Industry Overview

Energy demands are increasing globally, putting pressure on producers to maximize production efficiently. ABB is making a difference by enabling safe, smart and sustainable operations with integrated solutions that digitalize, automate and electrify the oil and gas industry. We are focused on helping energy companies operate more efficiently to reduce their environmental impact, while enabling new, clean energy value chains to fuel our future.

 Safety. Productivity. Efficiency. Reliability. Service. Everything counts on the bottom line.


Operational uptime

There are many applications in the oil and gas industry that use electric motors in processes that are complex and often exposed to the harshest environmental conditions. These conditions put a high demand on the driven equipment. Selecting the right motor will translate into increased production output, improved performance, and reduced maintenance costs.
Energy efficiency

Energy efficiency and sustainability

Baldor-Reliance motors meet regulations for increased energy efficiency, reliability, uptime, longer machinery life and less maintenance. A motor that does not need to be replaced is a more sustainable solutions to the environment. ABB brings deep experience to help oil and gas companies thrive during energy transitions that help to reduce carbon footprint.
