¹ Scope 1 refers to direct emissions from operations that are owned or controlled by the organization (OMV Petrom Group). We use emission factors from different sources, e.g., IPCC, API GHG Compendium, etc. Since 2016 OMV Petrom is applying global warming potentials of the IPCC Fourth Assessment Report (AR4 – 100 year)
² Scope 2 refers to indirect emissions resulted from generation of purchased or acquired electricity, heating, cooling, or steam. We use emission factors from different sources, e.g., national authorities, supplier-specific emission factors, etc. The data in the table refers to the market-based approach.
³ Scope 3 refers to other indirect emissions that occur outside the organization, including both Upstream and Downstream emissions. We use emission factors from different sources, e.g., IPCC, PlasticsEurope, etc. The data includes Scope 3 emissions from the use and processing of sold products. Pure “trading margin” sales as well as intracompany sales are excluded.

Hydrocarbons ventedt16,19526,36842,50639,40531,34848,233

The volumes of flared and vented gas in Upstream are calculated following legal and internal regulations and are based on gas balance. Regular checks are performed and calculated volumes calibrated, if needed. Data may change based on such regular checks outcome and consolidated annually. *Further to the above internal process, in one location having two alternative stacks (one for flaring, one for venting), a quantity of gas was reclassified from flaring to venting.
