Reciprocating engines for power generation in the oil and gas sector

Learn more about how gas and diesel engines can be deployed at an oil and gas facility

Clarke Energy

Reciprocating engine generators can be deployed at oil and gas sites to support the resilience of a facility's operations, help to improve efficiency, and reduce carbon emissions.

Gas and diesel engines can be used for base-load power or for backup generation especially in remote locations where grid power is limited or unavailable. Gas engines also be used as combined heat and power units, to recover heat from the generators for use in boilers or for local processes.

Alternatively, surplus heat can be used in absorption chillers to deliver cooling for refrigeration or air conditioning, a process called trigeneration.

Emissions can be reduced by increasing the efficiency of electricity generation, from the reduction in flaring of waste gases and by the displacement of diesel as a source of backup power.

Gas engine fuel sources for oil and gas sector

The engines can accept a variety of sources of fuels such as natural gas, flare gas (also known as associated petroleum gas), coal bed methane / coal seam gas or liquified or compressed natural gas, diesel, and crude oil.

Possible areas the oil and gas sector may deploy gas and diesel engines:

  • Oil and gas wells
  • Hydrocarbon Separation plants
  • Drilling rigs
  • Gas compression plants
  • Dehydration stations
  • Oil treatment plants
