Maoming Petrochemical, a subsidiary of Chinese oil major Sinopec, is improving its current product lines by using better quality base oil stocks.

As of July this year, more than 92% of the 18,341 tons of base oil it used to produce lubricants were grade 1b or above, a 20% increase year-on-year.

Quality control and premium raw materials have been central to the company's strategy to offer better quality lubricants to Chinese consumers.

Like many Chinese producers, Maoming Petrochemical is responding to tightening emissions standards and public concern over environmental safety with eco-friendly, cost-effective products.

Formed in 1955, Sinopec Maoming Petrochemical Company is now Sinopec's most profitable subsidiary and boasts a crude oil processing capacity of 13.5m tons. Loctated in Maoming, Guangdong Province, Maoming Petrochemical also handles railway transport, crude oil and product transfer pipelines.
