Shell Helix Ultra with PurePlus Technology

GTL Base Oils can be used for the manufacture of lubricants that keep vehicle engines, gearboxes and transmissions operating smoothly. Pearl GTL is one of the world’s largest sources of lubricant base oil with the capacity to produce about 30,000 barrels per day, enough to fill 225 million cars per year.

GTL Base Oils represent an entirely new way of producing synthetic base oils – the main component of lubricants – from natural gas. We market our gas-to-liquid process in the lubricants industry as Shell PurePlus Technology. It converts natural gas into crystal-clear base oils with virtually none of the impurities found in crude oil.
