Hatina leaves Slovnaft

Slavomir Hatina, head of the Slovnaft refinery, has announced he is stepping down in favour of Slovnaft VP for strategy Vratko Kaššovic. Officials from the firm would not comment on whether the decision was related to Slovnaft’s recent failure to win a tender for pipeline operator Transpetrol.
