Repsol begins lubricants production in China and Malaysia
Press Release06/07/2011 18:35
The production start-up is a result of the agreement signed between Repsol and Malaysian industrial group UMW.
The company’s development plan envisages further growth in this area based on the entry into some of the most competitive markets in Asia such as Singapore, Brunei, Papua New Guinea and Myanmar.
Repsol aims to sell nearly 20,000 tonnes of lubricants by 2015, equivalent to more than 25% of the company’s annual sales of these products in Spain.
Due to the high demand for lubricants in those countries, production there will be complemented by the export of high-end products, such as synthetic lubricants for the automotive industry, produced at Repsol’s Puertollano refinery.
Repsol has a wide range of technologically-advanced lubricants that meet the highest market standards in the automotive industry and other sectors.
