Jakarta (ANTARA News) - ExxonMobil Lubricant has contributed to the success of the renewable energy program 2025 in Indonesia.

"To support the achievement of renewable energy program by 2025, we are introducing a lubricant for engines operating using natural gas," General Manager of Indonesia Business Venture, ExxonMobil Lubricants Indonesia, Sigit Wagiyo, said here on Tuesday.

He explained that Indonesia has not had a development for gas-based engine till date. Hence, the use of lubricant is still in the introductory stage.

Sigit stated that despite business competition, the industry players should take into account the efficiency, both in terms of techniques and productivity, in order to improve the companys performance.

In Texas, US, an energy company operates Waukesha 9390 machine for extracting natural gas from debris and other solid formulations in a safe and environmentally friendly manner.

By using Mobil SHC Pegasus Lubricant 30, which is proposed by an ExxonMobil Field Technician, the company managed to extend its lubricant changing period, reduce equipment downtime, increase productivity, as well as boost annual savings of US$24,000.(*)
