Technical Information - Blending & Packaging Plants

ADNOC Distribution has operated a state-of-the-art lubricants testing, blending and packaging plant since 1979. The operation has continually been upgraded and it is production capacity boosted over the years to meet the increasing customer demand for Adnoc lubricants in both the local and export markets. Today, ADNOC Distribution’s lubricant operation is regarded as one of the best blending and packaging plants in the region, and has a reputation for exceptional quality and performance results. ADNOC Distribution commissioned the construction of an adjacent petroleum plant in 1993, which manufactures a wide variety of high quality greases.

ADNOC Distribution maintains an advanced central laboratory, which houses the very latest quality control and precision equipment, used to conduct a wide variety of lube friction and purity tests.

ADNOC Distribution’s laboratory and capabilities extend far beyond production testing of lubricating oils. Customers have the option of submitting used oil to the lab, for detailed analysis and preventative equipment monitoring. A portion of the laboratory operation is dedicated to the QA/QC of ADNOC’s other petroleum products, such as aviation, gasoline, diesel and many other specialty fuels.

ADNOC’s blending facility also includes a sophisticated production and packaging center, with the ability to manufacture and fill metal drums (208 liter barrels), as well as smaller containers of four (4) and one (1) liter. The ability to customize the delivery of petroleum blends and containers has proven very popular with our customers, and demand has always been exceptional. The plant also features extensive storage facilities, which we make available to meet local and overseas commitments.
