Beijing: Rosneft Marine, the international marine fuel trading office of Russian state-owned oil company Rosneft, has opened its second office in Beijing, in a move to expand its international network to support its growing Asian client base.
Established in May 2012, Rosneft Marine’s multilingual team in its Beijing office aims to assist customers in the region with ease of communication and greater access to premium quality marine fuel in Asia, while its UK counterpart in London will continue to focus on the global and European markets.
“With the establishment of Emission Control Areas in North America, we foresee a rising demand for low sulphur fuel oils particularly for vessels travelling from Asia to the West Coast of the United States. We intend to work closely with regional ship operators who have US bound vessels to supply them with ECA compliant low sulphur fuels of the highest quality. We hope to collaborate with our clients, especially on the basis of long-term formula contracts as we are one of the few suppliers able to guarantee a reliable and consistent supply of high quality fuel in the region,” said Vladimir Brezhnev, director of Rosneft Marine UK.
