•  Rafo’s first two distillation units had a capacity of only 1.5 Mtpa each and were used to process Romanian domestic crude.  A third and much larger tower (3 Mtpa) was subsequently added.

•  The latter CDU is now the only distillation unit in operation.  Under RAFO’s modernisation scheme, it will process 2.6 Mtpa of imported URALS crude.

•  All of the major inland refineries in Romania are supplied with crude from the deep-sea terminal at Constanta, on the Black Sea.

•  Several pipelines start from Constanta to Baragan.  In turn, a 50 cm diameter pipeline supplies Onesti refinery from Baragan.  This latter pipeline has more than enough pumping capacity for RAFO to run at 2.6 Mtpa.
