Mobil SHC saves customer $18k

Situation

One of the nation’s largest natural gas pipeline service providers operates Caterpillar G3516 natural gas engines, with in-frame overhaul intervals of 50,000 hours. In an effort to reduce engine life-cycle costs, the company approached ExxonMobil engineers for an alternative lubricant solution capable of extending in-frame overhaul intervals.

Recommendation

After assessing the situation, ExxonMobil engineers recommended the use of Mobil SHC™ Pegasus 30 natural gas engine oil, which is formulated with high viscosity base fluids and a unique proprietary additive system, to provide improved operational efficiency and outstanding performance in extreme service applications, well beyond the capabilities of mineral oils.

Result

Since switching to Mobil SHC Pegasus 30 natural gas engine oil, the company reports that it has safely extended in-frame overhaul intervals from 50,000 hours to 57,500 hours – a 15 percent improvement. This has helped the customer reduce maintenance and labor costs, while increasing equipment availability. In addition, the company’s maintenance team was so impressed with the performance of Mobil SHC Pegasus 30 oil that it has decided to continue extending in-frame overhaul intervals even further.
