Mobil Jet Oil takes off from new Port Allen lubricants plant

The 90,000-square-foot facility is part of a $200 million investment to expand ExxonMobil’s integrated chemical and lubricants complex in Baton Rouge, which is already one of the largest petrochemical hubs in the world.

“We anticipate that demand for advanced aviation fuels and lubricants will increase 55 percent by 2040,” said Nancy Carlson, vice president of aviation and marine at ExxonMobil Fuels and Lubricants. “The Port Allen plant will position ExxonMobil for growth, enabling the company to meet the emerging needs of the industry while integrating modern technologies to manufacture aviation engine oils for many years to come.”

It has a range of sustainable features to increase electrical energy efficiency, such as natural day-lighting panels, a comprehensive recycling program and dedicated water-treatment facilities.
