Gazprom Neft and the Rostov Oblast have signed a Cooperation Agreement on developing supplies of lubricants and service fluids. The signatories to the agreement, signed at this year’s St Petersburg International Economic Forum, were Alexander Dyukov, CEO and Chairman of the Management Board, Gazprom Neft, and Vasily Golubev, Governor of the Rostov Oblast.
The parties will work together to determine the Oblast’s requirements for modern lubricants and service fluids in selecting alternatives to imported products, allowing Gazprom Neft to supply the region’s businesses with high-quality lubricants. In addition to this, the company will also be offering engineering, technical and servicing support to organisations using Gazprom Neft’s products, throughout the Rostov Oblast.
Alexander Dyukov, Chairman of the Management Board, Gazprom Neft, commented: “The Rostov Oblast is a major industrial and agrarian centre for the country. The region’s production and transport logistics complexes have considerable potential for implementing import-substitution programmes in respect of lubricants and service fluids. Gazprom Neft has technological and scientific expertise, an effective production base and a well-developed supply network, all of which mean we can meet the needs of businesses in the Rostov Oblast in supplying the necessary volumes of high-quality and innovative products. I would also like to highlight that the Rostov Oblast was the starting point for the company developing its bitumen terminals network, in 2018. Thanks to the emergence of a high-tech terminal in Salsk, supplies of bitumen materials to the Southern Federal Okrug have, already, increased by almost a third.”Alexander Dyukov Chairman of the Management Board, Gazprom Neft
