About us

We have made it our business to release oil's true potential.

When you have a magical substance that can dissolve, purify, lubricate, cool, insulate, bind and protect – why would you burn it?

Nynas is a different kind of oil company. Working together with our customers, we tap into the full potential of oil to help create valuable applications for end-users and society. Wherever you look, you will see products and services made – or made possible by – using Nynas’ naphthenic oils and bitumen.

We have made it our business to unlock oil’s potential and provide value to our customers around the world.

Our business
