PJSC LUKOIL has been successfully operating in the Kingdom of the Netherlands, home to one of the world's largest oil and petroleum product trading hub — the Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Antwerp region.
Today, the Company is one of the leading suppliers of oil and petroleum products to this region. Since April 2005, PJSC LUKOIL's international trading company LITASKO has been operating the STR terminal in the port of Rotterdam.
In September 2009, PJSC LUKOIL acquired a 45 percent stake in the TRN (Total Raﬃnaderij Nederland) oil refinery in Vlissingen in the southwestern Netherlands. On October 1, 2011, the TRN refinery was renamed Zeeland Refinery, after the province it is located in and where most of its employees live. This acquisition was very important as it enabled the vertical integration of Company's business and helped make deliveries more secure.
Since 2012, PJSC LUKOIL has been also developing its operations in the Dutch retail market and expanding its network of gas stations. LUKOIL's gas stations are located in the economically booming regions between Rotterdam and Tiel, along the historical commercial routes leading from the port of Rotterdam to Western and Eastern Europe, as well as in the vicinity of Eindhoven in central Netherlands and in the Limbugr province in the country's south-east.
In 2010 and 2013, PJSC LUKOIL won the prestigious RusPrix award for its contribution to the development of business ties between Russia and the Netherlands.
The Company provides regular support to local charitable, cultural and other socially-oriented initiatives.

LIKOIL successfully completed a deal to acquire the assets of the Dutch Verolma Group in the Lumburg province. They included a retail network of 40 gas stations, a terminal and an office in Maastricht, and 5 car wash complexes.
LUKOIL opened its first gas station in the Netherlands. The opening ceremony in Maastricht was attended by the representatives of the Netherlands’ Senate, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and local authorities, as well as the Governor of the Limburg province and the Russian Ambassador to the Netherlands.
LUKOIL completed a deal to acquire 21 gas stations in the Netherlands which previously operated under the brand of Rotonde. The network consists of 6 regular and 15 fully automated gas stations located between Rotterdam and Tiel. Thanks to this deal the Company not only expanded its marketing network in the Netherlands, but also strengthened its positions in the Dutch wholesale market of petroleum products and lubricants.
The Company completed a deal to acquire 19 gas stations from the major private operator Auto Maas. Located in central and southern Netherlands, the network helped establish a geographical connection between LUKOIL’s gas station networks acquired earlier.
