HOUSTON, US: Chevron Lummus Global (CLG) has been awarded a sizeable license and engineering contract for a 270 TMTPA (thousand metric tons per annum) lubricants base oil plant at Indian Oil’s Haldia Refinery in West Bengal, India.

CLG is a joint venture of McDermott and Chevron.

The plant will use CLG's ISODEWAXING and ISOFINISHING technologies.

The Haldia unit will be designed to primarily produce premium API Group III base oils by processing unconverted oil from an upstream hydrocracking unit. Growth is projected in India's base oil market, and the new unit will help reduce dependence on imported base oils.

"CLG's lubricants technologies provide worldwide licensees with vast commercial experience, superior performance and optimum utilization of existing assets," said Leon de Bruyn, Senior Vice President of McDermott's Lummus Technology business.
