Petrobras Argentina announces that on 03/07/2013 it was notified by the Civil and Commercial Court No. 2 of Bahía Blanca, Buenos Aires, regarding the interdiction of its refinery, located in this city. The company states that it has complied with all requirements of the competent authorities and operates in compliance with the environmental standards.
The company has submitted an appeal to the Court, attaching relevant documentation and is available to the competent authorities so that the Bahia Blanca Refinery returns to normal service as quickly as possible.
Petrobras Argentina is making every effort to mitigate the impact of the measure to ensure supply of products to its customers while waiting for a favorable outcome.
Petrobras reaffirms its commitment to faithful compliance with environmental and operational safety standards, in countries where it operates.
