Global base oils consumption of Group III is growing, while Group I is declining steadily for the last decade. Motor oil manufacturers switch from SN150 base oils to 4cSt and 6cSt Group III base oils or to 100N and 150N Group II alternatives to meet higher fuel economy requirements.
Taneco can produce 90,000 metric tons per year of Group II and 100,000 t/y of Group III base oils. Tatneft has been DYM Resources’ partner for many years for various products. In case you have a demand for Group III base oils 4 cSt please do not hesitate to contact us.
