Changing Over to Shell Lubricants
Although it is very rare to experience compatibility difficulties while changing lubricant suppliers, there remain differences in lubricant chemistry and properties that require care to be exercised at the time of changeover. This guidance note is intended to provide best practice to assist ship staff in systematically managing the risk of product changes when switching over to products from Shell Marine.

Shell’s commitment to research
Shell has been a technology pioneer for more than a century. Today, it is one of the largest investors in research and development among the international oil and gas companies.
43,000 technical and engineering staff
10 major research and development centres worldwide
We test hundreds of lubricant blends before finding the optimum formulation.
100s before blending the optimum formulation
The Shell Marine & Power Innovation Centre in Hamburg, Germany, is home to a dedicated team of experienced marine engineers and scientists.
Having their own marine engines at this centre enables the Shell experts to optimise formulations and develop marine engine oils that meet the requirements of today’s engine manufacturers.
We produce lubricants for a wide range of modern marine engines. Research and development shapes and enhances the technical services we offer.
Our flexible range of service options aims to cover all our customers’ needs.
Technical Services matching your needs and adding maximum value
Shell LubeAdvisor: Technical Support
Shell LubeExpert: Specialist advice
Shell LubeMonitor: Cylinder condition monitoring
Shell Rapid Lubricants Analysis: Laboratory analysis
Shell Marine technical services help operators to avoid costly failures by ensuring that they choose the right lubricants and use them correctly. Our technical team has more than 30 field- and office-based personnel. We offer a suite of technical services programmes to help you overcome operational complexities and reduce your operating costs.
Shell Rapid Lubricants Analysis can alert customers to wear and contaminants by monitoring the condition of lubricants and equipment over time. This means you can plan maintenance based on the equipment’s actual condition.
Recent advances in engine design and economy tuning, combined with slow-steaming practices, can greatly increase the risk of corrosive wear. Shell Marine offers products that help to protect against acid stress and the buildup of deposits. We also give customers an opportunity to monitor how these products are performing in their engines.
Shell LubeMonitor is a cylinder condition-monitoring programme that can help to optimise oil feed rates and reduce wear-related maintenance expenses. Regular monitoring of drain oil samples is a good way to optimise feed rates and to protect engines against excessive wear.
Using our Marine Connect software, the Shell LubeMonitor system manages all the data generated by the onboard analysis and then transfers the results easily and securely to Shell technical engineers.
Combining this data with analyses from the Shell Rapid Lubricants Analysis laboratories enables the Shell LubeMonitor team to produce a detailed report about engine performance and running condition.
Shell Marine’s technical experts quickly build a complete overview of the data. This enables them to provide informed updates on your engine’s running condition and make recommendations for optimising the oil feed rate and so contribute to reduced running and maintenance costs.
We offer world-class lubricant products and services and support to over 10,000 vessels, in 700 plus ports across 59 countries.

Next Generation Shell Argina and Shell Gadinia
Protecting engines and keeping the oceans open for business
Marcus Schaerer, Global Marketing Manager Marine, Shell Marine
The shipping industry is quite diverse. I mean, medium-speed trunk piston engines you find in the smallest shipping vessels and in the biggest cruise ships on this planet. Hence, there are obviously a lot of different challenges. What is surely similar for all segments is a big focus on cost.
Richard Holdsworth, Global Marketing and Product Development Manager, Marine and Power Engine Oils
And at the same time they are facing a storm of changes in terms of legislation. So, recently, the IMO has has confirmed that in 2020 there will be a sulphur cap of 0.5%, but that is just the latest in the wave of changes.
The whole Shell Argina and Gadinia range has always been a very appreciated and high-performing series of lubricants. Nevertheless, we talk to OEMs and we talk to our customers and we realise that the next generation of engines will work with higher temperatures, will work with higher pressure and might require a different and new oil.
John Schakel, Global Product Application Specialist, Marine
The modern engines have a higher brake mean effective pressure, and higher maximum combustion pressures, and the sumps are smaller. On top of that the oil consumption of the engines is smaller to reduce emissions which means that a smaller amount of oil needs to do more work.
Luis Garcia, Technology Manager, Marine and Power Engine Oils
The development process, of course you can do it quickly, but maybe it would not be very good.
You probably need, let us say, one year of proving ideas, concepts, testing for new components or looking at the chemistries, and base oils, and the combinations to see how you improve either oxidation stability or thermal stress stability – the many different aspects that you can see in single laboratory tests.
But one thing that Shell does, and it is key, it is really key and pretty much unique in the industry, is that we have an engine lab. With this testing, you really ensure that when you go into the field, you will have a success story.
We are very happy that we have a close relationship with a number of customers who trust us so much that they offer their assets for our testing. Besides this, this is obviously done in close relationships with OEMs.
With the new Shell Argina S5, were have really created a product which is stronger in these aspects, that consumes alkalinity reserves slower, and that prevents fast thickening. With this we will enable customers to use less oil.
Shell Gadinia S3 has a number of benefits for our customers. First of all, it is a high-performing lubricant that, especially on smaller ships, can more or less be used for all applications on the ship.
So it not only reduces complexity and reduces cost, it also makes the life of the people on board much simpler.
At least 300,000 litres of test oil have been used. And all this testing has not been done only for the sake of testing, I mean it has been done together with the customers for helping their operations. Customers are already talking about, how, in some cases, they see how with the new Shell Gadinia they consume less oil. We have one of the trials consuming I think in some days up to 20 litres less oil a day compared to their previous situation.
The benefits that customers see of using new Shell Gadinia S3 is that they have cleaner engines, they have a lower oil consumption and, because of the application in the gearbox, they have less oil onboard.
Lower Oil Consumption
Less Oils Onboard
Over the past year while we’ve been running field trials, we have seen excellent performance from the new Shell Gadinia in engines operating in marine applications. Particularly, we have been very, very pleased about its performance in terms of lacquer control, in terms of engine cleanliness, and in terms of wear performance.
