New synthetic Gazprom Neft G-Energy oils secure approval from Mercedes Benz
Gazpromneft Lubricants, operator of the Gazprom Neft lubricants business, has been awarded the Daimler AG MB-Approval 229.3 (Mercedes Benz) for its G-Energy Synthetic Long Life 10W-40 oil.
This product, from the new G-Energy Synthetic range, has been developed from the company’s own synthetic API Group III base oils, giving greater corrosion resistance, meaning lubricants retain their performance characteristics for longer retain their performance characteristics for longer.
This new motor oil has been tested over a period of six months at cutting-edge accredited independent laboratories in Europe and the United States, under a programme involving engine and laboratory bench-testing, as well as physical and chemical tests — all of which have confirmed the product’s high quality, on a par with the best international alternatives.
Alexander Trukhan, CEO, Gazpromneft-Lubricants, commented: “Developing products, technologies, and joint initiatives with leading automotive and industrial equipment manufacturers are priority areas in our company’s work. We follow new trends in lubricants production closely, and take these into account in developing our own new products. Securing Mercedes Benz’ endorsement for our new G-Energy Synthetic range recognises the successful work not just of the specialists at our Science and Technology Centre, but of the entire team involved in developing this new line and bringing it to market.”
