HISTORY OF THE DOCUMENT
In 1906 the company was founded by the Banco Ricchini of Genoa, for the extraction, refining and trading of oil, from the merger of two French companies: the Société Française des Petroles and the Société Petroles de Montechino. In the early years, all the refineries in the area of Fiorenzuola d'Arda, in the province of Piacenza, were acquired by the company. In the early 1940s, the company contributed to the creation of Metangas, which had obtained some permits to search for methane in Polesine. During World War II, many plants were destroyed, and in the following years many were replaced and modernized. During the same period, the entire company's activity was reviewed and improved. In 1958, despite the efforts of the company's management, the company was admitted to the composition procedure.
