Oil and gas sites can be located anywhere, and the fact is that most are many miles away from the nearest power source. This makes oil and gas companies dependent on mobile power generators to produce the power needed to keep lights, oil derricks, and other equipment operational. At Central Power Systems & Services, our oil and gas services personnel are always ready to inspect, maintain, and repair your generator equipment.
Mobile Generator Maintenance for Oil and Gas Exploration
Towable generators can take a pummeling when transported from site to site. This means that they will require more attention to maintenance than permanently positioned standby generator systems. Operators should be aware of this, and we recommend scheduling a maintenance appointment immediately after a generator is repositioned and before it begins aiding your oil and gas exploration activities.
Our mobile power generation maintenance services include the following and much more:
- Inspect fuel lines
- We will confirm that the fuel lines are tightly secured and not clogged, cracked, or torn.
- Check/change the oil
- We will confirm the oil reservoir is filled and not leaking. At appropriate intervals and as needed, we will change the oil.
- Check ventilation and change the air filters
- Our mobile generator service technicians will ensure the system has sufficient ventilation and that air filters aren’t dirty and clogged.
- Load bank testing
- We will test the load and confirm the generator can produce the power you need!
Adherence To Maintenance Is Essential for Safety
Staying on top of generator maintenance is essential for reliability. And, especially for oil and gas services, it’s vital for safety. With oil and gas sites often located far away from civilization, this means emergency services are far away, and an accident during oil and gas exploration can quickly turn fatal.
To that end, our mobile power generation technicians will thoroughly inspect your generator and site to address any impediments to generator safety.
We will address the following hazards as they relate to mobile power generation on an oil and gas exploration site:
- Toxic exposure
- Vehicular accidents
Our certified generator maintenance technicians will ensure that you are compliant with OSHA, NFPA, API, EPA, and other applicable regulatory standards that govern the use of mobile power generation equipment on oil and gas sites, including but not limited to:
- NFPA 30 – Flammable and Combustible Liquids Code
- NFPA70 – National Electrical Code
- NFPA 110 – Standard for Emergency & Standby Generators
- 1910 Subpart R – Electric power generation, transmission, and distribution
