Gazprom Neft expands its range of high-tech marine lubricants

Gazpromneft-Lubricants, operator of the Gazprom Neft lubricants business, has launched a new marine oil for engines running on ultra-low-sulphur (below 0.1 percent) fuels. This high-tech product, Gazpromneft Ocean CCL17, is fully compliant with new requirements under the International MARPOL Convention.*

Marine oil with an alkali neutralisation number of 17 has improved performance properties. This oil’s innovative formula prevents deposits accumulating, while ensuring adequate neutralisation capacity. It has been approved by leading international marine equipment manufacturers and is currently available in more than 200 ports around the world.

“In developing lubricant formulations we take into account both new shipbuilding technologies and strict international standards in environmental and industrial safety. The new Gazpromneft Ocean CCL17 marine oil, which meets all MARPOL and ECA requirements, is already being used on Russian vessels, where it has proved its high efficiency. The company’s production assets and extensive distribution network mean we can meet customers’ requirements for new high-tech oils anywhere in the world” Roman Miroshnichenko, Head of Marine Lubricants Business

The Gazpromneft Ocean product portfolio includes 15 cutting-edge branded engine lubricants, for use with various kinds of fuel and on any kind of vessel, including ice-breakers, tankers, bulk cargo ships, container vessels, ferries and cruise ships. Gazprom Neft’s long-term strategy for developing its marine lubricants business envisages further developing the production of high-tech lubricants, and expanding its international distribution network for selling these products.

Reference
* MARPOL — the “International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships”. An amendment to the main treaty (convention) in early 2015 introduced a further regulation governing the permissible amount of sulphur in marine fuels used in vessels covering Sulphur Emission Control Areas (SECA, covering shipping zones including the Baltic Sea, the North Sea and the English Channel, where vessels are required to switch to low-sulphur fuels). With effect from 1 January 2020 the requirements of the MARPOL Convention forbidding the use of fuels with sulphur content above 0.5 percent will be introduced for throughout international navigation.
