ExxonMobil Introduces Next Generation Natural Gas Engine Oil

    New Mobil Pegasus 1005 Provides Superior Performance and Maximum
Protection for Extended Engine Life

    FAIRFAX, VA., June 27 /CNW/ - ExxonMobil today announced that a new
addition to its Mobil Pegasus Series of high-performance lubricants for
natural gas engines, Mobil Pegasus 1005, will be introduced worldwide.

    Formulated with the highest quality basestocks and advanced additive
technology, Mobil Pegasus 1005 is designed to provide today's high output,
low-emissions four cycle gas engines with exceptional levels of protection
while also delivering superior performance for older model engines.

    "To stay ahead of the competition in today's global industrial
marketplace, companies need to invest in products that are designed
specifically to help enhance the productivity and durability of their most
critical equipment," said Jeff Biamonte, ExxonMobil's global industrial
advisor. "Mobil Pegasus 1005 was developed through extensive laboratory and
engine bench testing, as well as comprehensive field tests with major OEMs
around the world, to ensure its exceptional performance capabilities over the
long haul."

    "This testing showed that Mobil Pegasus 1005 can provide double the oil
life, compared with previous mineral oil based Mobil Pegasus formulations,
thus helping companies reduce their oil consumption, oil disposal and
maintenance costs."

    With more than 40,000 hours of rigorous field testing, conducted with
customers and leading OEMs, Mobil Pegasus 1005 provides outstanding anti-wear
characteristics to protect heavily loaded valve train components while
maintaining compatibility with catalytic converter materials.

    "Its advanced detergent-dispersant system controls the formation of
carbon and varnish deposits to minimize oil consumption and maintain engine
cleanliness even during extended drain intervals," said Kevin McKenna,
ExxonMobil's product technical advisor. "Minimizing piston deposits and
controlling oil consumption are critical factors that went into the design and
development of Mobil Pegasus 1005."

    In addition, Mobil Pegasus 1005 provides exceptional oxidation stability,
nitration resistance and thermal stability, which helps to maintain the
highest level of engine cleanliness and can improve customer value by
enhancing equipment performance and durability.
