Default Lubricating for Oilfield Engines

Was wondering what all the oilfield engine guys are using in their oilers for piston and rod lubrication. The Reid Type A engine manual speaks of using Western Paraffine Base, Pennsylvania Paraffine Base, or Western Asphalt Base. Also, viscosity is shown in Baume. Are paraffine based oils still manufactured?
