Mobil SHC Pegasus™ 30 gas engine oil

Situation

A US based energy company that extracts natural gas from shale and other tight formations in a safe and environmentally responsible way maintains its natural gas engines with the same philosophy. Company managers approached ExxonMobil engineers for a lubrication solution capable of extending engine oil drain and overhaul intervals while maximizing operational efficiency and overall productivity.

Recommendation

ExxonMobil engineers recommended the use of Mobil SHC Pegasus™ 30 natural gas engine oil. Formulated with the highest quality synthetic base stocks and advanced additive technology, Mobil SHC Pegasus™ 30 is specifically designed to increase fuel economy, minimize oil consumption, and provide enhanced wear and corrosion protection. ExxonMobil engineers also recommended Mobil Serv Lubricant Analysis and Mobil Natural Gas Engine Inspection services to monitor the condition of key engine components and extended service lubricant condition.

Result

After converting two of its Waukesha 9390 engines to Mobil SHC Pegasus™ 30 natural gas engine oil and implementing ExxonMobil’s monitoring services, the company successfully surpassed their 30,000 hour oil service target with no overhauls or filter changes, while noting improved engine cleanliness. In addition, the estimated 1.5% reduction in fuel consumption with Mobil SHC Pegasus™ 30 has helped the company reduce its CO2 emissions by a calculated amount of 40 tons/year per machine. Overall, switching to Mobil SHC Pegasus™ 30 gas engine oil has helped this company extend oil drain intervals on its natural gas engines, reduce equipment downtime, increase overall productivity and save an estimated $24,000 annually per engine.
