Cummins has announced three new engines for the oil and gas industry.
The Cummins KTA19GC is a 420-hp, 19-litre displacement, rich-burn engine designed for well head, gathering and related gas compression applications. It is available in a standard or catalyst rating and also offers a shielded CSA ignition as an option.
The KTA19GC will be in limited production in the fourth quarter of 2002 after undergoing several thousand hours of performance and reliability testing.
Rotary Gas Systems of Midland, TX, and Twin Stars of Farmington, NM, are working closely with Cummins in field trials of the KTA19GC.
Cummins also unveiled two frac ratings for its QST30 engine. The new 1350-hp and 1500-hp ratings, available in the fourth quarter of 2002, extend the power reach of the QST30 platform.
