Caterpillar Oil & Gas delivers First Set of Electric Motors to Reagan Power and Compression

Caterpillar Oil & Gas is pleased to announce the delivery of its first order of two Cat® CN2586 2250 Hp electric motors to Reagan Power and Compression in Broussard, Louisiana earlier this month. The delivery was two of ultimately four units for this project. The additional units are in route and should arrive at Reagan’s facility for packaging in October. Once Reagan completes the package, they will be sent to a Matador Resources Company gas plant application in Loving, New Mexico.

While the rugged Cat engines have been racking up operating hours at global gas compression sites, the gas compression industry has evolved with more stringent local emissions regulations impacting operations.  “We’ve seen a growing trend towards the utilization of electric motors and drives in gas compression applications as shale gas proximity to areas serviced by utility power has grown,” said Edward Porras, account manager for Caterpillar Oil & Gas. “The Cat electric motors and drives complement Caterpillar’s existing product portfolio of gas compression reciprocating engines designed for the gas compression industry. We are excited to be delivering our first electric motor order, and look forward to building our relationship with Reagan Power,” said Porras

“Through the process of evaluating electric motors offered throughout the industry, the Caterpillar option provided significantly more value for the customer’s application,” said Jason Sowels from Reagan Power. “We are pleased with the level of ongoing technical and customer support we are getting from both Caterpillar and Louisiana Cat, the local Cat dealer.”

Every Cat electric motor is tested at each stage of production to make sure it performs reliably under load and according to any process requirements. Cat electric motors for gas compression are backed by the worldwide network of Cat dealers ready to support your operation with technical support, service, parts, and warranty.
