BRISBANE (ICIS)--State-owned oil and gas company Indian Oil has raised its domestic prices for some grades of Group I base oils effective 1 August, market sources said on Friday.
The company’s prices for SN500 were increased by Indian rupees (Rs) 1.70/litre, while brightstock prices were raised by Rs2.40/litre, they said.
Prices of its SN70 and SN150 grades were unchanged.
The company last hiked base oil pries on 1 July.
Local sellers may have increased their prices in the domestic market because of the weakening Indian rupee and on the back of rising crude oil prices, traders said.
