Shell holds a seminar on latest transformer oils with GST technology

Shell Lubricants Saudi Arabia recently held a seminar about its latest transformer and turbine oils — Shell Diala and Shell Turbo, with gas-to-liquids technology.

At the seminar, attended by representatives of more than 100 clients of the company, Shell introduced its complete line-up of oil and lubricant products for the power, petrochemical, and oil & gas sectors.

Shell’s gas-to-liquids (GTL) technology converts natural gas — the cleanest-burning fossil fuel — into high-quality liquid products that would otherwise be made from crude oil. GTL products are colourless and odourless, containing almost none of the impurities that are found in crude oil. 

Shell Lubricants Saudi Arabia also highlighted its technical services to customers through Shell Lube Adviser, which can advise companies on which oil to use to improve efficiency and reduce operating costs.

A presentation about GTL technology and its benefits was given by Peter Smith, global technology manager for industrial speciality lubricants.
