Shell recently held a groundbreaking ceremony at the site of its new lubricant oil blending plant in Indonesia. The ceremony was officiated by Indonesia's minister for industry Mohamad S. Hidayat, Shell's global commercial executive vice president Mark Gainsborough and Shell Indonesia president director Darwin Silalahi.

The plant, which will be built on 75,000 square meters of land in Marunda Center located just north of Jakarta, will supply a range of high-quality lubricants for consumer, transport, industrial and marine markets in Indonesia. The facility is expected to have a capacity of 120,000 tons per year, making it the country's largest lubricant blending plant operated by an international oil company.

The plant will incorporate world-class lubricant blending, filling and packaging technology, as well as meet high environmental standards, including measures to reduce waste and carefully control waste disposal. It will produce Shell's major brands like Helix, Advance, Rimula, Tellus, Spirax and Omala.

"This latest milestone marks our continuous commitment to Indonesia, working with the local and the national government to create more jobs for the local economy, and bring products made with the latest in Shell lubricant technology closer to our customers," said Silalahi.
