The revenues had been decreased from Euro 4996.3 million in Q3, 2022 to Euro 5,149.3 million in Q3, 2021. The subside in revenues was driven primarily by lower volumes, increase in crude oil prices, which has meant higher feedstock prices across the group during Q3, 2022 as compared to Q3, 2021. Energy prices were also notably higher, especially in Europe during Q3, 2022 when compared with the same quarter in 2021.
