Shell Opens Lubricant Plant in Singapore

Noria news wires

Shell recently opened a new lubricant and grease production facility in Singapore. At nearly 25 acres, the site is Shell's third largest lubricant plant in the world and the second largest in Asia-Pacific. It will be capable of producing more than 113 million gallons of lubricants and greases every year, which is enough to change the engine oil of more than 12,000 cars, every hour, every day.

"This state-of-the-art, highly automated facility in Singapore was built to support our business ambitions here in the APAC region," said Huibert Vigeveno, executive vice president of Shell Global Commercial. "It serves as a strategic production hub and will be the centerpiece of our lubricants supply chain network to reliably supply our world-class lubricants to millions of customers in the region. This facility will also further strengthen our marine lubricant business's presence here in Singapore, the world's second busiest port."

The new plant will be a production hub for products that will be shipped to more than 40 countries, mainly in the Asia-Pacific region. It will produce lubricants carrying Shell's globally renowned brands, such as Shell Helix (passenger car motor oil), Shell Rimula (heavy-duty engine oil), Shell Tellus (hydraulic oil), Shell Alexia (two-stroke marine engine oil) and Shell Gadus (greases).
