The first Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner, the newest and largest addition to the 787 family, was converted to Mobil Jet™ Oil 387, following its late March 2018 delivery to Singapore Airlines.
The converted components include the aircraft’s Rolls Royce Trent 1000 engines as well as its UTC Aerospace Systems (UTAS) variable frequency starter generators (VFSGs). Mobil Jet Oil 387 was approved for use in UTAS VFSGs in late 2017 and Singapore Airlines is the first commercial fleet to use the product.
Last year, ExxonMobil announced the use of Mobil Jet Oil 387 across the entire Singapore Airlines’ fleet, which includes a range of Airbus and Boeing wide-body models. As a result, the remaining 48 Boeing 787-10’s scheduled for delivery to Singapore Airlines are also confirmed to use Mobil Jet Oil 387.
Mobil Jet Oil 387 is the most advanced turbine engine oil ExxonMobil has ever produced and is known for its ability to deliver outstanding deposit control, oxidative stability and seal compatibility. It meets demanding industry specifications, including SAE AS5780 High Performance Capability and U.S. Military Specification MIL-PRF-23699-HTS. It is also approved for use by engine manufacturers in a wide range of models and components.
Mobil Jet Oil 387 is produced at the state-of-the-art Port Allen Aviation Lubricants Plant just outside Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The 90,000 ft² facility, which commenced operations in 2016, features advanced equipment and technology that enables ExxonMobil to produce a reliable supply of Mobil Jet oils and meet the increasing demands for high-performance, synthetic aviation lubricants.
