LUKOIL to supply lubricants to Phosagro, a world leading mineral fertilizers producer
Moscow. LUKOIL has started a large-scale cooperation with one of the world’s leading phosphate-based fertilizers producers PhosAgro in the sphere of lubricants supplies. In 2018, PhosAgro companies will acquire over 2 thousand tons of LUKOIL lubricants with AVANTGARDE ULTRA M3 motor oils for heavy duty machines and transmission oils accounting for the main bulk of the supply.
In 2017, LUKOIL motor and transmission oils of modern specifications were tested in quarry and mining machinery of Kirov branch of Apatit, a mining subsidiary of PhosAgro. The successful test results allowed LUKOIL to take part in Apatit tenders and to replace a significant share of imported lubricants.
“It is the first time we supply our lubricants for a company of PhosAgro Group. I believe there is a huge potential for development of our collaboration. In the future, we expect to offer to our partner a comprehensive service support program and new specialized lubricants for chemical processing equipment as well as co-products,” stated LUKOIL Lubricants Company General Director Maxim Donde.
PhosAgro Group is Europe’s largest producer of phosphate-based fertilizers, the world’s largest producer of high-grade phosphate rock. The company’s products, including phosphate rock, over 35 kinds of fertilizers, feed phosphates, ammonia and sodium trypoliphosphate, are available in 100 countries.
