Business benefits

In times of rising operating costs, tighter production schedules and stricter environmental regulations, your fuel choice can greatly impact your productivity and business competitiveness.

Shell Fuel Oil Plus and Shell Fuel Oil Extra are advanced energy solutions for manufacturing, power generation and marine operations. They can help improve the reliability and performance of the entire fuel system1 - storage tank, boiler or low-speed engine, and flue-gas system. Your business benefits:

  • Lower operating costs
  • Reduced environmental impact
  • Improved reliability and performance
  • Reduced maintenance and downtime

Technical features

Fuel oil never burns completely and, with time, the build-up of deposits can be detrimental. Equipment can become less reliable, resulting in higher levels of waste, efficiency loss, unplanned shutdowns and more frequent maintenance.

To overcome these problems, Shell scientists have developed Shell Fuel Oil Plus and Shell Fuel Oil Extra.

Their special formulation includes:

  • A ‘keep clean’ component to help fight sludge and deposit formation in fuel storage tanks and fuel systems.
  • A combustion improver to help promote faster and more complete fuel combustion, helping to reduce particulate emissions and black smoke.
  • A higher estimated cetane number (ECN) than regular fuel oil, which promotes faster ignition and higher fuel efficiency.

This can help the fuel system, boiler or low-speed engine, and flue gas system to run more reliably and efficiently, while reducing environmental impact without the need for equipment modification.

What customers say

What customers say

“Panay Power Plant 1 realised significant savings by shifting from 2% sulphur fuel oil to Shell 3% sulphur Fuel Oil Plus... The combination of improved combustion characteristics and higher density of Shell Fuel Oil Plus relative to standard fuel oil enabled us to generate volume savings of approximately 6.5%.*”

Our most advanced fuel oils for industries

  • Lower operating costs

    Shell Fuel Oil Plus and Shell Fuel Oil Extra are designed to help improve fuel efficiency by up to 3%1 and in turn reduce fuel oil consumption.

  • Lower local emissions

    You can lower particulate emissions and black smoke by up to 70%1, without the need to tune your boiler or equipment, which may impact its efficiency. This, in turn, helps meet local legislative requirements and minimises the risk of fines.

  • Lower CO₂ emissions

    Shell Fuel Oil Plus and Shell Fuel Oil Extra work to promote more efficient combustion and, in turn, help reduce CO2 emissions1.

  • Reduced maintenance

    Thanks to their ‘keep clean’ component, Shell Fuel Oil Plus and Shell Fuel Oil Extra can make cleaning of your fuel system, boiler or low-speed engine, and flue-gas system and chimneys easier and less frequent, helping you save on maintenance costs1.

  • Improved reliability and performance

    With better combustion and improved heat transfer, your entire heat or power generation system can run more efficiently and reliably, leading to increased productivity for your business.
