Electric Motor Services from Houma Armature Works 

In the dynamic realm of oil and gas exploration, intricate structures delve into the earth to extract valuable resources. Scattered across remote locations, these operations demand a robust and reliable power source. Houma Armature Works specializes in providing indispensable industrial engines and generators tailored to the unique needs of the oil and gas industry.

Powering Oil and Gas Operations

Industrial engines stand as the backbone of Exploration and Production (E&P), powering every facet of the production process. These engines must be efficient, durable, compact, and cost-effective. It is imperative to maintain your engines and generators to prevent a breakdown, loss of time, and decreased productivity. 

Diesel generators, known for their durability and versatility, are often the preferred choice for drilling operations. In situations where natural gas is available, environmentally conscious natural gas generators can be utilized, though they require meticulous maintenance.
