Caterpillar Oil & Gas is pleased to announce open order board for the Cat 3512E Tier 4 Final Land Electric Drilling engine. For over 35 years the Cat 3500 engine platform has been the industry gold standard for heavy-duty diesel and gas engines worldwide.  With more than 190,000 engines in the field and more than 3 billion operating hours in mining, rail, electric power, oil & gas, and marine applications, the 3500 exemplifies Caterpillar's long-standing commitment to technical innovation and the success of our customers.

Manufactured in Caterpillar's flagship Lafayette, IN facility, the 3512E engine meets EPA T4 final emission standards with the proven NOx reduction system (NRS) which is commonly referred to as exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) technology. NRS technology doesn't require a secondary fluid like diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) to meet emissions regulation. Caterpillar has been using NRS technology since 1977 to meet emission regulations. "Caterpillar has deep expertise in using both NRS and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology to meet T4 final emission regulations. For land drilling applications, NRS technology is better suited due to the highly demanding and remote nature of the applications," said Diana Hopkins, land drilling and production marketing manager for Caterpillar Oil & Gas.  

"The most critical requirement from our customers was to meet emission regulations with no disruption to operations, reliability and durability and with NRS technology we have delivered on that requirement," said Hopkins. "Moreover, we saw Tier 4 as an opportunity not only to meet emission requirements, but also to add value to our customers operations and we have done just that by using technologies to improve efficiency, reduce maintenance and overhaul requirements and most importantly, maintain the reliability and durability required for Land Drilling."

Built standard with Cat Product Link, its easy-to-use interface, called Product Link Web, allows insight into the operation, health, and productivity of your fleet. The 3512E also comes with Smart Engine Management System option, which automatically starts and stops engines on rigs to efficiently manage the power available on a rig. "Smart Engine Management System helps reduce the operating cost by operating the engines at its optimal load point and reducing the hours accumulated on engines," said Hopkins.

"Dysfunctional" oil and gas industry brings challenges for drillers: CAODC forecast

Despite a recovery in the price of oil, and LNG Canada's positive announcement early in Q4 that it would be building its LNG export facility, drilling activity in 2018 remained flat year-over-year. Once again the politicization of oil and gas infrastructure in Canada, along with increased taxation and regulatory requirements, resulted in significant delays and additional costs for Canadian producers, and sustained price differentials for Canadian crude blends.
