Russian oil company Tatneft has started polyalphaolefin (PAO) production, company representative said at Argus Tatarstan Oil products, Logistics and Trading conference. Conference took place in Kazan on 21-23 March.

The company has capacity to produce up to 10 000 tons per year of PAO and can produce the following viscosities: 2, 4, 6 and 12 cSt.

At the moment 2 and 4 cSt grades are available for export in flexi-container or tank-containers. You can find specification of PAO at our website.

Producer plans to allocate May volumes until 20 April. Usually there is strong domestic demand in Russia for PAO as there are no other producers of PAO in the region.

“Volume available for export will be small due to early stages of production, maybe 10 tons of each grade” – sources says.

The global polyalphaolefins market is expected to reach USD 1.58 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc.
