Shell Chosen As BMW Group’s Recommended Oil Supplier For Aftermarket Engine Oils

shellcarShell has been chosen by BMW AG as its only recommended global supplier for aftermarket engine oils for the following BMW brands: BMW, BMW i, BMW M, MINI and BMW Motorrad.

Beginning later this year, premium engine oils manufactured by Shell will be available to customers in BMW Group’s network of more than 3,500 dealers, in more than 140 countries, including China, Germany, Russia, South Africa, South Korea, the U.K. and the U.S.

Shell will produce and supply BMW’s branded engine oils, which will meet the latest BMW engine specifications and are underpinned by Shell’s PurePlus Technology. Shell PurePlus Technology is a patented gas-to-liquid (GTL) process, developed over 40 years of research, which converts natural gas into a crystal-clear base oil.

Base oil, usually made from crude oil, is the main component of finished oils and plays a vital role in the quality of finished engine oil. The base oil is produced at the Pearl GTL plant in Qatar, through a partnership between Shell and Qatar Petroleum. From 2015 on, BMW service customers benefit from the integration of Shell’s global lubricants supply chain with its gas value chain in Qatar.
