Jakarta (ANTARA News) - ExxonMobil Lubricant is committed to enable Indonesias energy and gas industries to increase productivity as well as reduce operational costs and emissions.

"We are ready to assist the economic growth in Indonesia by presenting Mobil SHC Pegasus 30, which would help improve the productivity and profitability of the industry while reducing operational costs and emissions," President Director of ExxonMobil Lubricants Indonesia, Osman Durrani, stated here on Tuesday.

He explained that one of ExxonMobils products address the challenges of energy and gas industry by increasing efficiency, reducing the possibility of unexpected downtime, and increasing the resilience of industrial machines in the long term.

Thus, these efforts enable industry players to improve business competitiveness and performance of the company, he noted.

He explained the data from the Ministry of Industry showing natural gas to be the greatest energy need.

In 2025, natural gas is projected to absorb 1,360 million British thermal unit (mmbtu) energy, or 51.2 percent of the total energy used by the industrial sector. "This amount of energy requirement can be reduced if all parties carry out energy-efficient programs," Osman added.

Meanwhile, General Manager of Indonesia Business Venture, ExxonMobil Lubricants Indonesia, Sigit W. Wagito, noted that ExxonMobil also supports the 35 thousand megawatt power plant project.

"The energy and gas industry should increase competitiveness and productivity in order to achieve the industrial growth target, which is in line with the governments commitment to supply 35 thousand MW of electricity by 2019," he remarked.

Lubricant is an essential part of the engine performance. "We should ensure that the machine is oiled with the best lubricant to make it operate without disruption in the long term," Sigit pointed out.(*)
