Gas Compression

Caterpillar has a solution to fill your needs for gas compression. From the broadest range available of gas engine power ratings, to a full complement of electric motors, there’s a Cat® driver to fit your application.

Cat engines for gas compression have logged over two billion operating hours around the world. Put our experience and 24-7 support to work in your operation.  Built using the robustness of the proven Cat diesel platform, these gas-fueled units stand up to the most demanding gas and oil transportation applications, delivering 71 to 3990 bkW (95 to 5350 bhp) with virtually no unscheduled downtime.

Dependable ADEM™ electronic engine management reduces owning and operating costs with:

  • Precise control over key parameters for more efficient operation
  • Expanded monitoring and diagnostic engine protection capabilities
  • Reduced required maintenance and repair time
  • Longer overhaul intervals 
  • Emissions compliance solutions are available to meet your site-specific requirements anywhere in the world

 

Advanced combustion technology enables Cat gas engines to burn a variety of fuels. From pipeline-quality natural gas to raw wellhead gas, or from commercial propane to low-energy coal bed methane or biogas, there are Cat engines that can do the job.

Cat electric motors offer an alternative for locations where electric-powered drives are needed. With standard designs available from 1,100 to 4,050 bkW (1,500 to 5,500 bhp), documentation is available to get your project started right away. Need something a little different? Custom designs to suit your needs from 735 to 7,350 bkW (1,000 to 10,000 bhp) are available as well. 

Caterpillar also offers a wide range of fuel-efficient gas gensets and controls to provide power when the grid is not available or uneconomic.
