Jaidah Group – one of the most influential and successful conglomerates operating in Qatar and long-time distributor of Shell lubricants – hosted a launch event and seminar in connection with Shell’s latest oil product – Shell Rimula R4X.

The launch event took place at the W Doha Hotel and was attended by ready- mix, transport, construction, and wholesale companies. Present at the event were Bengt Shultz, COO of Jaidah Group who opened the seminar, Shell’s Qatar Account Manager Wissam Kamel, and Mohamed Osman, Shell’s regional technical coach.

“Jaidah has had an extremely successful partnership with Shell for 35 years,” said Mr Mohamed Jaidah, Group Executive Director of Jaidah Group. “Through such partnership, Jaidah Group have brought into this market industry leading oil products, which have been the most sought after for its unmatched benefits.

“Thus, we are truly proud to launch in Qatar Shell’s latest product Rimula R4X and to continue building and nurturing such partnership with Shell for more years to come,” he added.

Targeted at providing drivers and fleet owners with a simple, versatile, one-oil solution, Shell Rimula R4X brings high performance at an affordable price, with the additional benefit of triple engine protection. Such protection include the three critical areas of acid, deposit and wear control, where rigorous testing and verification by leading industry experts and truck manufacturers showed that the product can offer up to 50 % more protection from acid corrosion, up to 50 per cent better engine cleanliness and up to 30 % better wear protection than is required to meet API and ACEA standard specifications.

Thus, Shell Rimula R4X also offers potential savings for drivers and fleet owners through longer oil drain, longer vehicle life and reduced maintenance costs that meet a wider range of industry and original equipment manufacturers’ (OEMs’) specifications.

Shell Rimula R4X works effectively in the demanding environment of engines with Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR), where oil temperatures are higher. It is also suitable for all pre-US 2007 engines and most Euro IV and V engines (without diesel particulate filters), as well as for a  variety of earlier engine models.
