SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Iran’s Sepahan Oil has restarted its 400,000 tonne/year base oils unit in Isfahan province on Thursday, a day earlier than originally scheduled, according to a company source.

The refiner shut the plant during the first week of May and extended the shutdown from early June because of poor demand.

Sepahan Oil originally planned to restart the unit in early June after shutting it for maintenance for a month.

According to the market sources, the refiner will produce around 20,000 tonnes of pre-booked Group I SN500 base oils on 29 June-1 July.

Sepahan Oil produces Group I SN500 base oils, engine oils, industrial lubricants, automobile gear oils, greases and anti-freeze, paraffin, heavy slack wax and rubber processing oil at the Isfahan plant.
