Bader Saeed Al Lamki, CEO of ADNOC Distribution.

The agreement establishes a framework for both companies to foster mutually beneficial cross-border business synergies, leveraging their respective local market capabilities and infrastructure, as they enhance the efficiency of their overseas lubricant operations, including the supply of lubricants and access to key logistical and marketing support services.

They are the perfect partner for us to build our offering, as their production and marketing capabilities will be instrumental in expanding our business and footprint in the international lubricants’ markets,” said Sanjay Kumar, executive director and head of Lubes SBU, HPCL Middle East FZCO.
