In November 2007, GS Caltex began base oil production with 16,000BPSD capacity.
As of 2010, its production capacity holds 23,000 BPSD; GS Caltex expanded its
base oil production capacity to 26,000 BPSD through revamping of its Base Oil
Plant in 2011. By using the latest cutting edge hydrocracking technology, GS
Caltex produces high quality environment-friendly base oil which satisfies
challenging specifications of lubricant manufacturers. GS Caltex has been
exporting more than 70% of its total base oil production to overseas. As base
oil demand in Asia continuously increases, GS Caltex aims to be the influential
and dominant supplier of high quality base oil in Asia through further
expansions and improvements.
The need for lubricant marketers to meet more stringent regulatory standards and
challenging specifications is growing. The ongoing shift to higher quality
automotive lubricants is driven mainly by the automobile industry’s increasingly
demanding requirements such as severe vehicle emission standards. Industrial
demand is also moving towards HVI hydraulic fluids and high oxidation stability
turbine oils. Since more than 80% of the content of lubricants consists of base
oil, higher quality base oil is essential in producing higher quality
lubricants. GS Caltex Group II/III base oil can give the optimal solution for
top quality lubricants which conventional base oils are not able to provide.
Through ingenuity in facility design, GS Caltex has the flexibility to control
the desired amount of production of Group II and Group III base oil. GS Caltex
can also produce high quality heavy grade base oil to replace white Oil and
bright stock. GS Caltex Group II/III base oil has excellent low temperature
properties and exceptionally bright white clear transparent qualities. The Group
II/III base oil produced by GS Caltex is environment-friendly with low
volatility, reducing oil consumption and improving fuel economy. And GS Caltex
offers high thermal and oxidation stability to support drain interval extension.
All these advantages are the result from the latest cutting edge hydrocracking
technology. These benefits help GS Caltex adapt more efficiently to changing
market conditions and generate greater customer satisfaction.Kixx LUBO, the new
