OKTA was founded in 1982 and is currently a major refinery in the Balkan area playing a key role in the energy supply of the region. It is part of one of the biggest groups for the refining, distribution, and trade of crude oil, oil derivatives and petrochemicals – the Hellenic Petroleum group.
OKTA has been central to PCFV efforts in Southeast Europe (SEE). Okta partnered with the REC Country Office FYR Macedonia to phase out leaded petrol and transition to 10 ppm sulphur in the country in 2009, as part of a PCFV national project spanning 2007-2009. Ice then helped to get the Serbian and Bosnian refineries on board for a PCFV-supported SEE sub regional effort to eliminate lead and lower sulphur, spanning 2009-2011, and resulting in both countries phasing out in 2010/2011.
The role of the African Refiners Association is to give a voice to African refiners. ARAs principal aims and objectives are: To Address economic environmental and social issues deemed by its membership to impact upon oil refining in Africa, or upon the importing of petroleum products into Africa; to address issues within the international oil industry which impact on the African oil industry; to promote the exchange of positive experiences between Members, as well as improve their technical and economic performance ; to improve communication and cooperation between its Members and the international oil market. In order to achieve this, ARA cooperates with the relevant industry groups, governments, regulatory bodies, international agencies, academic institutions and non-governmental organisations.
