ADNOC and Xiamen sign a long-term agreement for ADbase

15 April 2019

The Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) has announced recently that it has concluded a significant long-term sales agreement with the Xiamen Sinolook Oil Co. Ltd., of China, for its high-quality base oil, ADbase.

Murban, Abu Dhabi’s light, high paraffinic crude, is used as feedstock for ADNOC’s Base Oil plant in Ruwais, which ensures a consistent, high-quality product. ADbase has a high Viscosity Index (VI) making it an ideal lubricant component, ensuring efficiency and fuel economy for high-performance engines, while meeting ever-stringent environmental regulations.

ADNOC has already completed API SN approval, GM Dexos 1, ILSAC GF-5, and 0w-20 for full synthetic motor oils, and is actively working with additive companies to achieve Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) and European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA) formulation approvals.
