The Unipetrol Group processes crude oil in the Kralupy and Litvinov refineries. The feedstock is received chiefly through the southern section of the Druzhba pipeline (Litvinov) and TAL and IKL pipelines (Kralupy). The Litvinov refinery may also receive supplies from TAL and IKL pipelines. As at the end of 2013, the Unipetrol Group’s annual production capacity was 4.5m tonnes. Following the increase in Unipetrol's equity interest in Česká Rafinérská a.s. under the agreement executed with Shell in November 2014, the Unipetrol Group's annual production capacity will rise to 5.9m tonnes as of Q1 2014. The lower crude oil throughput recorded in 2013 was chiefly attributable to a regular maintenance shutdown at the Kralupy refinery.
