The Group

Motor Oil

Motor Oil Group is transforming into a Multi-Energy Leader in Southeastern Europe and is uniquely positioned in the evolving energy landscape.

Motor Oil’s path forward is realized through our 4 different strategic pillars, driving growth and change across a diverse, multi-energy portfolio.

  • Mobility & Retail
  • RES
  • Alternative Fuels & Circular Economy
  • Refining Supply & Trading

It supports the economy with exports to over 75 countries, thousands of employees, and continuous new investments. Motor Oil Group has 92 individual companies and directly employs more than 3,000 permanent workers. More than 1,500 gas stations operate with the emblems of Motor Oil's subsidiary companies, in Greece, as well as in foreign countries. The Group has branches in 8 different countries.

The company plays a leading role in the sectors of crude oil refining and marketing of petroleum products in Greece, as well as the greater eastern Mediterranean region, supplying its customers with a wide range of high-quality products.

It is noted that the Group’s Refinery, located in Ag. Theodoroi in Corinth is the largest purely private industrial complex in Greece and is considered one of the most modern refineries in Europe with a complexity index of 12.61 (Nelson Complexity Index). It has the capacity to process various types of crude oil and manufactures a wide range of oil products. It supplies commercial oil companies in Greece, but the bulk of its production is sold abroad. Moreover, it is the only refinery that produces base oils in Greece. The technical sophistication of the refinery allows Motor Oil to manufacture products with high added value, adjusting the final product mix to market needs, ensuring better distribution prices, and achieving better refining margins than other composite refineries in the Mediterranean.

In the Group level, Motor Oil has a significant presence in trade due to the liquid fuel retail networks of its subsidiaries AVIN OIL and Coral (Shell Licensee). In 2017, Coral entered Cyprus’ retail market through its subsidiary Coral Energy Products Cyprus Limited and in 2018 the Serbian market through its subsidiary Coral SRB d.o.o Beograd. In Coral entered the markets of Croatia and Northern Macedonia.

The Group enjoys a presence in the liquefied gas sector through Coral Gas S.A. The company stores, packages and markets bottled and bulk liquefied gas and liquefied gas for vehicles (autogas). In 2017, the company established a subsidiary in Cyprus intending to expand its activities abroad.

Additionally, the Group has a presence in the power and natural gas market thought its subsidiary NRG TRADING HOUSE ENERGY S.A. NRG offers electricity and natural gas programs, and primarily aims to provide comprehensive services to home and commercial consumers through top-level services that meet all energy needs.  The Group continues to invest in e-mobility developing strategic partnerships and continuously equipping its gas stations with charging points. In fact, 1,000 electric vehicle charging points and installation of fast chargers are already operating. By 2030, the target is to reach 4,000 charging points.

The Group has developed a significant portfolio of renewable energy projects. MORE is an important pillar for the Group's green transition.

MORE operates a modern portfolio of 837 MW installed capacity, 94% of which is wind-based generation units. The Company licensed more than 450 MW of new projects with environmental permits and received final grid connection terms for 287MW.  

Over the next 4 years, it is expected to be constructed 311MW of new operating capacity attributed to MORE in projects that are ready to build or have already secured final grid connection.

Additionally, MORE has already secured Environmental Licenses for 895MW attributed capacity, which is currently considered mature. Finally, we hold production licenses for less mature projects exceeding 1GW capacity.

In the context of energy transition, Motor Oil Group is constantly investing in circular economy and renewable and alternative fuels that will ensure a sustainable future. In the last two years significant investments have been made in these two areas. Indicatively, the joint venture with PPC to produce green hydrogen, the construction, in cooperation with GEK TERNA, of the Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) power plant fueled with natural gas in Komotini.

In the lubricants sector, the Group is represented by its subsidiary, LPC S.A.

To this direction the Group acquired 100% of Thalis E.S., one of the most dynamic representatives in the circular economy sector in Greece. Waste management has a prominent position among the dynamically developing activities of Motor Oil Group.

Developing its strategy for the Energy of the future at a steady pace, Motor Oil Group entered into a Sale-Purchase Agreement for the acquisition of all the shares of the company VERD. Following the acquisition of VERD, Motor Oil Group is paving the way in investing and operating in renewable and alternative fuels sector and circular economy through the utilization of bio-based products, and waste products to produce energy and new, more environmentally friendly fuels.
