Energy major ExxonMobil said it would expand base stock production at its Singapore refinery. Construction is expected to begin during the second quarter of 2017 with completion anticipated in 2019.
“Our new investment in Group II base stocks will enable our customers to blend lubricants that satisfy more stringent specifications, help reduce emissions, and improve fuel economy and low-temperature performance,” said Ted Walko, global basestock and specialties marketing manager at the company.
“This project, combined with the company’s construction of a hydrocracker unit currently under way in Rotterdam, demonstrates ExxonMobil’s commitment to delivering value to our customers through industry-leading, globally consistent base stock quality and supply reliability.”
Work also continues on a previously announced cogeneration project at the Singapore refinery, expected to be completed by the end of 2017
