Repsol Lubricants, a member of the Total Lubmarine network for more than 50 years, has formally committed to its relationship with Total Lubmarine for a further three years. The partnership with Repsol Lubricants ensures Total Lubmarine can continue to best serve its maritime and power plant customers in Gibraltar, Peru, and Spain.
The Total Lubmarine network is made up of a range of partners who are able to manufacture in strategic locations and help enable lubricants to be delivered to more than 1,000 ports worldwide.
“Total Lubmarine is pleased to have reached an agreement with Repsol Lubricants to extend our long-standing partnership for a further three years. This renewed agreement will continue to ensure quality products for our customers in Spain, Gibraltar, and Peru,” said Total Lubmarine General Manager Robert Joore.
“This is particularly good news for our shipping customers calling at Gibraltar and Algeciras, two of the Mediterranean’s most important bunkering hubs. Our relationship with Total Lubmarine is as strong as ever, and we are very optimistic that the partnership will continue to be extremely productive,” added Francisco Javier Miranda, Repsol Lubricants director.
The partnership increases Total Lubmarine’s competitiveness in each region. In Peru, Total Lubmarine will now be using a regional supply chain instead of a European one, harnessing more local knowledge to fulfill customer’s requirements. In Spain and Gibraltar, the partnership with Repsol ensures that the customers continue to receive the best value in a competitive market.
The relationship between the two companies was first established in 1962.
Spain’s Repsol is a global company, present along the entire energy value chain. It is active in 37 countries and employs more than 25,000 people, and its products are sold all over the world. It produces some 700,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day and has one of Europe’s most efficient refining systems.
Total Lubmarine, a division of French energy major Total Lubrifiants S.A., provides the shipping industry with pioneering marine lubricants and greases. The company is dedicated to partnering with its customers to provide turnkey solutions to their lubricant needs. With sales and technical support based in 100 countries, Total Lubmarine provides one of the world’s largest delivery hub networks.
