LLK-International (a wholly-owned subsidiary of LUKOIL) has won a tender to supply lubricants to Magnitogorsk Metallurgical Combine (MMC). LUKOIL’s proposal was recognised as the best of the six (!!!) bids in the tender, including those by foreign companies. From June 2012 to June 2013, LUKOIL will supply MMC with 1.22 million metric tonnes of oil of the following types LUKOIL Geyser (TsF 32, TsF 46 and ST 46), LUKOIL STEELO (68, 100, 150, 220, 320, 460), LUKOIL Tornado Т 46 and LUKOIL Intego (220 and 460). LLK will supply top-rate hydraulic oils for industrial and transport hydraulic systems, turbine oils (used for steam and gas turbines with and without reduction gearboxes), industrial circulation oils for oil film bearing of rolling machines and oils for heavy-duty industrial transmissions. “The victory in the MMC tender means that LUKOIL is successfully implementing its import replacement programme, allowing domestic industrial consumers to use Russian products that match the quality of foreign equivalents,” LLK-International General Director Maxim Donde said. LLK-International currently supplies oil products to a number of industrial enterprises, including Kuzbassrazrezugol, Taldinsky Surface Coal Mine, Metalloinvest, Norilsk Nickel and Severstal’s Cherepovets Metallurgical Combine. The product range of LUKOIL lubricants includes over 500 items. The Company controls about 45 percent of Russia’s industrial oils market. Oil quality is tested not only at LUKOIL plants but also at European laboratories. Today, over 350 approvals and certificates have been received, including those issued by industrial technology manufacturers such as Siemens, Denison, Rexroth, ZF and MTU. Test and planned sales of LUKOIL lubricants are carried out in more than 30 countries.
