Shell, has developed a range of synthetic lubricants that offer better engine oiling potential than their natural counterparts.
Shell’s synthetic base oils enhance engine performance because their manufacturing process involves chemical processes which closely control the molecular structure and therefore the properties of the lubricant. Shell Helix Ultra, a fully synthetic oil, claims to be a five times better cleanser than a traditional mineral oil, to ensure three times more protection, and to reduce engine wear by up to half. The oil flows more easily at the engine’s start up temperature when most wear occurs, it is more resistant to the higher heats that build up inside the engine, and it is much less volatile than mineral oils and so it is able to perform under more extreme conditions than a standard mineral oil. The lubricant has these qualities because the synthetic nature of its manufacture means it is of a higher purity than mineral oils and has a more regular molecular composition. These qualities make it more popular amongst manufacturers, who can tailor the product to meet different modern engine requirements.
Shell is a global group of energy and petrochemical companies with an influence in more than 70 international markets, including those in the Middle East and in South Africa. Because of the United Arab Emirates ready oil supply, Shell in the UAE is involved in every stage of the petroleum manufacture chain, from discovery and production of oil and gas to its distribution and its marketing. Its advances in the lubricants market will only strengthen its position in this market.
The Middle East and African lubricants market was worth US$14.7 billion in 2013 and is projected to reach $17.9 billion by 2019, growing at a CAGR of 3.4% over the projected period. The Middle East and Africa market has experienced significant growth in the past few years and is expected to grow due to the increasing demand for lubricants in applications including passenger vehicles, commercial vehicles, aviation and marine and industrial machinery sectors. The development of tourism, mining, and quarrying industries in Africa, and the crude oil and natural gas and construction industries expansion in the Middle East is significantly contributing to the increase in lubricant demand in the region, with the transportation sector really driving the market.
