Shell PurePlus Technology

Motor oil made from natural gas
Today’s vehicles need a motor oil that keeps pace with their changing demands and does more to improve performance and engine life. This is why Shell came up with an entirely new way, starting with natural gas, to produce base oils; the main component of motor oils.

Shell PurePlus Technology
Shell PurePlus Technology is a revolutionary process that converts natural gas into crystal-clear base oil with virtually none of the impurities found in crude oil. Base oil makes up approximately 75-90% of a motor oil and so this is a significant step-change in the composition.

Shell PurePlus Technology produces base oil that provides enhanced viscosity, friction and volatility performance compared to more prominently used traditional base oils. This means it helps extend engine life, reduce maintenance costs, reduce oil consumption, enhance fuel economy and enable better engine cleanliness.

Innovation plus proven technology
Shell adds proprietary Active Cleansing Technology to the Shell PurePlus Technology base oil to create Shell Helix Ultra – our most advanced motor oil ever. This unique combination enables Shell Helix Ultra to provide even higher levels of cleansing and protection - meaning that no other motor oil keeps your engine closer to factory clean.
