‘Nitration of lubricating oil in natural gas engines’ - .PDF file.

As this article from Exxonmobil explains, nitration is an undesirable condition that indicates that the oil in natural-gas-fuelled engines is becoming saturated with the soluble and/or insoluble nitrogen oxide compounds. The reaction of nitrogen with the base oil forms two kinds of nitrogen compounds: organic nitrates and nitro compounds. They are independent of the oxy-products that lead to oil oxidation, which is another form of oil degradation.
