Onshore Oil and Gas Solutions

MTU engines achieve a high-power output due to their excellent torque behavior, while they also offer outstanding efficiency through maximum uptime.

MTU engines deliver proven value for onshore oil and gas operations by maximizing efficiency and availability. With power ratings ranging between 75 kW (Series 900) and 2,800 kW (Series 4000), our oil field applications are ideal for powering drilling rigs and well-servicing equipment under extreme conditions. What’s more, excellent fuel efficiency and long maintenance intervals further reduce operating costs. MTU oil and gas engines also satisfy EPA Tier 4 emission standards with key MTU emissions reduction technologies such as exhaust gas recirculation and common rail injection. 

We’re well placed to meet your high demands because for decades our engines have reliably powered a range of products in diesel-electric, diesel-mechanical and diesel-hydraulic drive applications. Our extensive oil and gas industry experience and expertise is truly unique – especially in the way we apply it in the field. We ensure that all system components perfectly integrate with one another, thereby increasing availability, extending maintenance intervals and optimizing performance and efficiency.
