Vacuum Distillation-2 (AV-2) plant of the Danube refinery in Szazhalombatta in the early hours of 14 June.

The staff and the experts of the plant’s fire brigade extinguished the flames within a short time, and no personal injuries or environmental damage occurred. The plant is reportedly down but is expected to resume normal operations in less than two weeks.

According to their information, the plant’s outage could temporarily reduce MOL’s oil processing capacity by about 8,000 tons per day.

The Danube Refinery started its operation in 1965 and is one of the largest refineries in the Central and Eastern European region.

The company has launched an investigation into the incident.
