SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Energy major ExxonMobil will raise term prices for all grades of Group I and II base oils by $30/tonne (€23/tonne) from 4 April this year, buyers said on Wednesday.
“We have received a notification that term prices will be further raised by $30/tonne across all grades of base oils,” a Singapore buyer said.
This follows ExxonMobil’s recent announcement in early March to raise the prices of heavier grades of base oils such as SN500 and brightstock by $30/tonne from 19 March.
Following ExxonMobil’s latest announcement, SN150 term prices rose by $30/tonne, SN500 term prices were up by $60/tonne and brightstock prices climbed by $60/tonne for the March-April period.
ExxonMobil could not be immediately reached for comment.
