Why next generation gas engines need next generation oils
Why next generation gas engines need next generation oils

Natural gas is one of the world’s fastest growing sources of energy. However, with fluctuating energy prices and more focus than ever on sustainability, market conditions are challenging. For gas engine owners and operators to ensure profitability, efficient operation is critical.

In an effort to increase power efficiency and reduce the cost of ownership, gas engine builders continue to push the boundaries of engine design. Many are now larger and more cost-effective to run, with emissions, such as carbon monoxide and NOx, down and power outputs up.

To achieve these results a number of operational fundamentals have changed. Many of the new generation of gas engines operate at higher pressures and combustion temperatures than previous models. Taken together, these features can trigger premature oil degradation, which can lead to shorter oil drain intervals, increased engine downtime and reduced power output. Given the volatile nature of the energy market, operators cannot afford for this to happen. 

Next generation gas engine oils

ExxonMobil works closely with leading equipment builders to develop next generation lubricants that meet the challenge of today’s high output gas engines. The most recently addition is the Mobil the Pegasus™ 1100 Series.
This includes Mobil Pegasus™ 1105 and Mobil Pegasus™ 1107, which are both formulated to extend oil drain intervals by up to 1.5 times*  when compared with conventional mineral oils. 

The series also possess outstanding anti-wear characteristics, helping reduce component damage and liner scuffing in highly loaded gas engines, and can help maintain engine cleanliness by cutting varnish formation and carbon deposits.

Mobil Pegasus 1107 is approved by Jenbacher for use in all versions of the series 2, 3 and 6 natural gas engines. Mobil Pegasus 1107 has received official approval from Caterpillar Energy Solutions for its use in its MWM TCG and Caterpillar CG gas engines.

* Mobil Pegasus 1105 and Mobil Pegasus 1107 are long life gas engine oils that have demonstrated up to 1.5X longer oil drain intervals versus competitor conventional mineral oils in high performance natural gas fuelled engines
