Sinopec lubricants are now available in New Zealand through a distribution partnership with Waitomo that commenced back in 2010.
Waitomo imports Sinopec lubricants directly from Sinopec’s state of the art lubricant blending facility located in Singapore. The Singapore plant was commissioned in July 2013 and represents a US$106 million investment by Sinopec. Singapore is the third largest oil industry hub in the world, providing Sinopec with ready access to lubricating base oils and additives, the essential ingredients in producing finished lubricants. Sinopec is now well positioned to expand its operations in the Asia-Pacific region, which is the largest and fastest-growing lubricants market, accounting for almost 42% of the total global lubricants market in 2012.
On July 8, Fortune Magazine published its list of the global top 500 companies for 2013. Sinopec ranked No. 4, the highest of any Chinese company on the list, with annual operating revenue of US$428.167 billion. This is the fifteenth consecutive year since 1999 that Sinopec has made the global top 500. Sinopec made the top ten for the first time in 2010, ranking at No.7, and moved up to No. 5 in 2011.
Sinopec expansion in Singapore will continue with JV partners Total and Shell, as they construct a shared facility that will include an import and export jetty, common pipelines, infrastructure and storage facilities. The facility is due for completion in 2015. Waitomo is seeking to grow Sinopec business and its distribution network throughout New Zealand, so if you are interested in learning more about Sinopec then give us a call.
