In recent years, PVOIL have been always met and beaten business targets assigned by the Vietnam National Oil & Gas Group. In 2020, PVOIL had to operate in the extremely difficult conditions due to the double impacts from the Covid-19 pandemic and the decline in oil prices.
In disadvantaged conditions, PVOIL has beaten the targets on crude oil production output, sale, petroleum trading, and payment to the State budget. In particular, sales through retail channels at PVOIL's petroleum retail network remained stable, equivalent to 2019 achievements.
Sales volume through PVOIL Easy, a non-cash payment platform, continued to grow rapidly. The sale was estimated at 65,000 cubic meters in 2020. Averagely, the channel sold 5,416 cu.m each month, equivalent to the output of 51 petroleum stations.
The linkage with the largest electronic payment applications in Vietnam continues to be expanded, increasing convenience for customers. PVOIL Mobile, tank truck service to supply petroleum to customers’ place, continues to grow and prove its efficiency in the way of providing petroleum to customers.
In the coming period, with the opportunities and challenges determined, PVOIL has set five development orientations and solutions, including: Actively coordinating with other units in the sector to build production chain from processing, transporting and distributing petroleum products to optimize the overall efficiency of the Group.
PVOIL continues expanding the network of petroleum stations to improve business efficiency and create a land fund to facilitate conversion to other business areas when the demand for petroleum decreases.
Focus on developing non-petroleum business activities at petroleum stations (convenience stores, car wash, car repair, cafes, electric vehicle charging stations ...), following the current business model applied in advanced countries.
Deploying the application of 4.0 technology to diversify business activities to improve competitiveness. Implementing drastically and effectively the Restructuring Plan to enhance competitiveness, optimize the use of all resources, and improve operational efficiency.
At the meeting, PVOIL's leaders made a number of recommendations to the PetroVietnam leaders, with the expectation to have the Group's support in seeking authorities’ support to resolve some difficulties PVOIL is facing in business activities, investment and equalization settlement.
Speaking at the meeting, Mr. Hoang Quoc Vuong - Secretary of Party Committee, and Chairman of Board of Members of PetroVietnam, acknowledged and highly appreciated the efforts of PVOIL's leaders and employees in 2020 and the previous years.
