Rainer Seele, CEO of OMV:
“In a challenging market environment, in Q2/16 OMV delivered a strong cash flow from operating activities exceeding €1 billion and a positive free cash flow after dividends. However, decreased oil and gas prices and lower refining margins have impacted the results of OMV Group. Clean CCS EBIT dropped by 43% and clean CCS net income attributable to stockholders decreased by 39%. In line with our strategy to optimise the Upstream portfolio, we are divesting a 30% stake in the Rosebank field in the UK. This sale reduces OMV’s related future investment commitments. In addition, we continue to focus on cash and costs. The cost reduction programme that started this year aimed for a reduction of €100 million in 2017, but we expect to reach this goal already in 2016. Thus, we have set a new cost reduction target of more than €150 million in 2017 versus 2015. We have also continued with our rigorous CAPEX discipline and thus reduced our CAPEX guidance to €2.2 billion in 2016. This is lower than the initially announced target of €2.4 billion.”
