Petro Industry

On stand-by – for your safety!

Whether onshore or offshore – Sauer compressors are used in a wide variety of applications in the Petro Industry sector. Designed for 24/7 operation, their robust construction allows them to be used (virtually) anywhere and under extremely difficult environmental conditions, with exposure to saltwater, heat or cold, for example. Sauer compressors easily satisfy the criteria of ABS, DNV, NORSOK and GL, whilst complying with a range of other certification authorities too.

Besides our standard products, we also provide complex solutions designed to meet our customers’ specific requirements. These include mobile, containerised units, gastight or explosion-proof designs complying with the ATEX Directives, packages featuring diesel or gas engines and even combinations of all of the above.

Sauer compressors always do their job reliably and safely – whether they are in use on a floating platform in the Gulf of Mexico, in the engine room of a ship off the coast of Vietnam, or on a heavy goods vehicle in Siberia.
