LUKOIL Marine Lubricants opens new branch office in Hong Kong

July 2016 – With an increasing market share in Hong Kong and the greater China area, LUKOIL Marine Lubricants has opened a new branch office in Hong Kong.

The official opening ceremony was held on Friday, 27th May 2016, and was attended by more than 50 prestigious guests from Hong Kong and Taiwan as well as LUKOIL Marine’s Managing Directors June Manoharan and Jan Thiedeitz. The celebration was also a great opportunity to showcase the latest iCOlube and EAL technology during technical seminars.

Hong Kong has long been held as one of the most important and strategically located maritime hubs in the world. Its position on the Far East trade routes means it is in the geographical centre of the fast-developing Asia- Pacific Basin.

Mrs. Manoharan states “With the new office we are taking into account the commercial and economic development of the region and will further strengthen our presence in Asia” and James Lee, Regional Sales Director Greater China at LUKOIL Marine and head of the new office, adds “This way we are even closer to our customers in Hong Kong, China and Taiwan”.

The branch office is located centrally on Hong Kong Island on floor 52/F of Central Plaza, the third tallest tower in the city overlooking Victoria Harbour and ‘The Peak’.

About LUKOIL and LUKOIL Marine Lubricants

 LUKOIL is the leading Russian company in exploring, producing, refining and marketing petroleum products. LUKOIL was established in 1991 through the merger of a group of oil-and-gas production companies located in the western Siberian cities Langepas, Urai and Kogalym, whose initials form the acronym LUK. In 2007 LUKOIL decided to bring its expertise in lubricants technology to the marine industry. LUKOIL Marine Lubricants was founded as a global sales and marketing business focusing on the production and sales of marine lubricants worldwide. Since then the company already positioned itself as technology leader with the introduction of the first 100 BN cylinder oil as the answer to severe corrosive wear issues of modern engines and the development of iCOlube®, an onboard unit for intelligent cylinder oil lubrication.
