What are Dual Fuel Conversion Kits?

Dual fuel conversion kits allow engines to operate on a combination of diesel and natural gas. The kit offers the oil and gas industry greater flexibility in choosing the most cost-effective and environmentally friendly fuel for their drilling rig and high-pressure pump operations. This flexibility can be particularly useful for remote locations where fuel availability may be limited. Dual fuel engines can provide increased reliability and redundancy for power generation in oil and gas operations. The ability to switch between diesel-only and dual fuel mode can help ensure that engines continue to operate even if the secondary fuel is not available.

The kit allows for secondary fuel, such as natural gas to process through the intake air stream and thus reduces diesel fuel costs. By outfitting engines like the Tier IV Cummins QSK-50 and Tier II Caterpillar 3512C, these kits can displace up to 50% of diesel fuel consumption. These conversions satisfy Memo 1A criteria requirements and ensure compliance with the EPA Tier IV Final regulatory standards.

The Dual Fuel Advantage

Regulatory Compliance

Dual fuel conversion kits enable engines to meet stringent compliance standards, which are crucial for modern-day operations. Our memo 1A testing results ensure your operations are environmentally responsible.

Operational Flexibility

One of the standout features of dual-fuel engines is their ability to switch seamlessly between dual-fuel and pure diesel modes. This flexibility is crucial in maintaining operational continuity, especially when the natural gas supply is interrupted or certain operating conditions are not met.

Reduced Downtime

Downtime is a critical concern in any upstream operation. With dual-fuel engines, the ability to switch to diesel ensures that operations continue smoothly without significant interruptions.

Dual Fuel Management: Beyond Simple Logistics

Managing a dual-fuel-enabled fleet is more complex than daisy chaining fluid lines across locations. It requires meticulous logistics and implementation to ensure seamless operation. Here’s how Comanche Gas Solutions ensures efficient natural gas fuel management:

Monitoring and Diagnostics

Our field technicians use advanced metrics to monitor substitution data continuously. With data acquisition and real-time monitoring, Comanche Gas Solutions equipment allows for immediate diagnosis and troubleshooting of any issues, ensuring maximum substitution of diesel with natural gas.

Optimizing Diesel Substitution

Effective fuel management involves four main ingredients: 1. natural gas enabled engines, 2. reliable gas supply, 3. natural gas distribution, and 4. safety. Are the engines meeting the correct parameters? Is natural gas available? Can the fueling equipment deliver appropriate gas pressures and volumes? Are there features and mechanisms present to prevent hazardous situations? Comanche Gas Solutions people and equipment can ensure the right answers.

Integrated Fueling Equipment Packages

By understanding each operation’s specific requirements, we deploy both diesel and natural gas equipment packages that make integrated business decisions easy. Do you want to blend field gas and deliver CNG? Comanche Gas Solutions Natural Gas Distribution System can handle both gas supplies.

Accommodating Various Engine Types

No fleet is created equal. With the mega-trend in the industry to utilize natural gas to accommodate horsepower, completions equipment providers mix and match engines all the time. This behavior ensures that the completions schedule starts on time; however, different engines have different inlet pressures. Comanche Gas Solutions’ proprietary equipment can accommodate the various pressure requirements.

Mobilization Turnaround

In upstream operations, efficiency between locations is critical. 24 to 36 hour rig moves are the standard. With easy-to-use features on Comanche Gas Solutions systems and the internal trucking division, the operations team strategically plans for mobilization to ensure operations continue without significant delays, maintaining high productivity levels.

The Comanche Gas Commitment
