Japan Engine Corporation (J-ENG) experts have confirmed the possibility of using Gazpromneft Ocean cylinder oils in low-speed engines of their own production, says Gazpromneft-Lubricants.
The company got the official approvals of J-ENG for Gazpromneft Ocean* CCL 40, Gazpromneft Ocean CCL 70, Gazpromneft Ocean CCL 100 HSF and Gazpromneft Ocean CCL 17 ULSF.

“Offering high-quality lubricants and PLUS technical service, we help our clients to maintain safe and efficient operation of complicated ship machinery”.
