New York made an important step towards protecting the environment, as it sued five major oil companies, demanding ExxonMobil, Chevron, BP, Royal Dutch Shell and ConocoPhillips pay for the cost of protecting the city from the arising threat that the climate change poses.
ExxonMobil reveals its new MobilGard Cylinder Condition Monitoring programme which is designed to help optimise engine protection and reduce operating costs. The company says that data analysis can provide insight into feed rates, component wear and engine failure.
ExxonMobil has revealed its plans to start drilling its first deepwater exploration well on the Liberia-13 Block, located about 50 miles offshore of the country in November.
ExxonMobil’s Mobil SHC Aware Gear Series, a range of high performance Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants (EAL), has received approval by leading marine gear and seal manufacturers.
Thruster builders, including Nakashima, HHI Hyundai and KTE Nakashima Korea, have endorsed use of the oils following approvals by seal manufacturers Kemel, BVI and Hwaseung R&A.
