A bulk lubricant storage and transfer terminal of PJSC LUKOIL was brought into operation in Vienna, Austria, on April 26. The opening ceremony was attended by Valery Grayfer, chairman of PJSC LUKOIL’s Board of Directors, Harry Kopietz, president of Vienna Provincial Parliament, and Walter Ruck, president of the Vienna Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
The construction of the terminal on the bank of the Danube, which includes a tank farm and a mooring complex, is part of the second phase of the upgrade at the Austrian lubricant blending facility of LUKOIL Lubricants Europe, which LUKOIL acquired in 2014.
LUKOIL’s facility in Austria has obtained the highest category of certification, VDA 6.3, from the German Association of the Automotive Industry and is one of the lubricant suppliers to automotive assembly plants of German automotive manufacturers. The new terminal in Vienna will make it possible to optimize the logistics of base oil supplies from Russia and enhance the competitiveness of LUKOIL’s end products in Europe.
