ILMA Partners with Argus to Offer an Exclusive Benefit for ILMA Members

The US base oils market continues to face major structural changes. These are creating challenges and opportunities and increase the importance of timely information and analysis to take advantage of these changes. More domestic US production, combined with increased imports of Group III supplies, has added to the oversupply of light-grade base oils. Several rounds of planned and unplanned refinery maintenance and increased exports have helped to balance the US base oil market in recent years. But those trends have—at times—limited the availability of certain light and heavy grades in the domestic market. At other times, they have resulted in surplus availability.
