Mobil Jet™ Oil 387 gains new approval with GP7200 engines

  • GP7200 engines approved for use on Airbus A380, the world’s largest passenger airliner
  • Test results confirm that Mobil Jet Oil 387’s balanced formulation and robust additive package make it well-suited for GP7200 engines
  • Mobil Jet Oil 387 has accrued more than one million hours of on-wing performance to-date

SPRING, Texas – ExxonMobil today announced that Mobil Jet Oil 387, a synthetic High Performance Capability (HPC) turbine engine oil, is now approved for use in GP7200 engines.

Developed by Engine Alliance, a joint venture between GE Aviation and Pratt & Whitney, GP7200 engines represent one of the two engine technologies approved for use on the Airbus A380, the world’s largest passenger airliner.

With this latest milestone, Mobil Jet Oil 387 is now fully approved for use in all propulsion engines and engine accessories used onboard Airbus A380 aircraft in operation around the world.

“We are now one step closer to achieving our goal of securing Mobil Jet Oil 387 approvals from all manufacturers that produce engine technologies for wide-body aircraft,” said Vipin Rana, global aviation lubricants sales manager at ExxonMobil. “This growing number of manufacturer approvals is leading to more airlines expressing interest in Mobil Jet Oil 387 as a lubricant solution for their diverse fleets.”

With its balanced formulation and robust anti-oxidant package, Mobil Jet Oil 387 is well-suited for GP7200 engine models. Results from various testing showed how even under extreme operating conditions and prolonged oil drain intervals, Mobil Jet Oil 387 can deliver outstanding engine cleanliness and oxidative stability, and exceptional seal protection.*

According to Rana, this approval is another clear example of how ExxonMobil formulators created Mobil Jet Oil 387 to deliver a combination of performance and benefits never previously achieved with an HTS/HPC turbine oil.

Since its commercial introduction in late 2012, Mobil Jet Oil 387 has accrued more than 1 million hours of on-wing performance. Today, it is used to protect more than 250 aircraft owned or leased by premium operators around the world.

Mobil Jet Oil 387 meets demanding industry specifications, including SAE AS5780 High Performance Capability and U.S. Military Specification MIL-PRF-23699-HTS. It is approved for use by engine manufacturers in a wide range of models and components.

All Mobil Jet™ oils, including Mobil Jet Oil 387, Mobil JetTM Oil II and Mobil JetTM Oil 254, are approved for use in GP7200 engine models.

Mobil Jet turbine lubricants are produced at ExxonMobil’s state-of-the-art Port Allen aviation lubricants plant outside Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The 90,000 square foot facility, which commenced operations in 2016, features advanced equipment and technologies that enable ExxonMobil to produce a reliable supply of Mobil Jet-branded oils and meet the increasing demand for high-performance synthetic aviation lubricants.
