Our production capacity, multiple base oil production facilities worldwide, and logistics structure ensure that our base oils are available globally.
Reliable product supply is one of the cornerstones of our business. We have increased our production capacity over the last few years to meet the global demand for high-quality base oils – and are developing flexible commercial alternatives for meeting long-term demand growth.

Our base oil production started in the 1990s at our Porvoo refinery. Today, it also concentrates on the production of premium-quality, low-emission traffic fuels, with four production lines and more than 40 processing units.
In October 2011, Neste Base Oil, The Bahrain Petroleum Company (Bapco), and nogaholding started commercial production at the base oil plant in Bahrain. The joint venture in Bahrain produces premium quality VHVI (Very High Viscosity Index) Group III base oils for use in top-tier lubricants.
In 2019, we enhanced our production capacity by launching production at Chevron’s base oil plant in Richmond, California. This further increases the supply flexibility of Neste premium quality base oil.
All of our manufacturing sites are managed and operated according to ISO-9001, ISO-14001, and OHSAS 18001 standards.
