Shortly after releasing its full synthetic engine oil, Honeywell Synlube 5W-40, Honeywell Oil & Gas Ltd. announced plans to build mega-fuel stations in Nigeria. The company plans to open two mega stations in Nigeria every year for the next five years.
Aside from meeting growing demand in Nigeria for petroleum products, these mega stations will allow Honeywell to sell new products to the local market.
According to the company, Honeywell Synlube 5W-40 is designed for all modern turbocharged, high output gasoline and diesel engines of passenger cars, SUVs, light vans and trucks. It is made to deliver longer drain intervals and minimise engine deposits.
Sikiru Rufai, Honeywell’s Managing Director for Oil and Gas, said that the Honeywell Synlube 5W-40 has a license from the American Petroleum Institute.
Chief Operating Officer of Honeywell Oil and Gas, Tokunbo Amosu, said that Honeywell’s new engine oil and retail plan is in harmony with the government’s policy of encouraging the local production of cars that need premium-grade lubricants.
