The Chief Executive Officer, Eunisell International, Iain Fraser, has said that it is important to develop the downstream sector of the Nigerian oil and gas industry.
He said this during a technical training that was organised by the firm for lubricant additive customers with the theme: ‘Advances and trends in automotive, transmission and industrial fluids’, in Lagos.
Speaking on the topic, ‘Base oils and viscosity modifiers’, Fraser expressed the company’s determination to assist Nigeria to benefit from the development of the downstream sector.
He stated, “Nigeria must not be left out of the developments in the downstream sector; this is why we carry out such training for various organisations at no cost.
“We have done this every year for the past 15 years, empowering participants with the requisite knowledge to guarantee the production of top quality lubricants for automobiles and industries in Nigeria.”
The Chief Executive Officer, Eunisell Limited, Ramesh Hullur, who spoke on the topic: ‘Eunisell in Africa and industrial gear oils, hydraulic oils’, said that the training was part of efforts to raise the participants’ technical awareness on the lubricants market, and to enable them to have a better understanding of the link between engine design lubricant performance and knowledge of global trends in the downstream sector of the oil and gas industry.
According to him, the training is designed to help participants gain cutting-edge knowledge on trends and developments in the automotive, transmission and industrial fluids market.
“This training is essential and is meant to bring together professionals, who are into blending of lubricants and other petroleum and allied products in Nigeria, with a view to bringing them up to speed with industry developments and technological breakthroughs that have led to the advancement of additives and lubricants in other parts of the world,” Hullur added.
He also said that the seminar created a platform to access the latest information on specialty fluids, thereby enhancing application expertise.
Hullur said that Eunisell had been supplying key products and solutions to customers operating in Africa since 1996, and was a major supplier of oil field chemicals such as demulsifiers, corrosion inhibitor, water clarifier and sludge breaker to local and international oil companies, including Shell, Total, Nigerian Petroleum Development Company, Network E&P and Oando.
