Nafta was an oil distribution chain owned by the Soviet Union but operated abroad.

In the 1920s, a Nafta chain operated in Sweden, before being sold to Gulf Oil in 1937. In the UK and Belgium a petrol chain was built up in the 1960s, with the British service stations being sold to Q8 in 1987.[1]

It is rumoured that these were used as spy bases during the Cold War.[citation needed]
