PKN Orlen SA (or Polski Koncern Naftowy Orlen SA, Grupa Orlen, PKN Orlen Group) is the largest refiner of crude oil in Central Europe. PKN Orlen is Poland's largest and most internationally recognized company.

PKN Orlen is the largest petroleum retailer in all of Poland with over 2000 stations.

The company also has significant investment abroad with a chain of 500 stations in Germany and a majority stake in UniPetrol, a Czech refiner.

The company has sales worth 4.41 Billion USD annually and a market value of 3.08 USD.





The company was established through the merger of Poland's two communist oil monopolies.

PKN Orlen has its roots in the creation of C.P.N., Communist Poland's petroleum retail monopoly in 1944.

In the 1950's the second block of PKN Orlen was formed, Polski Koncern Naftowy (PKN). PKN was the state firm in charge of refineries in Plock, a city near Warsaw, that grew to become the largest complex of its kind in Poland.

In 1999 both companies were semi-privatized and merged to create a retail and refining company under the name PKN Orlen.



PKN Orlen has been involved in talks with MOL, a Hungarian Oil Company. If merged the two firms would create an international giant, and dominate Central Europe's oil industry. However as of January 2005 the planned merger looks increasingly unlikely because of its high politicalization. PKN under a joint venture with Swiss firm Bassel owns also Poland's largest plastic company.
