Gazpromneft Starts Export Sales of Yaroslavl Group III Base Oils

Russian state-owned Gazpromneft has offered HVI-2 and VHVI-4 base oils from Yaroslavl Refinery for export, according to data received by DYM Resources.

Yaroslavl Refinery launched 100,000 tons/year Group III base oils last summer 2017, but could not stabilize production quality by June.

“The product quality now looks good: The color is 0, saturates content is 99%, sulphur content is less than 10ppm,” commented Denis Varaksin, base oils and wax director of DYM Resources.

Gazpromneft does not guarantee minimum viscosity index in its specifications, although typical VI stands at 120, which is the minimum required to classify for Group III according to American Petroleum Institute (API) definition.

The feedstock quality has changed during the project implementation and the unit needed different catalysts to maintain a high quality of production, market participants say. The refinery planned to improve Group III products quality by the end of 2018.

Yaroslavl Refinery is located 300 km northeast of Moscow and exports about 40,000 tons of Group I base oils per year, most of them headed to the Baltic ports of Riga and Liepaja.
Ownership of the refinery is split between the Russian oil and gas giants Gazpromneft and Rosneft. Both companies have equal shares in the refinery’s output.

For June, loading consists of around 800 tons of HVI-2 (API Group II base oils with viscosity at 100C at 2 cst) and about 600 tons of HVHI-4 (API Group III, viscosity 4 cst).

Yaroslavl Refinery is located close to Russia’s western border and already exports its Group III products from Rosneft’s share via Baltic ports. Rosneft sells export volume through monthly tenders, while Gazprom allocates base oils through distributors.

Gazpromneft’s base oils are REACH registered.

DYM Resources GmbH is a base oils trading company that specializes in sourcing from Russia. The company can offer base oils from Yaroslavl refinery in flexi containers, liquid trucks, or other form of packing. To receive a quote, please email us at

Fergana Refinery Plans Group II and III Base Oils Production

Fergana Refinery, the only base oils producer in Uzbekistan, plans to begin Group II and Group III production in 2021-2022, a refinery representative stated at the CIS Base Oils and Lubricants conference in Moscow, Russia, held from May 23rd to 24th, 2018.

The refinery can currently use ExxonMobil technology to produce Group II and III base oils, converting raffinates and using hydro-deparaffinization and hydro-finishing.

“Group II and III base oils are in high demand in Central Asia, as economies in the region are growing and switching to modern machines and cars, which requires higher quality lubricants. The Fergana project looks promising, especially if the refinery manages to keep the production costs low.” – Denis Varaksin, the DYM Resources director of base oils and waxes

The Fergana Refinery representative estimated their export of base oils and lubes in bulk at around 100,000 tons per year. The refinery currently has the capacity to produce more than 450,000 tons of Group I base oils, but lacks the necessary feedstock. Sources at the refinery say that additional crude oil supplies delivered from Kazakhstan have recently improved the refinery’s running rates.

Fergana Refinery exports SN 100, SN 150, SN 350, and SN 500 base oils and their industrial equivalents. The main destination markets are Central Asia, the Middle East, and Turkey.

Uzbekistan’s lubes market is estimated at 216,000 tons per year, according to Uznefteproduct. The country imports around 20,000 tons of lubes annually.

DYM Resources can offer base oils as well as industrial lubes from Fergana Refinery in rail tank cars or flexi-containers at competitive prices, with high quality logistics and flexible payment terms.
