Gazpromneft-Lubricants to increase production of advanced synthetic lubricants

Omsk, January 26 - Neftegaz.RU. According to the report of the Gazprom Neft, the company has begun construction of a hydroisodewaxing complex at its Omsk lubricants plant.

This complex will produce base oils for high-tech synthetic lubricants used on modern automotive equipment and industrial machinery, allowing the company to free itself completely from using imported base oils in producing premium product lines.

The facility has a design capacity of 220,000 tonnes per year.
Gazprom Neft’s investment in this project stands at more than RUB 32 billion.


The new complex will further expand the premium G-Energy- and Gazpromneft synthetic lubricants product ranges, expected to increase Gazprom Neft’s market share in packaged lubricants on the Russian market to 25%.

Anatoly Cherner, Deputy CEO for Logistics, Processing and Sales of Gazprom Neft, said:
  • This new complex will be able to meet demand for those high-tech feedstocks essential in producing advanced synthetic lubricants, across all of our plants
  • Replacing imported alternatives with our own Group II and Group III base oils will allow us to cut the cost of ready-to-use motor oils, while improving their competitiveness
  • Apart from which, the new complex will allow us to expand our premium G-Energy and Gazpromneft synthetic-lubricants ranges
The hydroisodewaxing complex has been designed around cutting-edge technological and environmentally-friendly solutions.
Equipment for the future facility is being produced by leading Russian enterprises Volgogradneftemash and Uralhimmash.

 
Gazpromneft-Lubricants is a subsidiary of Gazprom Neft, specialising in the production and sale of oils, lubricants and service fluids.
Established in 2007, Gazpromneft-Lubricants has 6 production facilities in Russia, Italy and Serbia.
