The Importance of Commercial Generators for Industrial Oil & Gas Operations

Generators play a critical role in industrial oil & gas applications, such as drilling and digging. These commercial and industrial generators not only serve as a backup power source in the event of a power service interruption to the main power supply, but can also serve as the prime source of power for operations that take place off the power grid.

Having a reliable generator on-site will ensure that all your drilling and digging operations won’t grind to a halt even in the event of a total power outage.

Oil and gas operations can be categorized into 3 parts: offshore, inland, and service.

Exactly as the name describes, offshore are oil drilling operations that go off-shore and install platforms in the middle of the ocean to drill for resources.

Offshore drilling is a mechanical process where a wellbore is drilled below the seabed in order to explore for and extract petroleum that lies in rock formations beneath the seabed.

Onshore (Inland)
Onshore (aka Inland) drilling refers to drilling deep holes under the earth’s surface. These drilling operations are to extract natural resources from the earth. The process is often accomplished by making wells on land and drilling holes to extract resources.

Service drilling is generally categorized for experts and specialists that either design, produce, test, or service & maintain drilling equipment.
