Spanish oil company Cepsa Trading SA said on Wednesday it will produce and sell marine and power generation lubricants in India through a partnership with GP Global Energy Pvt Ltd, part of UAE-based GP Global (formerly called Gulf Petrochem).

GP Global will produce the marine lubricants line of Cepsa through a contract with its group company GP Petroleums Ltd, which runs a plant at Vasai in Mumbai.
