Chevron Lummus Global LLC (CLG) has announced the start up Saudi Aramco’s Luberef II Yanbu Refinery Expansion Project using CLG’s all-hydroprocessing technologies for the production of premium Group II and Group III base oils.

CLG provided the license, basic engineering design and catalysts for its ISOCRACKING, ISODEWAXING and ISOFINISHING technologies at the refinery’s base oil units in order to produce high-quality Group II/III base oils.

Saudi Aramco has always been a producer of Group I base oils. CLG’s unit technology now allows Saudi Aramco Luberef to enter the market for Group II and Group III hydroprocessed base oils, allowing it to formulate premium lubricants for top-tier lubricants markets.

A major benefit for the region will be significant premium base oil supply to the west coast of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Arabian Peninsula. Luberef has decided to operate predominantly in Group II mode.
