Sealub Alliance coverage passes 700 ports

Hong Kong: The Sealub Alliance network of marine lubricant suppliers formed last year by Gulf Oil Marine reports that it has added new member Prista Oil Holding, expanding the network's coverage to more than 700 ports in 50 countries. Bulgarian-headquartered Prista will have exclusive rights to produce and supply Sealub Alliance marine lubricant products and services in Bulgaria, Georgia, Romania and Turkey.
"This marine partnership with Prista Oil in the strategic area of the Black Sea, combined with our other partnership with Transoil for Russia and Ukraine, is offering Sealub Alliance customers a unique geographical coverage," said Caroline Huot, CEO and managing director of Gulf Oil Marine in Hong Kong. "It is definitely for Gulf Oil Marine and Sealub Alliance a major step ahead in our long-term supply strategy to serve the shipping industry."
"Prista Oil Holding's stepping into partner association with Sealub Alliance is probably one of the most strategic moves made by our company," said Plamen Bobokov, chairman of the company's board of directors. "We believe in Sealub Alliance's conception, and we'll put effort and energy into the Alliance's progress ... I am certain that this is the choice that most ship owners around the world will be making."
The Sealub Alliance now projects that it will expand its network to 1,000 ports by the end of 2009.  [01/10/09]
