Hyde Energy

The lubricant market in Nigeria has been disrupted with the introduction of automotive lubricant product range from Hyde Energy Limited, a global petroleum trading company with a downstream network in the country.

The new products were introduced to some trade partners, distributors, auto garages, haulage companies and spare parts dealers at an event held in Lagos recently.

Hyde Energy has continued to win the hearts of consumers in Nigeria and the company’s Regional Sales Manager and Head of Lubricants, Mr Victor Nwakaku, said this because the firm designed the product and service offerings based on the deep understanding of the costumers and operating environment.

“At Hyde Energy, we have a strong belief that using the right lubricant is a vital element in auto care, this is why we have devoted our time, expertise and innovation to creating a high quality range of lubricants suitable for all kinds of petrol and diesel automobile engines.

“These lubricants are manufactured under the highest quality conditions using materials that meet global standards,” he said.

“We are confident in introducing the newly launched Luminor and Maximus series to the market because they were conceived as industry solutions which will guarantee optimum engine performance,” Mr Nwakaku added.

The Luminor product range is a passenger car motor oil, while the Maximus range is a heavy-duty diesel engine oil which both feature a series of grades and are packaged in 1-litre, 4-litre, 5-litre and 25-litre dark grey, uniquely shaped containers with special safety and tamper-proof features to ensure product quality throughout distribution.

The range of Hyde lubricants is carefully formulated to serve numerous benefits including reducing friction and wear, enhancing protection for the machine, keeping temperatures low to reduce the risk of heat-related damage to the machine, improving engine life span, efficiency and reliability culminating in significant cost reduction.

The Luminor ZS9 which is at the zenith of the Luminor series was the product in focus at the forum. Being a fully synthetic engine oil with the most advanced protection for all modern engines, the Luminor ZS9 with its prolonged drainage intervals, (lasts three times longer), allows the machine to perform effectively for over 18,000 km resulting in massive cost savings for the customers.

It also delivers invaluable benefits including a better high and low-temperature viscosity performance at service temperature extremes, better chemical and shear stability, decreased evaporative loss and resistance to oxidation and oil sludge. In addition to this, customers are assured of improved fuel economy, reduced engine wear and increased engine efficiency.

Hyde Energy said its lubricants are formulated and blended to the highest standards to meet the needs of consumers across Sub-Saharan Africa for use in their industrial and transport machines including but not limited to petrol and light diesel engines, industrial and heavy-duty diesel engines and special-purpose engines.

According to the CEO of the company, Mr Oladimeji Edwards, “We have now expanded our portfolio and network to ensure we are providing revolutionary solutions and creating value throughout the oil and petroleum products value chain as we provide energy to keep you going from one day to the next.”

He said the firm, which was established in 2012 as an indigenous global petroleum company, has continued to enrich customer experience and meet their growing energy needs.

Mr Edwards noted that the vision of the organisation is to provide “quality and excellence in the products and service delivery” to all stakeholders.

Hyde Energy also provides value-added services to its lubricant partners including the Hyde Lubricant Monitoring Program which offers Oil Analysis As-A-Service; Lubricants surveys & trainings as well as Marketing support such as branding, POS materials and marketing campaigns.

With retail stations located in Lagos, Abuja, Calabar and still expanding, other products included in the Hyde Energy portfolio include Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), Automotive Gas Oil (AGO) and Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG). In addition to this, Hyde Energy also offers customers services such as Lube Bay, Car Wash and Minimart services at its retail stations.
