Mabanaft Representative Office in Poland

Mabanaft has had an office in Warsaw since February 1991. When the Iron Curtain came down for good in 1989/1990, there was suddenly considerable demand for gasoline in Poland. The Polish refineries are unable to meet the steadily burgeoning domestic demand. On top of this, the opening of the CIS States has created additional demand, causing Poland to increasingly serve as a transit country. Mabanaft recognizes the potential of this market, and opens a representative office in Warsaw in February 1991.
