Gazpromneft Marine Lubricants on Thursday (3 September) said it carried out its first bunkering in the port of Hong Kong.
The vessel was supplied with Gazpromneft Ocean CCL40 oil specially developed for engines operating on low-sulfur fuel, it said.
Gazpromneft added that Hong Kong has become the fifth region in the Asia Pacific where Gazpromneft marine oils are available.
ISO certified local production sites are arranged in Singapore and South Korea and they have also successfully passed the technical audit for compliance with Gazpromneft standards.
The company added that having local productions and warehouses allows it to guarantee supply even with short notice in Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea and Taiwan.
“Developing new products and services we put the needs of ship owners and the specifics of the regions of operation first,” said Roman Miroshnichenko, Managing Director of Gazpromneft Marine Lubricants.
“Today we form an optimized supply network in China to ensure prompt deliveries in ports along the entire coast, including such hubs like Dalian, Shanghai and Guangzhou.”
