Infineum invests $40M in Notre Dame de Gravenchon (NDG) plant to enhance supply

reliability for customers Infineum has announced the on-site arrival of a third Magnesium Sulfonate reactor at Port-Jérôme for installation and use at a lubricant additive plant operated by ExxonMobil Chemical France on behalf of Infineum.

This significant $40M investment will add reliability, improve operability, and continue to secure the supply of Infineum additives from this ExxonMobil site by allowing for continuous production during maintenance operations and improve the availability of the unit. The additional flexibility of this multipurpose reactor will add reliability to the entire process. This will ultimately secure, as well as increase, the production availability of important detergent components for Infineum additive products.

“We are pleased to be increasing reliability, efficiency, and available production capability for Infineum. This significant investment demonstrates Infineum’s strong commitment and confidence in the future of the

petrochemical platform of Gravenchon, a key player in the regional industry”, said Hervé Brouhard, Chemical Site Manager.

This fast-tracked project was delivered in about two years and will culminate in the installation of these modular units over the coming weeks, with the units expected to be mechanically complete by year end and fully approved in the first quarter of 2021.

“Infineum is committed to delivering against our brand aspiration of ‘Performance you can rely on’. The enhanced capability from this unit, from which the component is deployed in many formulations as a key enabler of performance in latest generation applications, will mean improved supply reliability for Infineum customers” said Chris Locke EVP Supply, Infineum.


ExxonMobil Basestocks Grows Branded Distributor Network with Quality Logistics Services Asia, extends relationship into Malaysia

ExxonMobil Asia Pacific Pte Ltd (EMAPPL) has appointed Quality Logistics Services Asia (QLSAsia), a wholly owned subsidiary of Quality Logistic Services Australia (QLSA), as its base oil distributor for Malaysia. QLSAsia plans to offer a range of Group I and Group II products including Core 150, Core 2500, EHC 50, EHC 110 and SN500.

As a distributor of ExxonMobil base stocks, QLSAsia will adhere to the company’s product integrity systems to ensure product quality and consistency. QLSA has been distributing ExxonMobil base stocks in Australia since 2011.

“We are excited to establish our relationship with QLSAsia to reach a wider range of customers in this

important market,” said Vipin Rana, ExxonMobil Asia Pacific Basestocks and Specialties Sales Manager.

“The Malaysian market has no local production of API Group I and limited Group II refining capacity,” said QLSAsia’s General Manager Ken Chua. “With this appointment, QLSAsia will hold inventory of ExxonMobil basestocks in Malaysia and supply via tank truck to Malaysian blenders. Malaysian blenders will have access to responsive and transparent customer service, supply chain and technical capability from the ExxonMobil and QLSA relationship.”
