Chevron, Tethys sign MoU to produce Texaco-branded lubricants in Nigeria



Chevron Brands International LLC and Tethys Ltd have signed a Branded Business Development Agreement encompassing local production, distribution, and marketing of Texaco-branded lubricants in Nigeria.

The move will allow motorists in Nigeria to access a wide range of locally blended Texaco-branded automotive and industrial lubricants under the Texaco, Havoline, and Delo brands.

This includes engine oils, transmission fluids, gear oils, greases, and hydraulic fluids.

“Tethys is an experienced marketer in Nigeria, and we are proud to be entering into this relationship with them to introduce our exceptional range of lubricant products,” said Pat McCloud, General Manager of Chevron Europe Finished Lubricants.

As we commence this strategic relationship with Tethys, consumers in Nigeria can look forward to the supply of quality Texaco–branded lubricants.
