BMW AG Chooses Shell Lubricants as Recommended Oil Supplier

Shell Lubricants announced that it has been chosen by BMW AG as its only recommended global supplier for aftermarket engine oils for the following BMW brands: BMW, BMW i, BMW M, MINI and BMW Motorrad. From the start of 2015, premium engine oils manufactured by Shell will be available to customers at BMW Group's network of more than 3,500 dealers, in more than 140 countries, including China, Germany, Russia, South Africa, South Korea, the UK and the USA. The collaboration means that Shell will produce and supply BMW's branded engine oils. These products will meet the latest BMW engine specifications and are underpinned by Shell's PurePlus Technology. Shell PurePlus Technology is a breakthrough in how engine oils are formulated. It is a patented gas-to-liquid (GTL) process, developed over 40 years of research, which converts natural gas into a crystal-clear base oil. Base oil, usually made from crude oil, is the main component of finished oils and plays a vital role in the quality of the finished engine oil. The base oil is produced at the Pearl GTL plant in Qatar, a partnership between Shell and Qatar Petroleum. From 2015, BMW service customers benefit from the integration of Shell's global lubricants supply chain with its gas value chain in Qatar.

Pennzoil Reimagines Go-Karting with Real-World Mario Kart 8 Experience at SXSW

Pennzoil(R) to present Mario Karting Reimagined, a real-world racing experience based on the highly anticipated Mario Kart(TM) 8 video game for Wii U(TM), brought to life on the grounds of SXSW Interactive. As the Official Motor Oil & Auto Fuel Sponsor of the 2014 SXSW Interactive Festival, Pennzoil is introducing this innovative experience to consumers as a way to convey the innovation tied to Pennzoil Platinum(R) Full Synthetic Motor Oils with PurePlus(TM) Technology. Derived from pioneering technologies and creativity, Pennzoil was inspired by its love of cars and the Pennzoil Platinum line of motor oils featuring PurePlus Technology, a revolutionary process that converts natural gas into the high quality full synthetic base oil. The line of Pennzoil Platinum with PurePlus Technology are motor oils reimagined; delivering complete protection through the use of groundbreaking technology, which is as advanced as today's cutting-edge vehicles. Mario Karting Reimagined lets SXSW attendees get behind the wheel of a super-powered go-kart inspired by the Mario Kart 8 video game. For drivers to gain a competitive edge during the on-track experience, participants must collect the Pennzoil Complete Protection icons on the track that act as simulated power-ups, appearing in the form of Pennzoil branded icons to compliment some of the traditional Mario Kart 8 icons. The live racing will be broadcast on a jumbo-tron, with each go-kart's performance behaving normally until an icon is tripped on the track. Once activated, the go-kart will experience the effects of the icon in real-time to trigger speed boosts or slow the go-kart down.
