In 2016, Gazpromneft Lubricants, oil business operator of Gazprom Neft, increased supply of lubricants under G-Energy and Gazpromneft brands to Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Kirghizia, Mongolia, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan by 34.6 % up to 35 thousand tons.
During 2016 the Company was steadily consolidating cooperation with leading mining, metallurgical, power industry and agricultural enterprises of Kazakhstan, including Aktubinsk Copper Company, Eurasian Resources Group and Kazakhmys Corp.
Another driver of premium lubricant and technical fluid sales boost was the launch if three technical service stations under G-Energy Service brand in Kazakhstan, operating under unified standards of an international program for technical service station development.
“We take notice of ever increasing demand for our production in Central Asian countries. It is caused by upgrades of service yards, requiring high quality lubricants with permissions from leading manufacturers of motor vehicles and equipment,” says Alexander Trukhan, General Director of Gazpromneft-Lubricants Ltd. “In 2017, we intend to continue development of top priority business areas in that region. For example, we plan to open five more G-Energy Service stations.”
