KA Petra Sdn Bhd announced plans to build a 50,000-tonne-per-year lube blending plant in Malaysia, following the company’s appointment as a distributor for Gulf Oil lubricants in Malaysia.
The agreement with Gulf Oil International was signed yesterday during the Malaysia World Maritime Day 2016 Conference and Exhibition at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.
Datuk Shahrul Amirul, founder and managing director of KA Petra Sdn Bhd, said negotiations for the lube blending plant are already underway. Details of the lube blending plant will be announced later, he added.
Gulf Oil lubricants are currently produced in Singapore and shipped to Malaysia.
