ExxonMobil opens new lubricant testing lab in Singapore

US-based oil major ExxonMobil has announced it has opened a new lab in Singapore for testing lubricants as part of its Mobil Serv Lubricant Analysis.

The new lab will enable shipping operators to more easily gain insight into the performance of Mobil lubricant products on their vessels and get early warnings about potential mechanical issues.

The global marketing manager for marine and aviation at ExxonMobil, Glen Sharkowicz, said that the opening of the lab in Singapore:

“…will augment our Mobil Serv Lubricant Analysis offer and help our customers to save time and money, while boosting equipment reliability and productivity. It can save users as much as 66% of their sampling time, while providing the information they need to keep their equipment productive and minimise costly repairs.”

ExxonMobil clarified that the 66% reduction in sampling time was based on a single customer’s experience, so other customers’ experiences could vary. Speaking for Pacific International Lines (PIL), Fleet Division Head Goh Chung Hun said that the company had improved its operational cost-efficiency, thanks to working with ExxonMobil to optimise its lubricant use and monitor the health of equipment in its vessels.

The Mobil Serv Lubricant Analysis service is also available for industrial customers who want to monitor their Mobil gas engine oil or compressor oil, for example. Just like analysing a blood sample can help detect ailments at an early stage, in-service oil analysis can help assess equipment health and support operational efficiency, as well as inform decisions about when oil changes are actually needed.
