Gazpromneft Lubricants, operator of the Gazprom Neft lubricants business, has opened its first service station in the Balkans as part of its proprietary international G-Energy Service programme.
The G-Energy Service station is located in a suburb of Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and comes equipped with seven oil-changing stations, as well as offering an extensive range of technical services using Gazpromneft and G-Energy products designed for automobile servicing both in-warranty and beyond.
The station also offers engine and transmission repair and reconditioning services, brake pad replacement, as well as specialist equipment allowing service technicians to undertake full diagnostics.
The G-Energy Service initiative is an international programme from Gazpromneft Lubricants supporting partner service centres working under the G-Energy Service brand in helping source specialist equipment, training staff, and fitting out new service centres.
All service stations are equipped with their own facilities, offering cutting-edge technology and equipment, and meeting the highest environmental and safety standards. The G-Energy Service programme is expected to expand throughout Russia, the CIS, Western Europe, the countries of the Middle East, and elsewhere.
Alexander Trukhan, CEO, Gazpromneft Lubricants, commented: “We continue to expand our geographic presence: we now have more than 35 G-Energy Service Stations operating throughout eight countries — Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Georgia, Armenia, Italy and Hungary, as well as Bosnia and Herzegovina. And the number of potential partners wanting to take part in the programme continues to grow. We plan to open a further three services stations in Moscow in the near future, as well as a facility in China.”
