Gazprom Neft Lubricants begins supplies to Israel

Gazpromneft Lubricants — operator of the Gazprom Neft lubricants business — has begun supplies to Israel. Under the terms of this contract, concluded with major distributor Negev Distribution Lubricants Ltd, 200 tonnes of Gazprom Neft branded products have already been despatched from warehouses in Russia.

Approximately 2,000 tonnes of lubricants and service fluids are expected to be supplied to this Israeli partner in 2015, covering the widest possible product range, including engine oils for various types of gasoline and diesel car and van engines, mini-buses and light transport vehicles, diesel HGV engines and highway and off-road vehicles, as well as transmission fluids for use in mechanical and automatic car, bus and truck transmission systems.

Oils and engine fluids supplied in Israel are produced at Gazprom Neft’s own factories, and meet the highest international standards for product quality.

Gazpromneft Lubricants CEO Alexander Trukhan commented: “More than 50 percent of the company’s engine oils are now sold abroad. Over the past year we have entered new markets in more than 10 countries, offering lubricants that more than match the quality of those offered by major international manufacturers. The commencement of supplies in Israel is the next logical step in achieving our strategic objective of strengthening our position in the international market.”
