HOUSTON, US: ExxonMobil Chemical Synthetics said that it is significantly increasing low viscosity polyalphaolefin synthetic base stocks production capacity and further improving the reliability of its global supply chain network.

Investment in manufacturing facilities has resulted in significantly increased LoVis PAO production capacity in France, bringing total plant capacity to 105 kilo-tons per year. In addition, to help improve delivery and reliability for customers, the company upgraded and expanded its worldwide supply hubs and transportation systems.

Global leadership in manufacturing capacity:

  • Low-viscosity PAO – an annual global capacity of 209,000 tons
  • High-viscosity PAO – an annual global capacity of 92,000 tons
  • Esters and Alkylated Naphthalenes – an annual global capacity of 67,000 tons

An increase in production capacity is supported by continual improvements in our supply chain network. ISO hubs have been expanded, inventory has been forward-deployed in crucial areas and a renewed emphasis has been placed on planning and optimizing trucking, shipping and rail operations while upgrading carriers, all supported by a very robust and proven business continuity planning (BCP). This results in a stable, secure and growing supply of synthetic base stocks on a global scale, improved delivery speed and increased supply reliability for customers.

“Our customers demand a growing reliable supply of high performance synthetic base stocks that enable them to innovate confidently. Investing in our production facilities and supply chain capabilities allows us to stay at the forefront of the base stocks industry and meet our customer’s long-term ambitions as they grow their business,” said Hesham Omar, vice president of ExxonMobil Synthetics.
