Situation
An Oklahoma-based natural gas pipeline service provider operates Caterpillar G316 natural gas engines, using 75 million cubic feet of natural gas per engine each year. Looking for a way to increase efficiency and reduce overall costs, the company approached ExxonMobil for an alternative lubricant solution capable of providing such improvements.

Recommendation
ExxonMobil engineers recommended the company switch to Mobil SHC Pegasus™ 30 synthetic natural gas engine oil. Formulated with high viscosity index base stocks and an advanced proprietary additive system, Mobil SHC Pegasus 30 provides modern gas engines long lasting protection with the added potential benefit of fuel consumption reductions and extended oil drain intervals, even in extreme service applications.

Result
Following the transition to Mobil SHC Pegasus 30 synthetic natural gas engine oil, the company reports a 1.5 percent increase in fuel efficiency, resulting in annual savings of US $3,938 per engine in natural gas fuel costs while reducing annual CO2 emissions by a calculated amount of 50 tons per engine.
