Gazpromneft Marine Lubricants expands presence in Mediterranean
Gazpromneft Marine Lubricants said it has expanded its network in the Mediterranean to 27 ports in Greece, seven ports in Egypt, and 20 ports in Turkey.
“Expansion of our supply network in the Mediterranean region is an important step towards setting up a comfortable infrastructure for customers’ businesses. Stable availability of oils in such heavy traffic regions as Suez and the Bosporus, as well as in the majority of other Mediterranean ports, allows to replenish supplies in the nearest point with short notice,” said Roman Miroshnichenko, managing director of Gazpromneft Marine Lubricants.
“Partner’s production facilities in Turkey and Greece, as well as a warehouse in Egypt, allow us to maintain product availability and provide short notice in the region. Both blending sites have successfully passed technical audit for compliance with international and Gazpromneft standards,” the company said.
All the lubricants are produced in strict accordance with original Gazpromneft Ocean formulations. Gazpromneft Marine Lubricants product portfolio includes 15 cutting-edge branded engine lubricants for use with various kinds of marine fuel, and also hydraulic, compressor, gear, turbine oils, and special greases.
Gazpromneft Ocean engine oils were developed in 2017 and meet the latest MARPOL requirements.
To prevent the spread of COVID-19, the Russian oil company also said it has developed and introduced special procedures of non-contact liaising between Gazpromneft specialists and vessel crew.
