PETRONAS is involved in the manufacture of lubricants from the formulation to the marketing and distribution of a wide range of automotive and heavy duty engine oils, industrial and marine lubricants and transmission gear oils.

Our lubricants are marketed by PETRONAS Lubricants International Sdn Bhd (PLI) through an international distribution network. Our passenger car and motorcycle oils, PETRONAS Syntium and Sprinta respectively, are also sold at our network of retail stations.

PLI has formed strategic partnerships with international lubricant companies and has set up local marketing subsidiaries in Sudan, Indonesia, China, Thailand, Japan, India and Singapore to distribute its products globally, including with our South African subsidiary, Engen Ltd for the sub-Sahara African market. More recently, we have acquired Europe's largest independent producer of automotive lubricants and specialist fluids, FL SELENIA SpA, further paving the way for us into the global lubricants market especially in Europe, North America and South America.

Since 1995, PETRONAS’ involvement in Formula 1 Grand Prix sponsorship has also provided PETRONAS with a platform for lubricants research and development activities in partnership with Sauber, BMW and starting 2010 with Mercedes. Our motorsports involvement includes single-seater formula racing, GT and endurance racing, as well as motorcycle racing.
