Take Advantage of Low-Cost, Onsite Natural Gas
A New Breed of Gas-Driven Engines Can Go Anywhere
Oilfield operations across the world unlock plentiful natural gas supplies — and Enerflex’s power generation solutions put that low-cost fuel to work for operators. Fuel-flexible gas engines drive drill rigs, artificial lifts, pump jacks, compressor stations, gas processing plants, and entire work camps.
The Perfect Partner for Harsh, Remote, and Rugged Work Sites
High-performance, low-emission Enerflex gas engine genset modules are ideal for mobile and static applications, running on oilfield gas pulled straight from the ground, trucked-in liquefied natural gas (LNG) or compressed natural gas (CNG).
Enerflex gas engine genset modules will operate on a wide range of gas fuel quality, including high-BTU field gas, HD-5 propane, and ethane. The technology is tried and tested, durable, and able to withstand extreme temperatures — so it can replace existing diesel rigs.
Enerflex works with our customers to provide solutions that cater to high altitude, low emissions, rich-burn, lean-burn, and / or fuel flexibility needs.
Enerflex in Action

9 Gensets for Continuous Duty and Remote Oil and Gas Processing
Enerflex supplied nine containerized gensets for use in harsh desert conditions, with extreme day-to- night temperature changes. Five PWC1000S-HA and four PWC1200S-HA Waukesha VHP 1,200 RPM engines are fuelled by field gas from onsite oil and gas operations. Systems were optimized to deal with sand in the air, with Leroy-Somer generators, Sutton Stromart radiators, and Woodward Easygen controls, generating between 1,000 kW and 1,100 kW at between 480V and 4,160V.
The units were installed in three phases at three different sites. Reliable and continuous duty power generation is essential in this remote desert region with high ambient temperatures and heavily contaminated air. Enerflex designed a robust, modular solution serviced by the regional Enerflex team in the Middle East.

1.4 MW Prime Power Plant
A remote oil and gas installation required prime power that would comply with new carbon tax regulations. Enerflex installed two high-efficiency, 600V PJE 1,400 S Jenbacher J420 engines, each generating 1,400 kW at 1,800 RPM. Each genset was housed in its own structure, built to Enerflex’s Canadian climate specifications. The engines are dual continuous duty and fully synchronized to minimize downtime.
In addition to the engines, the Enerflex solution used Stamford generators, Sutton Stromart radiators, and DIA.NE XT4 and ComAp controls.
The package is designed for harsh environmental conditions, from the gensets themselves to the buildings that house them. Enerflex is also able to provide local maintenance to ensure continuous operation at any time of the year. The units have reduced the company’s liability to carbon taxation.
