Petroleum Products Department

Overview of the business

In Japan, the Petroleum Products Department has put in place a supply structure for petroleum products in general as special agents of JXTG Nippon Oil & Energy Corporation and Mitsubishi Corporation.
In China, we have a joint venture with JXTGE and China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation Group (Sinopec Lubricant Company) named Tianjin Nisseki Lubricants & Grease Co., Ltd., as well as a joint venture with JXTGE called JXTG Nippon Oil & Energy (Guangzhou) Lubricants Corporation, which manufactures a range of lubricants.
We are also involved in the sale and distribution of refrigerant oil (mineral oil-based) for use with air conditioner compressors, which is manufactured in Karamay, Xinjiang, at a collaborative venture between JXTGE and China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC). Concurrently, to respond to the environmental burden of refrigerants, as well as to the rising functionality of air conditioners, our lineup offers an ester-based (synthetic) refrigerant oil.
Meiwa (Shanghai) Corporation provides stable, just-in-time supply of lubricant products to customers throughout the country, by means of a nationwide network of more than 30 distribution bases and more than 20 sales offices.

Strengths of the business

Petroleum Products Department

The Petroleum Products Department has, through long years in the lubricant business, built a supply chain that includes not only lubricants, which is a foundational business in Japan, but also the base oils that are their raw materials, as well as additives. Recently we strengthened our line-up of liquid paraffin, solvents and others, so that we can meet a variety of customer needs.
Within China, we view the stable supply of lubricants made by JX as a growth business, and are strengthening the functionality with the aim of becoming a company that can create its own demand.
