Meeting your challenges. Sharing your values.

Using our technical expertise in the Pulp & Paper industry, we’ve developed specialised products at our world-class R&T Centre in Turin. Designed to reduce maintenance costs and waste, products such as PETRONAS Circula PM help lower power consumption and CO2 levels. So if you’re as committed to sustainability as we are, that’s reassuring to know.

Efficiency from your people

It isn’t only in your equipment where you’ll find more efficiency. PLI offer technical training for key maintenance personnel – from the basic principles of lubrication and how to correctly lubricate a bearing, to the best ways to store oil products.

Less energy, more performance

Superior lubricants allow machinery to operate at maximum efficiency, reducing costs and allowing equipment to perform better, for longer. They also extend machine life and oil drain intervals, too – meaning less waste oil to dispose of.

Acting Responsibly

As a responsible business, PLI recognises and supports the increase in environmental awareness, standards and regulations applicable to the oil and gas industry. We are continually identifying areas for improvement across our operations and support our customers in doing the same.

Plant audits and Oil Analysis to help you ‘see inside’ your equipment

PETRONAS is more than just a provider of efficient products. For our customers we’re a trusted partner. Being proactive and identifying potential issues before they happen is critical in ensuring the smooth running of your business. Our technical experts can visit your plant, undertake detailed audits of your machinery, and provide a health check report that will give you the insights needed to improve performance, increase efficiencies and help prevent expensive downtime.
