Lubricant World - - PANORAMA WORLDWIDE -

Cepsa has re­newed its agree­ment with Exxon­Mo­bil for the man­u­fac­ture, dis­tri­bu­tion and sup­ply of Mo­bil- brand marine lu­bri­cants in more than 130 ports in Spain, Por­tu­gal and Gi­bral­tar. Cepsa pro­duces Mo­bilGard ™ lu­bri­cants at its plant in San Roque ( Cadiz). The com­pany serves as an of­fi­cial dis­trib­u­tor in the Ibe­rian mar­ket for a va­ri­ety of marine ves­sels, in­clud­ing ocean- go­ing ves­sels, coastal nav­i­ga­tion ves­sels, mer­chant ships, fish­ing and recre­ational ves­sels. Cepsa sells more than 90 prod­ucts within the Mo­bil lu­bri­cants range and sup­plies nearly a thou­sand marine ves­sels an­nu­ally.

Exxon­Mo­bil's marine lu­bri­cants of­fer a com­plete range of high- qual­ity prod­ucts that help pro­tect en­gines and equip­ment, as well as en­hanc­ing and en­abling ef­fi­cient op­er­a­tions.

At the sign­ing of the agree­ment re­newal, Pamela Skaufel, Exxon­Mo­bil's Di­rec­tor of Avi­a­tion and Marine Lu­bri­cants, noted: “For more than 100 years, Exxon­Mo­bil has pro­vided ship own­ers and op­er­a­tors with ad­vanced lu­bri­cants, bestin- class fu­els and in­dus­try lead­ing ser­vices. The re­cent ex­ten­sion of our agree­ment with Cepsa is a clear com­mit­ment to en­sur­ing our cus­tomers re­ceive the best pos­si­ble ser­vice in Ibe­ria”.

On Cepsa's side, Ni­urka San­cho, Di­rec­tor of the Lu­bri­cants, Base Oils & Paraf­fin Waxes busi­ness, stated: “The re­la­tion­ship that we have main­tained with Exxon­Mo­bil over more than four decades has been pos­si­ble thanks to our com­mon com­mit­ment to in­no­va­tion and con­tin­u­ous im­prove­ment. We con­tin­u­ally strive to of­fer more ef­fi­cient and safe prod­ucts that meet the needs of a mar­ket as de­mand­ing and chang­ing as the marine in­dus­try.”

Over four decades of suc­cess

The re­la­tion­ship be­tween Exxon­Mo­bil and Cepsa be­gan in 1973 with the cre­ation of a lu­bri­cant pro­duc­tion plant near Cepsa fa­cil­i­ties at San Roque.

Cepsa has been an of­fi­cial dis­trib­u­tor of the Exxon­Mo­bil range of marine lu­bri­cants in Spain since the plant was put into pro­duc­tion in 1976. Both com­pa­nies later agreed to ex­tend their agree­ment to in­clude dis­tri­bu­tion and sup­ply to the ports of Gi­bral­tar ( 1997) and Por­tu­gal ( 2008).

In Spain, the re­la­tion­ship be­tween Exxon­Mo­bil and Cepsa has con­trib­uted to achiev­ing a lead­er­ship po­si­tion in the marine lu­bri­cant mar­ket.
