ExxonMobil has announced that Mobil JetTM Oil 387, a synthetic High Performance Capability turbine engine oil, has been approved by Pratt & Whitney for use in its PurePower® PW1100G-JM and PW1400G-JM Geared TurbofanTM engines, the company said.

PurePower PW1100G-JM engines power the A320neo aircraft, while the PW1400G-JM is used on the Irkut MC-21 mid-range airliner.
