ExxonMobil launches Mobil ServSM Lubricant Analysis in Middle East Oil & Gas sector
- Service helps to combat maintenance challenges associated with harsh and high-temperature environments
- Next generation used oil analysis program now easier and quicker to use
- Features include mobile app, scan-and-go technology and flexible analysis capabilities
ExxonMobil has launched Mobil ServSM Lubricant Analysis, a next generation used oil analysis service, which replaces ExxonMobil’s SignumSM Oil Analysis. The service can help to maximise productivity by enabling oil and gas operators to combat the maintenance challenges associated with the geographical conditions in the Middle East.
The remote and harsh environment of the Middle East desert can place oil and gas equipment under severe strain. This can pose significant maintenance challenges, potentially leading to unscheduled downtime of critical equipment and millions of dollars in cost.
Mobil Serv Lubricant Analysis can help engineers address these challenges. Lubricants play a key role in the performance and reliability of equipment. By examining changes in the oil analysis data over time, also known as “trending,” it is possible to better assess the condition of both the oil and the machine and help proactively address undesirable conditions before they become serious problems.
The program offers a comprehensive range of 25 different analysis options, allowing customers to track productivity and spot anomalies. When monitored regularly, the service can help to enhance equipment reliability and lubricant consumption. It can also help to extend oil drain intervals, which can reduce operational costs and improve safety by minimising intervention with machinery.
Mobil Serv Lubricant Analysis takes preventive maintenance to the next level by offering features such as a mobile app, scan-and-go bottles and flexible analysis capabilities. The introduction of the paperless scan-and-go technology with QR Codes* means that customers can now more quickly and easily deliver samples to ExxonMobil’s oil analysis laboratory. Results and customised equipment recommendations can now also be accessed via mobile or tablet devices using a cloud-based app. This benefit is particularly critical for the remote locations typical of oil and gas sites, ensuring that on-site engineers have full access to their accounts and can monitor performance virtually, regardless where they are based.
“Significant capital expenditure is required for oil and gas operations. Pair this with the harsh climate conditions of the Middle East and the potential impact on equipment, and it’s clear to see why site managers can’t afford to not invest in leading oil condition monitoring technology,” said Ayman Ali, ExxonMobil’s industrial marketing adviser for Europe, Africa and the Middle East. “The launch of this new service builds on ExxonMobil’s long tradition of providing innovative lubrication solutions, enabling companies to extend oil drain intervals and, in turn, benefit from reduced maintenance costs and improved efficiency.”
At ADIPEC, ExxonMobil will be showcasing Mobil Serv Lubricant Analysis and its extensive selection of advanced lubrication solutions, at stand A142.
