About Us About Us

Idemitsu has always strived to be more than an energy company.
Born in Japan,it was destined to be a part of the global community.
Idemitsu's mission is to energize the world through the production of gasoline,kerosene,lubricants and other petrochemicals.
By developing natural resources including oil,gas and coal.
With wind-power projects,biofuels,geothermal energy and other renewable sources.
And by advancing new technologies such as agri-bio and organic EL.
To make life better,we are energizing the world.

    Improvement by lubrication technology

  • Improvement by lubrication technology
  • Our lubricants have been developed by adding creative ideas to our customers experience on their production floors. We have developed and supplied optimum lubricants by reflecting the voice of our customers in our research and development activities. We now supply lubricants with the same quality throughout the world, not just in Japan.
Independent evaluation technology

Independent evaluation technology

We evaluate the performance of lubricant products by recreating the environment and the friction conditions of the machines in which the product will be used. This technology leads to prompt development of reliable products.

Practical performance evaluation

Practical performance evaluation

We confirm the performance of developed lubricant products using actual machines.

Testing and analysis

Testing and analysis

Using state-of-the-art equipment, we improve lubricant performance by analyzing lubricants used in tests or by customers, and the frictional surfaces associated with such lubricants.



We evaluate and analyze basic phenomena related to lubrication, such as friction, abrasion and lifetimes of mechanical parts, and use our accumulated technology as a theoretical basis for developing high-performance lubricants.

    Ecological lubricants

  • Ecological lubricants
  • As an integrated energy company that places importance on relationships with local communities, Idemitsu has been committed to environmental protection since its foundation. Our offices that handle lubricants (Head Office, Lubricants Research Laboratory, Chiba Refinery, Keihin Lube Center) were quick to obtain ISO 14001 certificates and have developed and supplied new environment-conscious products one after another by pursuing energy savings, prolonged lifetimes and reduction of hazardous materials.

Depletion of resources

We have guidelines for selecting optimal products to avoid waste and effectively use Earth's finite resources.

Acid rain and atmospheric pollution

Acid rain and atmospheric pollution are results of air contaminants released by the combustion of fossil fuels. Realizing lower energy usage by reducing friction loss also contributes towards preventing atmospheric contamination.

Soil and water pollution

We develop and supply lubricants with superb performance in terms of waste oil and waste solution treatment to prevent water and soil pollution, as well as long-lasting oils to suppress consumption and pollution.

Hazardous waste

We conduct various research and development activities to suppress the generation of hazardous waste during operation.

Depletion of ozone layer

We develop machining oils, refrigerant oils and detergents that are free of ozone-destructive Freon gases.

Global warming

By reducing frictional resistance, we avoid unnecessary combustion of fossil fuel, suppressing generation of CO2 and NOx, which in turn reduces acid rain and air pollution.
Environmental performance at the highest global standards

Idemitsu engine oils have achieved the highest grade, GF-5, of the ILSAC standard, which factors fuel economy into the API standard, an indicator of the grade of engine oil.
They provide the world's highest levels of quality and environmental performance.

Idemitsu Lube Singapore received the ODS (Ozone Depleting Substance)-Free Certification awarded by the Productivity Standard Board of Singapore.

API standard
* The API standard is a globally used oil standard developed by the American Petroleum Institute.
Having an API standard certificate is proof of quality and performance.

  • Global network of reliability

    Global network of reliability

  • Be supplying lubricants, Idemitsu has supported Japanese customers in expanding their business overseas for nearly 50 years.
    With supply systems established in key areas of the world, we now sell lubricants of identical quality throughout the world.
    We set up a product development network in each area of the world to address customer needs promptly and become a global partner relied on by customers worldwide.
