The petroleum market is now rebounding, a trend reflected by rising sales figures in May, Motor Oil’s deputy chief executive Petros Tzannetakis has told analysts during a virtual conference.
The official, responding to a related question, expressed cautious optimism for the petroleum sector’s performance this coming summer.
“Greece’s successful management of the pandemic can attract tourists. The borders have been opened and, at the same time, demand for gasoline is rising. I am cautiously optimistic,” Tzannetakis said.
It is currently not possible to make predictions on aviation fuel demand, he noted.
Motor Oil proved to be durable and resilient amid the pandemic’s unprecedented demand and price collapse for petroleum products, the deputy chief noted. The corporate group’s major debt reduction and high-level liquidity played a key role, he pointed out.
Record sales figures in preceding years contributed to the corporate group’s resilience during the lockdown period, he explained.
