Welcome to Singapore for F+L Week 2019! This year we will be discussing the advanced and future technologies that will transform our industry starting in 2020 and for the next 25 years. Chevron Oronite will be sharing information relating to China VI and BS VI and how additive and lubricating oil technologies and formulations are being developed to meet these specifications. A new range of Oronite automotive additive packages are already in place that meets API and many OEM specifications to support your needs in both the passenger car as well as heavy duty vehicle segments. Another important development is in the marine sector where IMO’s new limit on Sulphur in fuel oil will be reduced to 0.50% m/m with effect January 2020. Various options are available to shipowners to adapt to the new regulations and Oronite additives for Marine and Power generation System (MAPS) offer a choice of solutions for Marine Cylinder Lubricants and Trunk Piston Engine Oils. While always looking ahead to provide additive solutions for advanced and future technologies, we take a pause to look back and congratulate F&L Asia on its 25th anniversary. We wish the team all the best and continued success for many more years to come.
