Convocation of the Extraordinary General Meeting

of OMV Aktiengesellschaft on Friday, 10 September 2021 at 10:00 am CEST (local
time Vienna) at the Employee Restaurant of OMV Aktiengesellschaft,
Trabrennstraße 6-8, 1020 Vienna, Austria (U2-station Krieau), as requested by
the shareholder Österreichische Beteiligungs AG with corporate seat in Vienna
pursuant to Section 105 para 3 Stock Corporation Act ("AktG").

Holding as a virtual General Meeting without physical presence of the
shareholders

In light of the global COVID-19 pandemic, the Executive Board has decided, in
order to protect our shareholders and other participants, to hold the General
Meeting without physical presence of shareholders. In view of the current
circumstances and after careful consideration by the Executive Board, holding
the General Meeting in virtual form is necessary for the welfare and in the best
interests of both the Company and its shareholders.

The General Meeting on 10 September 2021 will therefore be held as a "virtual
General Meeting" within the meaning of the Corporate COVID-19 Act
(Gesellschaftsrechtliches COVID-19-Gesetz; "COVID-19-GesG"), as amended, and the
Regulation of the Federal Minister of Justice based thereon
(Gesellschaftsrechtliche COVID-19-Verordnung; "Corporate COVID-19 Regulation" or
"COVID-19-GesV"), as amended.

Holding the General Meeting as a virtual General Meeting in accordance with the
COVID-19-GesV leads to modifications in the meeting's usual procedure and in the
exercise of shareholders' rights. In particular, this means that shareholders
will not be able to participate physically in the meeting, but will have the
opportunity to follow the General Meeting visually and acoustically in real time
via the internet.

In accordance with Section 3 para 4 COVID-19-GesV, the only way to cast votes as
well as to exercise the right to submit motions and the right to raise
objections is to grant power of attorney and give instructions to one of the
independent special proxy holders proposed by the Company.

The shareholders' information right can be exercised by each shareholder
himself/herself during the virtual General Meeting. Questions are to be sent
exclusively by electronic communication in text form to the following e-mail
address: fragen.omv@hauptversammlung.at. It is noted that pursuant to Section
118 para 1 AktG shareholders are only to be provided with information on matters
of the company to the extent that such information is necessary for the proper
assessment of an item of the agenda. If no request pursuant to Section 109 AktG
(request for additional agenda items) is made, requests for information from
shareholders pursuant to Section 118 para 1 AktG are therefore only admissible
to the extent that the information is necessary for the proper assessment of the
agenda item "Election of a member to the Supervisory Board".

The entire General Meeting will be publicly transmitted in real time on the
internet in accordance with Section 3 para 4 COVID-19-GesV in conjunction with
Section 102 para 4 AktG. This is permissible pursuant to the data protection law
in light of the legal basis of Section 3 para 4 COVID-19-GesV and Section 102
para 4 AktG.

Our shareholders will be able to follow the General Meeting in real time on 10
September 2021 from approximately 10 a.m. onwards on the internet under a link
provided at www.omv.com/general-meeting, using appropriate technical means. No
registration or login is required to follow the General Meeting on the internet.

The transmission of the General Meeting in real time gives our shareholders the
opportunity to participate in the meeting from any location via a one-way
acoustic and optical connection in real time and follow the entire course of the
General Meeting (including the general debate and the answering of shareholders'
questions as well as the adoption of resolutions) and to react to developments
in the General Meeting. However, the live-transmission of the General Meeting on
the internet is not a two-way connection and does not allow remote participation
within the meaning of Section 102 para 3 no 2 AktG or remote voting within the
meaning of Section 102 para 3 no 3 AktG in conjunction with Section 126 AktG.

In addition, please note that the Company is only responsible for the use of
technical means of communication to the extent that these are attributable to
its sphere.

Furthermore, reference is made to the "Information on the organizational and
technical requirements for participation in EGM 2021" which is made available by
20 August 2021, at the latest, at www.omv.com/general-meeting. We kindly ask our
shareholders to pay special attention to this information and to the
participation requirements and conditions described therein.

Representation of shareholders at the General Meeting by special proxy holders

Each shareholder who is entitled to participate in the virtual General Meeting
has the right to appoint a representative who attends the virtual General
Meeting in accordance with the COVID-19-GesV on behalf of the shareholder and
exercises the rights of the shareholder represented. In principle, shareholders
are not restricted in terms of the number of persons they appoint to represent
them and their choice of representatives.

In accordance with Section 3 para 4 COVID-19-GesV, the right to submit motions
for resolutions, to cast votes as well as to raise objections at the virtual
General Meeting can, however, only be exercised by one of the following special
proxy holders.

Any shareholder who is entitled to participate in the virtual General Meeting
and has provided evidence of this fact to the Company in accordance with the
specifications in this convocation to the General Meeting is entitled to appoint
one of the following special proxy holders:


* Mr. Ewald Oberhammer, Attorney at Law

c/o Oberhammer Rechtsanwälte GmbH
1010 Vienna, Karlsplatz 3/1
oberhammer.omv@hauptversammlung.at


* Mr. Florian Beckermann

c/o Interessenverband für Anleger, IVA
1130 Vienna, Feldmühlgasse 22
beckermann.omv@hauptversammlung.at


* Mr. Christoph Moser, Attorney at Law

c/o Schönherr Rechtsanwälte GmbH
1010 Vienna, Schottenring 19
moser.omv@hauptversammlung.at


* Mr. Christoph Nauer, Attorney at Law

c/o bpv Hügel Rechtsanwälte GmbH
1220 Vienna, ARES-Tower, Donau-City-Strasse 11
nauer.omv@hauptversammlung.at

Each shareholder can freely choose between the above-mentioned persons as
special proxy holder and grant this person power of attorney. The Company bears
the costs of these special proxy holders. All other costs, in particular the
shareholder's own bank charges for the deposit confirmation or mailing expenses
shall be borne by the shareholder.

We recommend that our shareholders always use the special forms for granting or
revoking a power of attorney available at www.omv.com/general-meeting from 20
August 2021 at the latest, to grant power of attorney to a special proxy holder
or to revoke such power of attorney. The special proxy holders can be reached
directly at the contact details given above. If specific instructions are to be
given, the direct communication should be made in timely manner.

In order to verify their identity, we ask our shareholders to indicate in the
respective field in the form for the granting of power of attorney the e-mail
address which will also be used for submitting instructions to the special proxy
holder (instructions, motions or objections) or for submitting questions and
statements to the Company. In addition, the bearer data stated in the deposit
confirmation should match the data on the power of attorney (otherwise, the
power of attorney may not be deemed valid).

In the event another person (other than one of the special proxy holders
mentioned above) is granted power of attorney, please note that it must be
ensured by an effective chain of authorization (sub-power of attorney) that one
of the special proxy holders is authorized to exercise the right to vote, the
right to submit motions and the right to raise objections. It is not possible to
authorize another person to exercise these rights in the virtual General
Meeting.

A shareholder may grant power of attorney to the bank where he/she has deposited
his/her shares subject to the agreement with that bank. In such case, in
addition to the deposit confirmation, it is sufficient for the bank to provide
the Company with a declaration by one of the permitted means (see above under
transmission of deposit confirmations) that it has been granted a power of
attorney; the power of attorney itself does not have to be sent to the Company
in this case. If the bank was granted power of attorney by a shareholder, the
bank must also use one of the special proxy holders proposed by the Company for
the submission of motions for resolutions, the casting of votes and the raising
of an objection at the General Meeting.

Submission of the power of attorney to the Company

Completed and signed forms for the granting and revocation of powers of attorney
may only be submitted to the Company in text form, if possible until 9 September
2021, 4:00 p.m. CEST (Vienna local time), by one of the following means:


* by mail, courier service or in person:

OMV Aktiengesellschaft, c/o HV-Veranstaltungsservice GmbH, 8242 St. Lorenzen/
Wechsel, Köppel 60, Austria;


* per e-mail:

for Mr. Oberhammer: oberhammer.omv@hauptversammlung.at
for Mr. Moser: moser.omv@hauptversammlung.at
for Mr. Beckermann: beckermann.omv@hauptversammlung.at
for Mr. Nauer: nauer.omv@hauptversammlung.at

whereby the power of attorney must be attached to the e-mail in text form, for
example as PDF or TIF; by this way of transmission, the special proxy holder
chosen by you has direct access to the power of attorney.
please submit powers of attorney issued to persons other than the abovementioned
special proxy holders, in the form described, to
anmeldung.omv@hauptversammlung.at;


* per fax: +43 1 8900 500 56;

* per SWIFT: GIBAATWGGMS - Message Type MT598 or MT599; please indicate ISIN
AT0000743059 in the text.


A power of attorney (or a revocation) may be revoked by the shareholder. The
revocation becomes effective upon receipt by the Company.

A power of attorney may not be submitted in person at the meeting site.

Shareholders' rights pursuant to Sections 109, 110, 118 and 119 Stock
Corporation Act

Shareholders whose individual or combined holdings represent a total of at least
5 % of the capital stock and who have held these shares for at least three
months may require in writing the inclusion and announcement of additional
General Meeting agenda items by 22 August 2021 (receipt). A draft resolution and
justification thereof must be submitted for each additional agenda item.

Shareholders whose individual or combined holdings represent a total of at least
1 % of the capital stock may submit draft resolutions in text form for each
agenda item, to be accompanied by a justification, by 1 September 2021, and
request the draft resolutions together with the names of the relevant
shareholders and the justification to be attached as well as a possible
statement of the Executive Board or the Supervisory Board to be posted on the
Company's website registered in the corporate register.

For elections to the Supervisory Board (agenda item 1) the following must be
noted: In case of a proposal for the election of a member of the Supervisory
Board, the statement pursuant to Section 87 para 2 AktG of a nominated person
replaces the justification. Such statements also have to be received by the
Company by 1 September 2021. Proposals for the election of Supervisory Board
members, including the mentioned statements, must be published by the Company on
its website (as registered with the corporate register) by 3 September 2021, at
the latest; otherwise, the nominated person cannot be included in the election.
Regarding the election of members of the Supervisory Board, the General Meeting
shall take into consideration the criteria of Section 87 para 2a AktG; in
particular the professional and personal qualifications of the members of the
Supervisory Board, a balanced composition of expertise of the Supervisory Board,
aspects of diversity and internationality as well as the professional
reliability.

Regarding proposals for the election of Supervisory Board members it is further
declared that the Company is subject to Section 86 para 7 AktG. In accordance
with Section 86 para 9 AktG, no objection against the joint fulfillment was
raised. Therefore, the minimum quota of 30 % women and of 30% men has to be
fulfilled by the capital and employee representatives in the Supervisory Board
jointly. After the Annual General Meeting on 2 June 2021, the Supervisory Board
was composed of fifteen members (ten capital representatives and five employee
representatives). Due to the subsequent resignation of Mr. Thomas Schmid as a
member of the Supervisory Board of the Company, the Supervisory Board of the
Company is currently composed of nine capital representatives (four women and
five men) and five employee representatives (two women and three men).
Therefore, one Supervisory Board member must be elected at this Extraordinary
General Meeting so that the Supervisory Board is again composed of ten capital
representatives. Due to the overall fulfilment of the gender quota on the
Supervisory Board of the Company, at least five seats on the Supervisory Board
must be occupied by women and at least five seats on the Supervisory Board must
be occupied by men in order to fulfil the minimum quota requirement according to
Section 86 para 7 AktG. Currently, six women and eight men hold seats on the
Company's Supervisory Board. Therefore, with respect to the election of a single
member of the Supervisory Board there are currently no gender-specific
restrictions with regard to the minimum quota requirement.

Each shareholder has the right to propose motions at the General Meeting for
each agenda item through his or her authorized special proxy holder.
Prerequisite thereof is evidence of the entitlement of the shareholder to
participate in the General Meeting and the granting of a corresponding power of
attorney to a special proxy holder. For a shareholder to propose the election of
a member to the Supervisory Board, the timely submission of an election proposal
