RAG annually produces around 124,000 tons of paraffinic and asphaltic crude oil from domestic oil fields in Upper and Lower Austria. The oil produced in Lower Austria is transported via pipeline directly to the refinery in Schwechat. The oil produced in Upper Austria is transported via railway tank cars from Kremsmünster/Krift and Ried im Innkreis to the refinery.
The produced crude oil is characterized by good processability and low contamination. Depending on the field, the produced crude oil is either paraffinic or asphaltic and of quality nature comparable to the international trademark brent.
The crude oil is used for the domestic market, and therefore RAG makes an essential contribution to the Austrian security of supply. Furthermore, RAG is interested in the extension of its trading and supplying possibilities.
