Lao Fuel Imported From Shell Oil

Meanwhile, Petrovietnam (PV) Oil Lao Co., Ltd, a member of Petrovietnam Oil Corporation, continues to import fuel from the Shell Oil Company of Thailand, for supply to the Lao market.

The two companies signed a contract extension agreement in Vientiane Capital last week.

The signing ceremony was to help promote the supply of EURO4 fuel, which meets local and international standards, for service to the public, signifying a strong relationship between both companies for the supply of quality Lao fuel.

Petrovietnam Oil Corporation (PV OIL) completed the purchase of all shares of Societe Shell du Lao, taking full ownership in December 2010.
