In addition to meeting the Norwegian authorities’ latest environmental requirements, ExxonMobil’s’ Mobil DTE 10 Excel Series of energy-efficient hydraulic oils address the demands of the latest hydraulic equipment, thanks to their formulation.

They are widely used in the offshore exploration and production sector to meet the extreme lubrication demands of a new generation of high-pressure industrial appliances.

“ExxonMobil has a strong history of supporting the oil and gas industry in the Nordic region with pioneering hydraulic fluid technologies,” said Ayman Ali, ExxonMobil Fuels & Lubricants’ oil and gas marketing advisor for the Europe, Africa and Middle East region. “It’s a significant milestone to have Mobil DTE 10 Excel hydraulic oils both HOCNF approved and registered in NEMS in Norway.  This endorsement confirms that ExxonMobil can offer its Mobil DTE 10 Excel Series providing exceptional offshore equipment protection in a strict regulatory environment.”

The potential benefits of Mobil DTE 10 Excel Series that are of particular relevance for the oil and gas industry include increased hydraulic efficiency, long equipment life and excellent keep-clean performance. The increased efficiency translates into reduced power consumption or increased machine output, and financial savings. Under both controlled laboratory testing and controlled field testing, Mobil DTE 10 Excel Series oils demonstrated up to six per cent improvement in hydraulic efficiency.

The series also performs exceptionally in a wide range of extreme temperatures, thanks to the oil’s high Viscosity Index. At high temperatures, Mobil DTE 10 Excel Series’ stability provides maximum lubrication to help operators keep their oil and gas operations and equipment at peak output. Conversely, the series’ low-temperature pumpability means reliable starting and pump protection down to -40ºC (DTE 10 Excel 15 and 22).

The four viscosity grades of Mobil DTE 10 Excel Series hydraulic oils which have gained HOCNF registration in Norway include the company’s 15, 22, 32 and 46 grades.
