Shandong plant fuelling up capacity, says Petronas
KUALA LUMPUR: Petronas Lubricants International has expanded its lubricant-blending plant in the Weifang Economic Development Zone in Shandong, China, to meet the growing demand for premium lubricant products and high-quality services.
The expansion project, which was carried out in phases, saw the upgrading of the plant’s production capacity, production lines and storage facilities, boosting the company’s ability to serve the booming Chinese market.
Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas) president and group chief executive officer Datuk Wan Zulkiflee Wan Ariffin said the second phase expansion at its Shandong plant added muchneeded production capacity that would help meet the soaring demand for its products.

“This strategic expansion of our footprint in China reflects the great importance we attach to our local customers, here, as well as our confidence in Petronas’s prospects for future growth in the Chinese market,” he said in a statement.
