Extend oil drain intervals and maximise power output for engines running on gases produced from waste

In 2015, gases produced from waste are making increasingly important contributions to the energy sector. However, these gases present new challenges for gas engine operators. Containing contaminants that can be corrosive to engines, these new gases can accelerate wear, compromising equipment life. The result? More frequent maintenance, increased downtime and reduced power output.

This webinar will explore the current landscape of the biogas market, new opportunities, and the challenges associated with gases from different sources - including landfill, animal waste and sewage. Site operators can hear first-hand how they can overcome challenges and take advantage of opportunities for more efficient - and profitable - power production.

Lubricants are an essential part of the solution - attendees will learn how selecting the correct lubricant can help mitigate the effects of the corrosive properties of gases produced from waste, and protect their engines against wear. Meeting these challenges will enable engine operators to maximise engine availability and, ultimately, to maximise power output.

Join ExxonMobil on 3 November to hear how you can improve your gas engine operations and ask the experts your questions about the buoyant biogas sector.

Kathy Tellier,

Advanced Engineering Associate – Products Technology, ExxonMobil Research and Engineering

Kathy Tellier, Advanced Engineering Associate, has held several engineering and product development positions during her 24 year career with ExxonMobil.

In Kathy's current capacity, she is the lead formulator for the Pegasus gas engine oil product line and is currently based in Paulsboro, NJ, USA. In this role, she is responsible for the development and testing of Mobil Pegasus™ 1005, Mobil SHC Pegasus™ and Mobil Pegasus 605 Ultra.

Kathy's formulation expertise has led to the development of the world's first energy efficient gas engine oil, Mobil SHC Pegasus. She has presented the performance advantages of this technology in several international conferences including PowerGen Europe, PowerGen Asia, CIMAC Congress and STLE. She also holds several patents in this area.

Kathy's latest formulation efforts have led to the successful introduction of Mobil Pegasus 605 Ultra, the next generation gas engine oil designed for high severity, landfill and biogas applications.

In her role as product formulator, Kathy is very involved in field testing of experimental products, validating product performance and interacting with gas engine original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

Prior to Kathy's 15 years in Products Technology, she was responsible for the design and selection of refinery rotating equipment and reliability improvement.

Kathy holds a M.S. in Ocean Engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and a B.S. in Ocean Engineering from SUNY Maritime College.
