Shell plans to build lubricants blending plant in Indonesia

Shell has announced plans to build a lubricants blending plant in Indonesia, with construction starting after completion of a tender process over the coming months.

The plant will be located at the Marunda Center, just north of Jakarta, and will reportedly produce a range of high-quality consumer, transport, industrial and marine lubricants.

It is expected to have a capacity of 120,000 tonnes per year, making it the largest lubricants blending plant operated by an international oil company in the country.
