SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Sinopec Henan Oilfield is expected to restart its 50,000 tonne/year Group I base oils plant at Nanyang in Henan province, in north China, on 2 September, a company source said on Tuesday.
The company shut the plant on 26 August for maintenance, the source said, adding that some stocks will continue to be supplied in the local market.
However, the shutdown will not have significant impact on the Group I base oils markets in central and north ?xml:namespace>
Prices of Group I base oils are expected to firm in September as a result of rising demand from lubricant plants during the consumption peak, the sources added.
