Oil & Gas

In the oil and gas industry, when motors aren’t turning, profits aren’t flowing. That’s particularly true in today’s exploration and production environments. “Easy” sources of hydrocarbons have all but dried up. The investments required to exploit unconventional sources – tight oil, tar sands, deepwater locations, subsalt formations and more – have never been greater.

Why Take Risks? Specify Kollmorgen.

Equipment that fails prematurely at the end of a drill string or on an ROV can be very expensive to replace in direct costs and downtime. Why risk it? Protect your investments and profitability with Kollmorgen HP/HT motors. They deliver all the power density, speed and torque you need in a compact space. And they continue to perform reliably for the long haul, even while enduring ambient temperatures up to 240°C (464°F) and pressures up to 2,068 bar (30,000 psi).

A History of Firsts

We’ve been working with the biggest names in oil and gas services for more than 30 years, beginning with the first brushless motor designed specifically for downhole drilling. In 1986, Kollmorgen motors powered the legendary ROV Jason Jr. at a depth of 3,784 meters (12,415 feet) to explore the interior of Titanic for the first time since it sank in 1912. And since those historical successes, we’ve continued to collaborate with leading innovators in exploration technology to make new firsts possible in:

  • Measurement and logging while drilling (MWD/LWD)
  • Formation testing
  • Completion tools
  • Plug setting
  • ROV thrusters
  • Robotic manipulation
  • Subsea torque tools

Pushing the Limits of Performance

Our state-of-the-art HP/HT motors incorporate a proprietary high-performance insulation system that withstands extremely high temperatures with no loss of power. Our pressure compensation and flow-through oil designs handle extreme pressures miles down on the seabed, and miles more below the mudline. Our custom design capabilities ensure the right fit for your unique application. And our quick prototyping, global manufacturing and high-volume delivery capabilities help you keep all your drilling sites productive.

Kollmorgen pushes the limits of performance – so you can push the quest for energy to new extremes.
