ACI’s 2019 US Base Oils and Lubricants Summit

Date: 28th August 2019 - 29th August 2019 Location: New Orleans - Louisiana - USA

ACI’s 2019 US Base Oils & Lubricants Summit will be taking place in New Orleans, LA on 28th – 29th of August, 2019. The two day event will bring together professionals across the lubricant supply chain to address current industry issues, explore new opportunities and network with peers.

As regulations on the quality of both heavy-duty and passenger car motors oils become more strict, professionals across the entire lubricant spectrum can feel the impact. Join us and learn how leaders from base oil producers, lubricant blenders, additive manufacturers and original equipment manufacturers are confronting these challenges and pushing the boundaries of what modern lubricants are capable of.

Chevron’s state-of-the-art Group II base oil plant at the Pascagoula refinery is the newest Group II base oil plant in the United States.  It was designed to produce base oils with exactly the same specs as the two other refineries producing Chevron base oils in Richmond, California and Yeosu, S. Korea.

The Pascagoula Base Oil Plant, PBOP, has the capacity to produce approximately 25,000 barrels per day of Group II premium base oil for use in formulating high-performance lubricants for cars, trucks and heavy-duty equipment, as well as a broad range of industrial applications.

The plant uses Chevron’s ISODEWAXING technology, which was commercialized in 1993.  One of the key benefits of this technology is the ability to produce base stocks with properties approaching those of a synthetic base oil from a broad range of feedstocks.  More than half of the world’s premium base oil is manufactured with this technology.

To accommodate the distribution needs of the new base oil plant, the refinery added 16 new tanks, 2 new marine berths and new railcar loading facilities. Pascagoula is one of the leading refineries in the United States
