Chevron Oronite announces new distributor in Nigeria

Chevron Oronite has appointed ABD Energy Solutions Limited as their distributor in Nigeria. The agreement with ABD Energy Solutions involves not only the sale of OLOA® additives and PARATONE® viscosity modifiers, but also providing technical and laboratory support to customers.

ABD Energy Solutions operates a strategically located warehouse in Nigeria’s most populous city Lagos, which will allow storage of some Oronite products for greater availability and flexibility in meeting customer needs.

“ABD Energy Solutions Limited’s vast experience in the refining and petrochemical business gives them a good knowledge of the lubricant, base oil and additives segments, and makes them a welcome addition to the Oronite distributor network,” said Alain Robert, regional sales manager, Europe-Middle East-Africa for Chevron Oronite.

“Moreover, they have a very focused and strategic approach thanks to their extensive knowledge of the Nigerian market. This should help Oronite further strengthen our presence in the region and also enhance our level of service.”

Oronite said that the selection of ABD Energy Solutions Limited is aligned with its continuous desire to be in close proximity to customers in the region.

“We strongly believe the ABD Energy Solutions Limited team is well positioned to help us deliver the required solutions and services to customers in Nigeria,” Robert said.

Chevron Oronite Company LLC is an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary of Chevron Corporation. Collectively, Chevron Oronite Company LLC and other companies in the Chevron Oronite business unit are a leading developer, manufacturer and marketer of fuel and lubricant additives, helping provide solutions to customers globally.
