Thread: Crude Oil suitable for lube base oil production

  1. Crude Oil suitable for lube base oil production

    Dear All

    Our refinery is located in Karachi, Pakistan. We process Arabian light crude because its atmospheric residue is highly suitable for lube base oil production due to its high viscosity and low pour point. We are the only lube base oil producer in Pakistan and our GRM is mainly depend on lube base oil production.

    Due to current scenario, loss of supply from saudia arabia ARAMCO, i have been assigned to find crude alternate of Arab light that will suitable for lube base oil production. I searched but unable to find the crude alternate of Arab light although we found iranian light is same as arab light but due to sanction we cannot buy crude from there. In Pakistan we are the only one that produce lube oil so we don't have any references. Please suggest from your experiences and reference what other crude is process in rest of the world to produce lube base oil.

    Arab light crude assay is attached.
