Gazpromneft-Lubricants has entered into a lubricant supply agreement with the Arctic transport fleet of Russian nickel and palladium producer Nornickel.
A total of 80 metric tonnes (mt) of lubricants are planned for delivery in the first half of 2018.
“Due to the high quality of our products, we can ensure the reliable operation of vessels carrying out transportation along the Northern Sea Route,” says Roman Miroshnichenko, Branch Director (Marine Lubricants), Gazpromneft-Lubricants.
“Marine lubricants we produce are recommended for use even in the harshest Arctic conditions.”
According to Gazpromneft-Lubricants, the products are intended for medium-speed four-stroke marine engines installed in container ships, tanker and icebreaker vessels of Nornickel's Murmansk Transportation branch.
The dry cargo fleet of Nornickel transports materials year-round between the seaports of Dudinka, Murmansk, Arkhangelsk, Rotterdam and Hamburg.
The Yenisei tanker delivers gas condensate to the European ports from the Pelyatkinskoye gas condensate field (in the Krasnoyarsk region), while the Dudinka icebreaker is used in the fleet for icebreaking and port operations in the water area of Dudinka port on the Yenisei River.
