SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China is expected to receive 6,000 tonnes of spot Group III base oils from South Korea’s SK Lubricants in early August, a Chinese importer said on Tuesday.
The cargoes, including 4cst and 6cst grades, were traded $1,080-1,090/tonne (€810-818/tonne) FOB (free on board) South Korea, the importer said.
SK Lubricants plans to increase its offer for spot Group III cargoes delivered in late August and September to $1,120/tonne FOB in view of rising international crude prices, a company source said.
The company has two Group III base oils facilities in Ulsan with a combined capacity of 2.15m tonnes/year.
