02 - Our Group II and Group III Base Oils

aramcoPRIMA, aramcoULTRA premium, and aramcoPRIMA 60 specialty Base Oils

Motiva is proud to produce aramcoPRIMA and aramcoULTRA, high- performance, premium Group II and Group III Base Oils. Formulated to deliver the quality and dependability you need, our Base Oils are available in performance and viscosity grades used in lubricants for a variety of demanding automotive, industrial, and specialty fluid applications.

We also produce a specialty base oil, aramcoPRIMA 60, that is tailored for light viscosity applications.



We know what’s important to you, and we consistently deliver it. We optimize processing conditions to produce premium-quality base stocks with high saturates and low sulfur. Motiva's Base Oils are hydrotreated, Isomdewaxed, and hydrofinished to produce high VI, water-white paraffinic lube oils.

At our world-class refinery in Port Arthur, Texas, we operate our three hydroprocessing units using Motiva-patented unit designs to upgrade heavy gas oils into high-quality premium base oils. That gives us an edge when it comes to production uptime, and it means our customers can count on us to have available the base oils they need, when they need them.
