At this year’s Offshore Technology Conference (OTC), taking place from 16-19 August 2021 at Houston, Texas, Caterpillar Oil & Gas will showcase ESG-focused products and solutions with Solar Turbines and the newest addition to the family of Caterpillar companies, SPM Oil & Gas which was acquired this February
Conference attendees can speak with representatives to learn about products and solutions that help operators power electrification, provide hybrid flexibility and lower their carbon footprint and costs through fuel flexibility.
For nearly a century, Caterpillar has been working with customers to solve big problems—innovating, integrating, and tailoring solutions that help build a better world. Today’s environmental, safety and governance (ESG) requirements are no exception.
Products such as the award-winning Cat 3512E DGB Tier 4 Final engine benefit operators by providing increased performance with 85% diesel displacement, a factory-installed dual fuel solution, and overall lower owning and operating costs. This game-changing engine is the first U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final dual fuel certified engine and is designed to supply customers with the industry’s latest technological advancements by keeping displacement high and emissions low.
The new Cat G3520 Non-Road mobile gas genset (NRM) provides even more ways for customers to optimise their operation and lower fuel consumption and emissions. With a rated power of 2.5 eMW, this gas genset is designed to minimise ESG footprint by lowering NOx and CO2e, decrease flared gas, and reduce fuel costs.
By integrating conventional and low-carbon power solutions such as the Cat Power Grid Stabilisation (PGS), customers can maximise power output efficiently and flexibly. The Cat PGS Module is a scalable, rapidly deployable energy storage system with a heavy-duty battery structure. The PGS integrates with solar and other renewable sources to provide short-duration power when the renewable source is not available or virtual spinning reserve to optimise generator sets efficiency.
“At Solar, we continue to innovate and bring sustainable solutions to the industry. A great example is the SMT60, our 5MW block of mobile scalable power, which responds to the oilfield need for mobility, quick set up, and teardown. Powered by our industry leading Taurus 60 gas turbine, the SMT60 operates on a wide variety of fuels including field gas which would otherwise be flared,” said Kenneth Rumsey, oil and gas marketing manager at Solar Turbines.
“We continue to invest in digital capabilities with the Solar InSight Platform, providing an ecosystem of services, which can extend the life of our customer’s turbomachinery to maximise profitability and performance while improving the standards for efficiency, safety and regulatory compliance.”
“SPM Oil & Gas remains intensely focused on helping oil and gas companies deliver the energy that powers communities and the economy while reducing costs and environmental impacts,” stated Paul Coppinger, president of SPM Oil &Gas, a Caterpillar company.
“As a part of Caterpillar, we are uniquely positioned to provide optimised and customised end-to-end solutions from the engine to the wellhead. As one of the only companies with natural gas or electric-powered 5,000-HP pumps operating in the field, we are actively providing technologies that reduce emissions while promoting efficiency gains for positive operations and bottom-line impact.”
