“Phasis” - was a mythological river (modern name “Rioni”) that Jason and the Argonauts took to reach the Golden Fleece. It has since been associated with the long-standing cultural and commercial links between Georgia and Western Europe. Inspired by the reforms carried out during last decade in Georgia, the group of independent businessmen, with own capital, decided to study the possibility of construction of a modern oil refinery by 21st. Century technology.
“Phasis Group” is an entity, which cares deeply about the preservation of those links. It aims to bring science, business, and technology under one umbrella in order to solve major problems faced by Southern Caucasus countries, and namely Georgia. The first one is to improve environmental pollution linked to bad quality petrol and other oil-related products; the second is to help Georgia transition from a 100% importer status to that of an exporting country, thus gaining valuable energy independence from its neighboring countries.
A close study of the industry shows that establishments in the crude oil refinery industry experienced volatile conditions over the last five years.
Rising crude oil prices powered revenue growth as refiners have passed costs down the distribution line. Over the last five years, profit has steadily recovered in line with improving demand, while low domestic oil prices further bolstered margins. Going forward, profit
is expected to rise marginally, though it remains below historic levels.
