The article deals with the improvements in the adjusted operating income of Repsol in the fourth quarter of 2006. High olefins prices and low naphtha production have increased its adjusted operating income by 78 percent to €89 million. The author states that the higher income in 2006, compared with the same period in 2005, was affected by the increased margins in global base petrochemicals and derivatives in Latin America.
