Lukoil’s cylinder oil for ECA vessels maintains major OEM approvals

03 Jun 2020

Russian multinational energy corporation Lukoil on Tuesday (2 June) said its NAVIGO MCL Ultra remains one of few low BN cylinder oils that still have a valid ‘No Objection Letter (NOL)’ with all major OEMs. 

The company reported a leading OEM withdrew their approvals for almost all low BN oils in the market, while NAVIGO MCL Ultra has retained its status, and continues to be approved by all major OEMs.

LUKOIL’s NAVIGO MCL Ultra is a 20 BN cylinder oil developed specifically for vessels operating in Emission Control Areas (ECA), it explained. 

“To comply with emission regulations, ships in ECAs run on ultra-low Sulphur fuel <0.1%S (ULSFO) including gas. NAVIGO MCL Ultra continues to provide excellent results”, said Jan Thiedeitz, COO of LUKOIL Marine Lubricants.

“We still see it as the ideal choice for ULSFO fueled vessels, rather than a higher ash product such as a 40BN cylinder oil.”
