* The actual refining margins realized by OMV Petrom may vary from the indicator refining margin due to different crude slate, product yield and operating conditions

 

 

We expect the Upstream Clean Operating Results in Q4/17 to be negatively impacted by around RON 220 mn exploration expenses, largely consisting of write-offs of exploration assets.

In connection with the Collective Labor Agreement negotiations successfully finalized in December 2017, a one-time cost impact of around RON 90 mn is reflected in the Q4/17 result at Group level.
