Caterpillar Oil & Gas Announces G3516J Gas Engine with Water Cooled Manifolds

Houston, Texas – Caterpillar Oil & Gas is pleased to announce open order board for the Cat® G3516J gas engine. Rated at 1029 bkW (1380 bhp) 1400 rpm, the updated engine features water cooled exhaust manifolds which significantly lower surface temperatures without sacrifice to horsepower or emissions.

“The G3516J is built on the proven reliability and durability of the G3500 engine platform,” said Bill Mermoud, market development consultant with Caterpillar Oil & Gas. “This year we are celebrating the thirty-fifth anniversary of our 3500 engine line and the excellent customer value this product line has delivered.” The Cat 3500 engine platform is a key part of Caterpillar’s successful line of gas compression engines and the market leader for power, performance, durability, versatility, sustainability and unrivaled support worldwide.

The G3516J has the ability to burn a wide spectrum of gaseous fuels and the robust diesel design prolongs life and lowers owning and operating costs. “The Ultra Lean Burn Technology (ULB) of the G3516J uses an advanced control system, an optimal turbo match, and a sophisticated combustion recipe to provide excellent air and fuel control. This allows for the lowest possible engine-out emissions, the highest fuel efficiency and improved altitude capability.” states Mermoud.

The G3516J gas engine is available now for order through the Cat® dealer network. For more information on this product and other solutions for the oil and gas industry, follow Caterpillar Oil & Gas on Facebook (, Twitter ( or on
