Gulf Oil International Vice President of Operations and Production, Tobias Tasche: "It gives me great pleasure to be able to announce that Gulf Oil International Ltd will now have its own company to serve our customers in Europe, thanks in part to its new wider alliance with its strategic partner Q8. The new supply company will enable us to work much more closely with our customer network; this is a vital step to ensure Gulf Oil International Ltd meets the strategic objectives planned for the company for the next 5 years. Working in collaboration with Q8, in both Europe and the Middle East, allows us to supply in bigger volumes, with top quality products, thanks to newer facilities and a plan to invest in technology that will ultimately assist the growth of the Gulf branded business. To that end, it gives me great pleasure that we are working with Q8 to further strengthen Gulf’s presence in the downstream landscape in addition to introducing our own supply operation.”
