Castrol Offshore has entered the Bangladesh market with Rahimafrooz Distribution Ltd. Castrol Offshore is a specialist arm within the lubricants business of BP Plc. Castrol Offshore will now offer regionally managed branded products and specialized resources through distributor Rahimafrooz, headquartered in Dhaka, to support the Power, Oil & Gas Exploration and Production industries.
“Bangladesh is augmenting its current power generation capacity to meet double digit growth in demand year on year,” says William Dsouza, Castrol Offshore Regional Business Manager for India, Middle East and South Asia. “Castrol Offshore is present in over 50 countries and we hope to become an industrywide supplier of choice in Bangladesh to match what we have achieved elsewhere over many years.”
Mudassir Murtaza Moin, Managing Director at Rahimafrooz Group of Companies, adds: “The combination of Castrol Offshore’s specialist knowledge and technical expertise, together with Rahimafrooz’s extensive local resources in Bangladesh, mean that we can supply the Energy Sector with products and services that meet its needs, as well as provide the highest levels of system reliability and environmental performance under a wide range of operating conditions.”
In addition to supporting efforts to boost production of natural gas through existing facilities, Castrol and Rahimafrooz expect to play a key role in the continuing build up in Bangladesh’s power station capacity through the ‘Castrol Power offer’ by supplying high performance lubricants and lubrication services.
