Lubrizol and Greyrock Energy Inc. recently entered into an agreement by which Lubrizol will supply cold-weather diesel fuel additives for Greyrock’s distributed natural gas to liquids (GTL) technologies. The additives will allow Greyrock to meet seasonal and regional specifications for diesel fuels sold and distributed in the continental United States.
"We are very excited about this partnership," says Robert Schuetzle, Greyrock chief executive officer. "Our distributed natural gas to liquids platform produces a zero-sulfur, high-quality diesel fuel that significantly exceeds ASTM D975 standards in critical areas such as cetane, sulfur and lubricity. The custom additive package developed by Lubrizol will ensure that our diesel fuel meets the different regional and seasonal specifications in all U.S. markets."
As a leader in advanced additive technologies, Lubrizol helps customers bring differentiated fuels to the market. Through the new partnership with Greyrock, Lubrizol will be expanding its leadership into synthetic fuels produced from natural gas.
"Lubrizol expertise in cold-flow technology will help enable year-round production and effectiveness of Greyrock’s new diesel fuel technology," explains John Taracha, Lubrizol diesel additives product manager. "This partnership will help contribute to the increased availability of domestic fuel production and provide for flexibility of its use during the critical winter season."
