The company added that this agreement comes as part of ENOC Misr’s ambitious plans to maximize operational efficiency and ensure product availability in the local market.

The Group CEO of ENOC, Saif Humaid Al Falasi, said that “The Egyptian market is one of the largest in Africa, contributing to the continent’s lubricants consumption. With a population of almost 100 million and an estimated growth rate of 2.2%, comes a consistent increase in demand for lubricant products and solutions. This, coupled with the country’s large refineries and government investment strategy has encouraged key industry players to continue investing in the lubricants industry in Egypt.”
