Russian oil producer Gazprom Neft on Saturday (28 March) said Gazpromneft Ocean engine oils are now available at 16 ports of South Korea, including Busan, Ulsan, Incheon, Pohang and Pyeongtaek.
Packaged or bulk products can be delivered on board in 3 or 4 days’ notice depending on port category, it said.
The company noted that production is carried out on a partner facility that has passed a technical audit for compliance with international standards, and quality is controlled at all stages from delivery of raw materials till the lubricant is transported onboard the vessel.
High quality base oils allow Gazpromneft Ocean lubricants to maintain optimal viscosity under high mechanical and thermal stresses, explains the company.
It adds that modern additives prevent lacquering, soot deposition, and maintain cleanliness in the piston area of the engines.
Gazpromneft notes that its lubricants are approved by leading equipment manufacturers: Wartsila, Winterthur Gas & Diesel, MAN Diesel & Turbo, J-ENG.
The company states that the first Gazpromneft Ocean CCL40 supplies have already been carried out at the ports of Busan, Masan and Incheon.

“We have established the most comprehensive customer experience by providing high tech lubricants approved by OEMs and digital platforms.
