AD Base

At ADNOC, we produce around 3 million barrels of oil per day and process more than 900,000 barrels of condensate and crude oil.

Through ADNOC Refining, we produce 100,000 metric tons of Group II base oil and 500,000 metric tons of highly quality Group III base oil per year. This is marketed under the brand name of ADbase.

To assure quality and consistency of the highest standard, ADbase uses high paraffinic crude oil as feedstock to produce a consistently outstanding product, ideal for top tier lubricant manufacturers. 

AD Base brochure

ADbase has a high Viscosity Index (VI). This means it will thicken less as it gets cold and will thin out less at higher temperatures, providing better lubricant performance at both temperature extremes. ADbase also has Low Volatility (Noack) and a low Cold Cranking Simulator(CCS) viscosity. 

ADbase Group III base oil is considered by our customers to be one of, if not the highest quality Group III base oil.  Our superior quality product is matched by our focus on customer service. ADNOC has state of the art shipping facilities allowing us to accommodate different cargo sizes and types, and a dedicated customer service team that is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to work with our customers and ensure their needs are met.
