ExxonMobil completes new grease and synthetic lubricants facilities in Singapore
ExxonMobil announced that it has completed its expansion project in Jurong to increase production of grease and synthetic lubricants, including Mobil 1TM, the company’s flagship synthetic engine oil. The milestone was recognised at an opening ceremony attended by Singapore Economic Development Board managing director Yeoh Keat Chuan.
The expansion of the Jurong lubricant plant further strengthens the company’s manufacturing capabilities and its ability to meet the growing demand for grease and synthetic lubricants products in the Asia Pacific region.
“These new grease and synthetic lubricants production facilities are strategically located close to key Asia Pacific markets, ensuring the reliable supply of these premium products to our customers. Our advanced lubricating oils and greases contribute to society’s broader sustainability objectives by helping to increase equipment operating efficiency and engine fuel economy, which contribute to reduced energy and resource use, as well as lower emissions,” said Teoh Song Ping, Asia Pacific lubricant sales director at ExxonMobil.
The grease plant started production in January 2017, and the synthetics plant, which was completed in March, started production in April following a successful commissioning.
