Production and sales

Production

Neste Oil’s production totaled 16.3 million tons (15.4 million) in 2013, of which 2.0 million tons (1.8 million) took the form of NExBTL renewable diesel. The increase from 2012 reflected both higher output at the Porvoo refinery and higher renewable diesel volumes at the Singapore and Rotterdam refineries.

The Porvoo refinery operated at an average capacity utilization rate of 88% (87%) in 2013, reflecting the maintenance outage at production line 4 during the second quarter of the year. The Naantali refinery ran at a lower rate of 78% (67%) on average to optimize the refining margin.

The proportion of Russian Export Blend (REB) in Neste Oil’s total refinery input at Porvoo and Naantali averaged 63% (63%) for the year as a whole. Production costs at the Porvoo and Naantali refineries totaled USD 4.8/bbl (4.4) for the year.

Neste Oil’s renewable diesel facilities achieved an average capacity utilization of 91% (85%) in 2013.

Sales

Total sales volumes in 2013 were higher than in 2012, mainly due to increased sales volumes of NExBTL renewable diesel, while motor gasoline and diesel sales were slightly lower. Sales to Europe and North America, in particular, increased, reducing the share of domestic sales.
