3rd Argus Iran Base Oils & Lubricants Conference

Join base oils industry leaders in Tehran on 17-18 April to share insight, network and do business

The 3rd Argus Iran Base Oils and Lubricants Conference is the exclusive platform in Iran focusing on challenges and opportunities in the trading of base oils, paraffin, RPO and wax, and the development, blending, procurement and marketing of lubricants. The third edition of the conference will be held on 18 April 2018, and will seek to build on the success of the first two events.

Iran holds a unique position as the largest producer and exporter of Group I base oils as well as a major importer for Group II and III base oils for its extensive local lubricant blending requirements. The conference will bring together more than 150 players within manufacturing, procurement, exports and sales to offer insight into market trends, enhance efficiency and provide guidance on how to do business in and with Iran.

Upon registering for the conference, you also receive access to the Argus Petroleum and Trade Logistics Day on 17th April, which covers topics such as feedstock pricing, sanctions relief and storage and logistics.
