OMV Petrom SA ("OMV Petrom"), the 51.01% subsidiary of OMV Aktiengesellschaft
and OMV Petrom Marketing SRL (100% subsidiary of OMV Petrom), were informed
today by the Romanian Competition Council about the result of the antitrust
investigation regarding the withdrawal of the retail product Eco Premium
(unleaded gasoline pre-mixed with lead substitute) from the Romanian fuels
market. The authority has imposed a fine of RON 366,530,965 (EUR 85.2 mn) on OMV
Petrom. The fine applicable to OMV Petrom Marketing SRL amounts to RON
137,288,031 (EUR 31.9 mn).

OMV Petrom and OMV Petrom Marketing SRL are of the opinion that the fines
imposed are not justified, and both companies will challenge the Competition
Council´s decision in the courts.
