Marine Lubrication: improving procurement through to performance

Date: Tuesday 14 July - Time: 09:00-09:45 BST

The days of one contract manager in a corner office quietly handling a shipping company’s entire fuels and lubes requirements are numbered. Digitalisation means greater transparency and efficiency is available from procurement through to performance.

Join us as we cover

  • The new onus on the vessel owner and operator when it comes to lubes’ procurement
  • Data driven decision making made easy
  • Placing orders quickly and efficiently
  • Reducing low value and repetitive tasks
  • The role lubricant monitoring plays in energy efficiency measures
  • Manage costs. Improve fleet efficiency and performance
  • The keys to managing market uncertainty, including Coronavirus
  • What is my total cost of ownership?

Panellists include:

Grant Norton, Partnerships Director, Bulugo
Joseph Star, Aviation & Marine Offer Advisor, ExxonMobil
John Kalafatides, Senior Director – Marine Lubricants & Specialty Chemicals/ Innovation, Drew Marine

Additive technology’s place in managing changing and challenging fuel properties, engine designs and vessel operating profiles

Join us as we cover


  • Corrosion, the latest generation of engines, and additives’ edge
  • The significance of changing trade patterns and fuel availability
  • Vessel operation when running on fuels from different suppliers or from different refineries owned by the same supplier
  • Switching lubricants: straightforward or costly and inconvenient?

Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants: safe or a safety hazard

Date: Thursday 16 July - Time: 09:00-09:45 BST

Watch now

Reported instances of possibly hundreds of propeller shaft stern tube bearings overheating, leading to the failure (wiping) of the white metal linings of the bearings have called into question the safety of Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants (EALs). This webinar assesses whether the concern is justified or misplaced?

Join us as we cover

  • Oil-lubricated stern tube failures: Why they happen. What you can do.
  • Why transient conditions need to be factored in
  • Is the void space seal option a viable alternative?
  • What makes for an acceptable stern tube lubricant?
  • Is it fair to characterise all EALs as the same
  • What recent testing on thermal stability (degradation), oxidation (ageing) and effect of water (hydrolysis), will reveal about the performances of different EALs

Panellists include:
Dr Patrick Galda, Head of PANOLIN Tec Center, PANOLIN INTERNATIONAL

Rob Harrison, Technical Services Manager, Shell Marine
Kevin Duncan, Market Applications Specialist – Energy Technologies, Croda Europe
