Oil and Gas

Industry-Leading Service in the Oil Field

With decades of service to the Texas and Oklahoma oil and gas industry – and backed by Caterpillar’s more than 80 years of developing oil and gas power solutions – Warren CAT has acquired the expertise and a broad, comprehensive perspective on the unique needs of oil and gas operators. Caterpillar® engines for oil and gas applications are designed to deliver outstanding durability, maximum dependability and innovative technology, while providing peak performance and greater cost control in the process.

Well Service

No segment of the petroleum industry presents quite the same set of challenges, opportunities and essential skills as oil well servicing. Desert heat. Bitter cold. Endless variables that are beyond your control. It’s a high-pressure business, full of unique applications and circumstances.

Cat® engines are just as specialized. They provide outstanding reliability across a wide range of available horsepower. They can run on almost any fuel (diesel, crude, natural gas, propane or almost any field gas), and meet the toughest worldwide emissions standards.

Dynamic Gas Blending (DGB)

Cat® Dynamic Gas Blending (DGB) engines for well service let you operate on the industry’s wide range of fuels, including CNG, LNG, pipeline gas and even field gas as an alternative to flaring. With Cat DGB engines, you could cut your diesel consumption by as much as 85%, while maintaining all the power, reliability and ease of maintenance of our diesel models.
