Pennzoil Introduces First Motor Oil Made from Natural Gas
April 17, 2014—Pennzoil on Wednesday launched the first-of-its-kind synthetic motor oil formulated from natural gas.
Pennzoil said its Platinum and Ultra Platinum motor oils use PurePlus Technology, which converts pure natural gas into full synthetic base oil.
"What we like about PurePlus Technology is that it starts with a base of pure, crystal clear base oil made from natural gas with fewer of the impurities found in crude oil, which is the traditional base for many other conventional and synthetic motor oils," said Chris Hayek, global brand director of Shell Lubricants Passenger Car Motor Oil. "Using this technology in our products helps Pennzoil provide motorists with one of the most advanced, premium motor oils on the market."
