Sep 13 2019

ExxonMobil Marine and China Merchants Energy Shipping (CMES) have signed a strategic co-operation framework agreement aimed at widening their co-operation.

At the signing ceremony, both sides reflected on their successful co-operation over the past five years. Since the signing of the Marine Lubricant Co-operation Framework Agreement at the China International Import Expo (CIIE) last year, the two companies have closely co-operated in ship chartering, marine fuels & lubricant supply, technical leadership and corporate collaboration.

Based on the former co-operation agreement, the two sides will continue to expand co-operation and conduct a series of joint projects in fields including digital transformation, advanced engines, lubricants & fuels dialogues and on board training support. 

“CMES always adheres to the concept of prioritising quality and customer focus, the principle of creating a better future by leveraging mutual benefits and win-win situations, and the guiding paths of co-operation and open mindedness. We continue to produce successful business co-operation with ExxonMobil on ship chartering and marine lubricant procurement,” said Xie Chunlin, CMES Chairman and CEO. “The signing of this strategic co-operation framework agreement will further strengthen communication with ExxonMobil. Both sides will leverage their respective advantages, continuously deepening and expanding areas of co-operation."

Pamela Skaufel, ExxonMobil Director Aviation and Marine Lubricants, added, “We have great confidence in co-operating with CMES and will provide them with comprehensive support. We firmly believe that both sides will move forwards, formulating a deeper strategic partnership in the future. “

ExxonMobil was also invited to attend the delivery and naming ceremony of CMES’ new VLCC ‘New Vision’, which was held at Dalian Shipbuilding Industry (DSIC). ‘New Vision’ is the fifth tanker with a loading capacity of 308,000 tonnes to be built by DSIC for CMES.
