The turbine oil combines highly refined Group II base stocks and a unique additive package to minimize the formation of deposits in reservoirs, high-temperature bearings and other hot areas of the turbine. It also offers oxidation and thermal stability for long service life at severe temperatures with excellent varnish control.

Chevron announced in December last year that it had cancelled the port and shore support facility as the project has suffered long delays and would take another five years to complete _ too late to meet Chevron Corporation (NYSE:CVX)’s needs. Rising construction costs were another factor.
