Gazprom Neft begins production of new marine Lubricants under the Gazpromneft Ocean brand

Gazpromneft Lubricants, operator of the Gazprom Neft lubricants business, has begun production of its own brand of marine lubricants — Gazpromneft Ocean — produced at the company’s Omsk and Moscow lubricants plants.

The product portfolio includes 15 cutting-edge branded engine lubricants, for use with various kinds of fuel and on any kind of vessel, including ice-breakers, tankers, bulk cargo ships, container vessels, ferries and cruise ships.

The long-term strategy for the Gazprom Neft lubricants business envisages the further development of marine lubricants production and the organisation of an effective international sales network for such products. The geographic range of production and storage is expected to be further expanded in 2018, allowing the uninterrupted supply of Gazpromneft Ocean lubricants at major international ports.

«Developing our own marine lubricants brand marks a major step forward in developing the company’s global activities. We face serious business challenges currently, the resolution of which demands a skilled approach and technological solutions. We intend to take full advantage of the expertise we have gained in the marine lubricants market, as well as scaling-up our experience in aligning and fine-tuning the sales chain, gained in international markets over the last five years, in order to become a major industry player, worldwide».
