Base Oils

Motiva operates a 40,000 barrel per day base oil manufacturing plant—one of the largest in the world—at its Port Arthur refinery.  The refinery is ISO 14001 certified and the base oil operations are ISO 9001 certified.

Motiva operates multiple lube hydroprocessing units using patented unit designs to upgrade heavy gas oils into high quality API Group II lubricant base oils and specialty products.  An extensive variety of approvals exist in Motiva STAR base oils, which are widely used to manufacture finished lubricants such as modern motor oils and high performance industrial lubricants.

With over 100 years of lube refining at Port Arthur, key quality initiatives and major lube projects in 1998, 2000, and 2006, demonstrate a continued commitment to meet customers’ growing needs for these high quality products.
