Engine Oil Production in Nigeria; The Feasibility Report.

Engine Oil Production in Nigeria; The Feasibility Report.

150,000.00

Engine / Lube oil is a substance (often a liquid) introduced between two moving surfaces to reduce the friction between them, improving efficiency and reducing wear. They may also have the function of dissolving or transporting foreign particles and of distributing heat.

Lubricants today are classified into two major groups: Automotive lubricants and Industrial lubricants. One of the single largest applications for lubricants, in the form of motor oil is to protect the internal combustion engines in motor vehicles and powered equipment. Practically lube oil contain 90% base oil (most often petroleum fractions, called mineral oils) and less than 10% additives.

Description

Engine / Lube oil is a substance (often a liquid) introduced between two moving surfaces to reduce the friction between them, improving efficiency and reducing wear. They may also have the function of dissolving or transporting foreign particles and of distributing heat.

Lubricants today are classified into two major groups: Automotive lubricants and Industrial lubricants. One of the single largest applications for lubricants, in the form of motor oil is to protect the internal combustion engines in motor vehicles and powered equipment. Practically lube oil contain 90% base oil (most often petroleum fractions, called mineral oils) and less than 10% additives.

Vegetable oils or synthetic liquids such as hydrogenated polyolefin, esters, silicones, fluorocarbons and many others are sometimes used as base oils. Additives deliver reduced friction and wear, increased viscosity, improved viscosity index, resistance to corrosion and oxidation, aging or contamination, etc. The basic functions of a lubricant are friction and wear reduction, heat removal and contaminant suspension.

Apart from important application in internal combustion engines, vehicles and industrial gear boxes, compressors, turbines or hydraulic systems, there are vast numbers of other applications, which mostly require specifically tailored lubricants.

Nigeria has an installed production capacity of 104,915,990 litres shared among 20 functional plants between the major oil marketers and independent marketers with a market turn-over in excess of N900billion as at 2008, and a profit margin of between N30 and N40billion.

Increasing economic development and rising middle income is set to stimulate the demand for passenger and commercial vehicles in Nigeria.

This report seeks to examine the financial viability or otherwise of establishing a lube oil blending plant in Nigeria using base oil as the basic raw material.

Machinery and equipment needed includes Lube Oil Plant, Project Vehicles, Generator, Forklift, Wood Pallets, Transformer AGO storage tank and weighing scale.
A typical blending plant comprises of the following sections 1- Tank farm, 2- Blending area and 3- Storage, Filling and Packing.

Base oils from the tank farm are pumped into the blending vessels and mixed with additives at the required temperature to obtain a homogenous mix. There are several methods to achieve optimum blend depending on the product and plant requirements.

The blended product is then filtered and transferred to storage tanks from where it is taken to the filling station and packed in containers. The entire process can be carried out in a basic manually operated plant or automated pc controlled plants. The filling lines are complimented by capping and induction sealers.

The capacity of the proposed plant is one hundred (100) tons for 20 hours per day. The plant would operate at 75% of the installed capacity for double (2) shifts of ten (10) hours each in the first, second, third, fourth and fifth year of operations respectively and producing 2,625 tons – 2,625,000 pcs of 1L multi-grade (SAE 20 W50) engine oil representing 70% of output, 750 tons – 187, 500 pcs of 4L multi-grade (SAE 20 W50) engine oil representing 20% of output and 375 tons – 15,000 pcs of 25L multi-grade (SAE 20 W50) engine oil representing 10% of output bi-monthly.
