Choosing The Right Generator For Your Drilling Rig

  1. 1. Worldwide Power Products www.wpowerproducts.com Call us at 1-713-434-2300 Choosing The Right Generator For Your Drilling Rig
  2. 2. There is a seemingly endless amount of rigs and compatible generators. For each combination, there seems to be an equal amount of diverse and far-off oil fields to drill. Naturally, the mix- match nature of rigs, generators and oil fields can leave some of us in the industry, even seasoned experts, completely perplexed about which combination is best. WPP have found that regardless of whether a generator is meant for more desolate conditions, or a fairly routine drilling location, you can never consider enough variables. This is primarily due to the fact that once you commence drilling, a number of things can happen to throw you for a loop, which most notably include environmental factors, varying terrain, and any other unforeseen circumstances. » Call us at 1-713-434-2300 Worldwide Power Products www.wpowerproducts.com
  3. 3. Call us at 1-713-434-2300 Worldwide Power Products www.wpowerproducts.com The Essentials To Look For In The Right Generator Throughout our years in the industry we have come to realize that regardless of the job, conditions, or rig, there are always a few common things an on-site generator should have. To give you a better idea of what we mean, here are the things WPP look for in a good on-site generator. » Adaptability: A reliable generator is one that can prove itself in practically any situation, and under any circumstances. In other words, versatility is key when it comes to operating under varying environmental conditions, such as harsh heat, and other extreme weather.
  4. 4. Call us at 1-713-434-2300 Worldwide Power Products www.wpowerproducts.com Alternative Fuel Sources: Another useful quality that more modern and versatile generators share is the ability to run off other fuel sources than just diesel. For the longest time diesel generators dominated the industry, however, more recent innovations have been made, allowing generators to run off alternative fuel sources like methane and natural gas. Reliability: Drilling in the middle of nowhere can be ironic in that it is one of the most remote forms of work, yet it requires the most reliability in terms of power. If you and your team are hundreds of miles away from civilization and suddenly lose power, it can be catastrophic. For such reason, reliability in a generator is paramount.
  5. 5. Call us at 1-713-434-2300 Worldwide Power Products www.wpowerproducts.com Additional Things To Consider In A Generator Whether it is a single diesel generator, or several natural gas generators, a reliable model must provide power in the most extreme conditions, and in the most remote locations. In addition to performing under pressure, a good generator will require little maintenance, and hopefully zero downtime. In terms of operating expenses, maintenance can be costly, and downtime in the field can be even more expensive. Regardless of extra initial cost, a quality generator that does not breakdown, or require much maintenance, is crucial to the success of drilling. »
  6. 6. Call us at 1-713-434-2300 Worldwide Power Products www.wpowerproducts.com From my experience, one of the most underestimated traits of a quality generator is toughness. Powering a drill site is a lot different than powering a municipality or similar facility. On the job, a generator must withstand unstable and rough terrain, as well as constantly being surrounded by dirt and debris. Lastly, in the new age of strict regulatory standards, it is important to consider such performance aspects of a generator. In other words, if a generator is not performing properly, then it should either undergo necessary maintenance, or be replaced entirely in order to fulfill the regulations and requirements expected of it. »
  7. 7. Call us at 1-713-434-2300 Worldwide Power Products www.wpowerproducts.com Conclusion As high of expectations as we have for all the diesel and natural gas generators we sell at Worldwide Power Products, we are also absolutely amazed at how well they standup to harsh conditions and performance tests. A solid generator will never let you down under such conditions, and if it does, you need to find a better option. »
