Gazprom Neft opens Singapore office for marine lubes sales

Russia’s Gazprom Neft has opened an office in Singapore to oversee international sales and logistics network of its marine lubricants.

The Singapore office, Gazpromneft Marine Lubricants, will focus on markets in Southeast Asia and Europe.

“We are planning a significant increase in the production and sale of specialist lubricants, and expect to achieve a 4% market share in the international marine lubricants market by 2030,” said Anatoly Cherner, deputy chief executive for logistics at Gazprom Neft.

“Gazprom Neft’s strategy to 2030 envisages expanding our geographic coverage in sales of marine lubricants,” he said.

The marine lubricants and oils range, available under the Gazpromneft and Gazpromneft Ocean brands, includes 43 branded high-tech products for all kinds of marine equipment, with the range including, specifically, 15 kinds of Gazpromneft Ocean engine lubricants for two- and four-stroke engines.

The formulations have been developed in line with international shipping requirements and the provisions of the Marpol 2020 convention.

“Opening an operations office in Singapore – the centre of international shipping, where one of the world’s most important port hubs is located – will allow us to expand our production and logistics network more effectively, through the company’s own lubricants plants in Russia and partnering blending facilities abroad,” Cherner said.
