Gazpromneft-Lubricants recently presented its new Gazpromneft Ocean brand of marine lubricants for the Asia-Pacific markets at the Marintec China maritime exhibition in Shanghai.

The new range of marine lubricants for two- and four-stroke engines was showcased to participants at the event.

Marine industry specialists were informed about the key competitive advantages of the Gazpromneft Ocean product range, the existing technical service programmes and logistics capabilities of the company in Asia and beyond.

Roman Miroshnichenko, Branch Director (Marine Lubricants), Gazpromneft-Lubricants remarked: "Today, the Asia-Pacific is one of the most significant regions for the global shipping industry. Ports of China, South Korea and Singapore are among the world's ten largest, hosting hundreds of ships from around the globe daily. That is the reason why the first foreign presentation of the new marine lubricants brand was held at the Marintec China exhibition. I have no doubt that our Asian partners will appreciate the new Gazpromneft Ocean range of high-tech lubricants and will be able to see the economic effect of their application."

As Bunker Index previously reported, production of the Gazpromneft Ocean brand was announced in November. The products are being made at the company's plants in Omsk and Moscow.

Speaking at the time, Alexander Trukhan, CEO of Gazpromneft-Lubricants, remarked: "The launch of our own marine lubricants brand is an important step for the development of the company's global operations. We encounter significant business challenges requiring qualified approach and technological solutions. We intend to use all the advantages of the expertise that we have gained in the marine lubricants market, and to scale the experience of building the supply chain obtained in foreign markets over the past five years in order to become a significant player in the global industry."

The Gazpromneft Ocean product portfolio includes 15 lube oils for engines operating on various fuel types and installed on a range of vessels.

The company has said that this year it intends to expand both production geography and product storage in order for Gazpromneft Ocean to be supplied at the biggest foreign ports.
