ExxonMobil and Innio announced the release of Jenbacher N Oil 40 lubricant for all INNIO’s Jenbacher Type 2, 3, 4, 6 and 9 natural gas engines. This follows the collaboration agreement between the two companies that was announced earlier.

Jenbacher N Oil 40 has been developed to meet the evolving needs of natural gas engine lubrication, providing increased engine uptime and enhanced engine reliability, leading to more power generation and revenue potential. Benefits of the new technology include extended and unique condemning limits for longer drain intervals without compromising protection of critical engine parts and components. 

Monitoring oil consumption

Innio’s myPlant Asset Performance Management solution can be used to monitor oil consumption, exhaust gas temperature and oil change intervals along with the full offer of oil analyses, technical expertise and borescopic inspections of Mobil ServSM. These analytics will help predict oil lifetime and ensure the performance and protection of the gas engine, to provide a life cycle cost reduction of up to 30%.

“We have evaluated Jenbacher N Oil 40 in a long-term, multi-site testing programme with different situations (e.g. a German university, a Russian factory and a greenhouse facility in the UK).” said Andreas Kunz, Chief Technology Officer at INNIO Group, “The high performance lubricant was tested and validated over several Jenbacher engine types under the most demanding circumstances. The new oil has demonstrated its capabilities in each to help optimise oil consumption, reduce waste and lower spare parts costs.” 

“ExxonMobil and INNIO engineers focused on Innio Jenbacher gas engines lubrication requirements in more than 160,000 hours of field data across multiple engine platforms. This contributed to the development of the new Jenbacher N Oil 40 that helps to double both oil and filter life,” added Elisabetta Scossa, Europe Energy Manager of ExxonMobil. “In addition, operators will appreciate that this one lubricant can be used in the entire Jenbacher natural gas engine portfolio and therefore can optimise inventory costs for operators with multiple types of Jenbacher engines.”
