BRISBANE (ICIS)--Taiwan’s CPC-Shell Lubricants is expected to resume its Group I base oils production from end-June to early July following a partial unit shutdown, a company source said on Thursday.
The company shut the 120,000 tonne/year production line for low-viscosity Group I base oils at its 250,000 tonne/year plant at Kaohsiung in early June, the source said.
The company is running the 130,000 tonne/year production line for high-viscosity Group I grades normally, added the source.
The company is likely to offer spot cargoes only by August, he added.
CPC-Shell Lubricants is capable of producing mainly Group I SN150, SN500 and BS150 base oils.
