Chevron Lummus Global (CLG) has been awarded the licence and engineering contracts for a 270TMTPA (thousand metric tonnes per annum) lubricants base oil plant at Indian Oil Corporation’s Haldia Refinery in West Bengal, India. The plant will use CLG’s ISODEWAXING and ISOFINISHING technologies.

The Haldia unit will be designed to produce mainly premium API Group III base oils by processing unconverted oil from an upstream hydrocracking unit. Growth is projected in India’s base oil market, and the new unit will help reduce dependence on imported base oils.
