Investigation of sustitution limits and emissions of an in-line six cylinder diesel derived dual fuel engine
New drilling techniques have expanded the availability and decreased the cost of oil and natural gas. This has resulted in an increase in drilling activity. Historically, power for drilling and hydraulic fracturing operations is supplied by diesel engines. The power demand requires large quantities of diesel fuel to be trucked to the well site. In an effort to reduce operating costs and disturbances to neighboring communities, natural gas is being utilized in these processes. One approach for achieving this is using natural gas from the local pipeline and routing it to the engine intake to convert ...
