State Azerbaijani company SOCAR bought from Julian and Doina Berescu the remaining 10% stake in SOCAR Petroleum, former Romtranspetrol, 90% of which has been acquired in 2011, and will increase the company’s capital by 35 million euro.

“The transaction is part of our company’s strategic approach to strengthen its market position in Romania,” said the general manager of SOCAR Romania, Hamza Karimov.

SOCAR entered the Romanian market for fuel distribution through the acquisition, in 2011, of 90% stake in Botosani Romtranspetrol, owned by Julian and Doina Berescu.

The company has a network of 22 filling stations in Romania and wants to reach 300 units over several years.
