Caterpillar Recognizes Market Demand to Utilize Both Natural Gas and Diesel Fuels

Driving forces for using both natural gas and diesel fuels include the decoupling of natural gas and diesel fuel prices and regulatory pressure to reduce flaring and maintain regulated emissions compliance.

Dynamic Gas Blending™ technology allows for select Oil and Gas engines to be upgraded to a system that will provide sustainable development, lower cost of ownership, and improved diagnostic capability. The Dynamic Gas Blending™ solution continuously adjusts to changes in incoming fuel quality and pressure, allowing engines to run on a wide variety of fuels, from associated gas to gasified LNG, all while consistently maintaining diesel power and transient performance.
