    Default PSO Oils. Carient

    I need your opinion experts.

    Does anyone have any idea about the lubricants PSO sells. I heard caltex and shell had their lubes blended at the same plant as PSO. So is there any difference in the oils ?
    Does anyone have any experience with PSO oils ??

    Shell, Caltex & PSO, TOTAL, MAL have their own blending plants in Karachi. Castrol, Fuchs are using Toll blending arrangements but with their own Formulation and additives. PSO have huge plant and its lubricants are blended on highest specs and can be used safely. ZIC plant is under construction and would be started after a year or so.

    PSO= 33,000 ton
    Other companies= 45,000 ton
    Misc & imported brands=55,000 ton
    Reclaimed & recycled = 70,000 ton
    Smuggled lubes= 13,000 ton

    Heavy duty Diesel EO= 42%
    Passenger car/motorcycle oil= 28%
    Industrial= 22%
    Misc=8%
    Of Car/M cycle oil= 90,000 t/y, 40% market has shifted to API SL or SM/SN. The trend towards high specs oil is growing with more awareness of the user.

    Hope these figure will help you to have some insight of Lubricant industry.
