ExxonMobil Marine Ltd and China Merchants Energy Shipping Co. Ltd (CMES) have signed a strategic cooperation framework agreement, stating that ExxonMobil and CMES will leverage their respective advantages to comprehensively deepen their cooperation.
At the signing ceremony, both sides reflected on their successful cooperation over the past five years. Since the signing of the Marine Lubricant Cooperation Framework Agreement at the China International Import Expo (CIIE) last year, the two sides have closely cooperated in the areas of ship chartering, marine fuels and lubricant supply, technical leadership and corporate collaboration.
Based on the former cooperation agreement, the two sides will continue to expand cooperation and conduct a series of joint projects in fields including digital transformation, advanced engines, lubricants and 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 cooperation and open mindedness. We continue to produce successful business cooperation with ExxonMobil on ship chartering and marine lubricant procurement,” said Xie Chunlin, Chairman and CEO of CMES. “The signing of this strategic cooperation framework agreement will further strengthen communication with ExxonMobil. Both sides will leverage their respective advantages, continuously deepening and expanding areas of cooperation."
Pamela Skaufel, Director of ExxonMobil Aviation and Marine Lubricants added: “We have great confidence in cooperating 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.”
