Onshore Oil Drilling Solutions

Extracting oil and gas presents a number of challenges. Difficult operational conditions such as extreme temperatures demand uncompromising durability, performance, and high efficiency. All at the same time.

Our decades of experience help to make our system expertise unique within the oil and gas industry. Among other things, our extensive knowledge means that all system components are perfectly suited to one another and work together seamlessly. This not only increases availability but also guarantees long maintenance intervals.

Our portfolio includes engines that are proven to maximize the efficiency and availability of onshore drilling equipment for oil and gas extraction. With power ratings ranging from 75 kW (Series 900) to 2,800 kW (Series 4000), they deliver the high performance needed for conventional and unconventional drilling of complex wells in extreme conditions. 

As well as their high levels of performance, our engines also have excellent fuel efficiency and long maintenance intervals which keep operating costs low. And advanced MTU emissions reduction technologies such as exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) enable them to easily fulfill EPA Tier 4 emission standards.
