Chematek remain the exclusive authorized distributor of
ENI Oils and Lubricants in Australia.
At the end of last week, reports ran in various news outlets that ENI was ‘all but exiting’ Australia. We would like to clarify that these articles were specifically written concerning the natural gas assets that ENI holds in Australia.
The reports went on to detail that the giant Italian industrial company is working with Citi to sell these assets to free up more cash. ENI’s gas fields were managed by ENI directly in Australia in an arrangement that is completely separate to the distribution of its oil and lubricants in Australia.
It is important to note that Chematek is the exclusive authorized distributor of ENI Oils and Lubricants in Australia. We purchase product directly from ENI in Italy, store at warehouses across Australia and deliver directly to our Australian companies.
THIS ARRANGEMENT IS UNAFFECTED BY THE ANNOUNCEMENT ABOVE.
Claire Rushe, GM Chematek Australia said “Over the last 3 years we’ve steadily built up a network of customers buying ENI Oils and Lubricants across many categories. We occasionally work with the division of ENI that manages their gas fields, but it is a completely separate business and category to Oils and Lubricants. Our relationships are directly with Italy and we look forward to continuing to build the Australian market over the next few years”.
Should you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact the Chematek team.
