Gas Compression Engines

Oil and gas producers have relied on Caterpillar since the industry's earliest days. For 60 years, we've powered the petroleum business on land. Now we go with it onto the ocean, hundred of miles out, thousands of feet down.

G3520B Low Emissions Gas Compression Engine

The line of G3500B engines brings versatility, uptime, and low operating cost to your gas compression operation. They deliver the lowest engine-out emissions in the industry without sacrificing performance. Ideal applications for G3500B engines include gas lift, gas gathering, and wellhead gas compression. Cat G3520B gas engine. Ratings: 1104-1286 bkW (1480-1725 bhp) @ 1200-1400 rpm are NSPS site compliant capable.
