An official ground breaking ceremony for a new PJSC LUKOIL lubricant blending plant was recently held in Kazakhstan.

The facility is being built in the Almaty region, close to the Western Europe-Western China transportation route, the Kazakh part of which will be completed in 2016. In view of the favourable location on the crossroads of vital transportation routes, the priority market for the plant will not only be Kazakhstan, but also the other countries of Central Asia, as well as Mongolia, Afghanistan and China.

“It is a new stage of LUKOIL’s cooperation with the Republic of Kazakhstan. The capacity of the plant will be 100,000 tons a year with an option to increase the output up to 130,000 tons. About $85 million will be invested. A high-tech lube blending plant capable of producing world-class products will be built,” said Maxim Donde, general director of LLK-International.
