Lubricant World - - PANORAMA WORLDWIDE -

Op­er­at­ing com­pany Gazprom­neft Ma­rine Lu­bri­cants has be­gun pro­duc­ing high-tech ma­rine oils at a pro­duc­tion fa­cil­ity in Sin­ga­pore. Lo­cal­is­ing lu­bri­cants pro­duc­tion un­der the Gazprom­neft Ocean brand at the AP Oil part­ner fa­cil­ity will cut de­liv­ery times for Gazprom Neft prod­ucts to the Port of Sin­ga­pore by up to two days, and to ports in Malaysia by up to 4 days.

The blend­ing plant in Sin­ga­pore is fa­cil­i­tat­ing the pro­duc­tion of ma­rine lu­bri­cants whose orig­i­nal for­mu­la­tions have been de­vel­oped in line with MARPOL 2020 stan­dards. Gazprom­neft Ocean lu­bri­cants are ap­proved by lead­ing ma­rine equip­ment pro­duc­ers and are suit­able for use on two- and four-stroke en­gines, op­er­at­ing on all types of fuel, in­clud­ing low-sul­phur (with a sul­phur con­tent of less than 0.5 per­cent) and ul­tra-low-sul­phur (less than 0.1 per­cent) fu­els.

Ro­man Mirosh­nichenko, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor at Gazprom­neft Ma­rine Lu­bri­cants says: “Man­u­fac­tur­ing in Sin­ga­pore will help meet the grow­ing de­mand for high-tech ma­rine oils, and strengthen the com­pany's po­si­tion in the Asia—Pa­cific mar­ket. De­vel­op­ing the pro­duc­tion and lo­gis­tics net­work and ex­pand­ing our prod­uct of­fer­ing, to­gether with con­tin­u­ous ser­vice im­prove­ments, will in­crease ef­fi­ciency in sup­ply­ing cut­ting-edge lu­bri­cants, cre­at­ing con­ve­nient en­vi­ron­ment for our clients, all over the world.”

Gazprom Neft's ma­rine lu­bri­cants are cur­rently avail­able at more than 250 ports, in 24 coun­tries, world­wide. Gazprom Neft's strat­egy for de­vel­op­ing its ma­rine lu­bri­cants busi­ness en­vis­ages the fur­ther proac­tive ex­pan­sion of its re­tail net­work, to­gether with in­creas­ing its ge­o­graphic cov­er­age in pro­duc­ing in­no­va­tive prod­ucts abroad — thanks to which, sales of Gazprom­neft Ocean lu­bri­cants are ex­pected to grow to 100,000 tonnes by 2030, with the com­pany's global mar­ket share in ma­rine lu­bri­cants reach­ing four per­cent.

Gazprom Neft sub­sidiary Gazprom­neft Ma­rine Lu­bri­cants spe­cial­izes in the pro­duc­tion and sale of ma­rine lu­bri­cants on the in­ter­na­tional mar­ket, with a prod­uct range in­clud­ing 43 branded oils and lu­bri­cants for all kinds of ma­rine equip­ment.
