialty oil products. However, the distillation unit in Harburg is now up and running since the first week of August and we expect product supply to gradually normalise," commented Gert Wendroth, President and CEO of Nynas AB.

SECOND QUARTER SUMMARY

  • Net sales decreased to SEK 3,318 million (4,907), as a consequence of lower crude oil prices and a weaker British pound.
