Trading in the oil industry takes place at the international level. It is developed on the basis of three elements: arbitration, information, and risk. The market is active 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Its scope is international, and operations happen in real time.
Our trading activity is carried out globally through various offices established in the most relevant strategic European, American, and Asian markets.
We create products from basic petrochemicals and their derivatives. Our commitment to innovation and technology in our main plants in Spain, Portugal, and Mexico (in alliance with Mexican group KUO) allows us to continue growing and increasing the number of countries in which we are present. We have synthetic rubber and special chemical products plants in Spain, Mexico, and China.
We have managed to set ourselves apart, consolidating the production of new product ranges. These include Repsol Healthcare, with products intended for pharmaceutical use, and the polyethylene range Repsol Resistex.
In this part of the business, we produce and distribute bottled and bulk liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and Autogas.
With four million clients, we are the leading retail distributor in Spain and the third in Portugal. At Repsol, we are invested in gas with initiatives such as Autogas: the most widely used alternative motor fuel in the world.
Diesels, gasoline, and natural gas are some of the products that we sell all over the world. We have almost 4,700 service stations in Spain, Portugal, Peru, and Italy. Our expansion in Mexico is opening the doors to a new market. In addition, we have other channels for the sale of derivatives, such as asphalts, coke, oils, paraffins, and aviation fuels.
Everything we learn in world-class competitions is applied to our products to design lubricants that protect and prolong the life of your engine.
We are present through this business in over 90 countries, and its sales have grown by 17% in Spain alone.
