1984

On March 6, 1984, EKO ELEPEX (a holding company) buys the shares of the ESSO PAPPAS Group of Companies at a low price on behalf of the Greek State, thus ensuring the smooth continuation of all its business activities.

ESSO is renamed EKO, it falls under the Public Petroleum Corporation S.A. (DEP) and now operates as a company of the broader public sector. This is followed by the country’s continuous upward trend in the petroleum and petrochemical market.
