ExxonMobil develops energy-efficient gas engine oils

New Mobil SHC Pegasus is reported to deliver energy savings of up to 1.5%


ExxonMobil has introduced its Mobil SHC Pegasus Series, anew category of advanced technology oils designed to maximize natural gasengine component reliability, but with additional energy efficiency opportunities.Developed for optimum engine protection in natural gas engines, Mobil SHCPegasus Series is said to exhibit average energy savings of up to 1.5% inindependent universitylaboratory testing and statistically validated field tests. The energy savingswill also result in an equivalent reduction of CO2 emissions from gas enginesoperating with Mobil SHC Pegasus.

Controlled field testing in demanding gas compression applications has shown that Mobil SHC Pegasus drain intervals can exceed12,000 hours, or three to four times that of standard natural gas engine oils. ExxonMobilsays extending oil drain intervals can help reduce the amount of downtime anengine experiences, as well as reducing the amount of waste oil generated.

Theperformance characteristics of the new Mobil SHC Pegasus Series will, accordingto ExxonMobil, help foster an immediate improvement to companies' bottom linesthrough increased engine reliability, extended oil life-time, reducedmaintenance costs and lower fuel costs. Another benefit of this gas engine oilformulation is that it reportedly delivers the documented energy savingpotential without decreasing component life.

SHC Pegasus will be introduced worldwide in 2010.
