Oilfield workers have begun noticing problems with the technology used to crank the world’s largest oilfield engines, the Tecumsoehr 1,000,000 gallon trucks.
Engineers are trying to fix the problem.
The problem appears to be caused by a faulty cylinder head assembly, said James Hogg, president of the National Association of Engine Operators, which represents the nation’s oilfield and engine companies.
“This is not a technical issue, this is a business issue,” Hogg said.
“The question is, ‘How do we fix this?'”
Hogg believes the problem may have been triggered by the use of a defective oil seal and that some of the problems may be permanent.
The problem dates back to 2003, when oil companies began replacing the seal on the head of the engine.
That seal is supposed to hold oil in place for long periods of time before it ruptures.
The seal is also designed to be able to withstand the rigors of a truck driving around, including rolling, flipping and shaking.
The problems are not unique to Tecum so far, but Hogg’s group said they have noticed a lot of the trucks now being built have problems, including broken cylinders.
Hogg said a lot more work needs to be done to find out why the problem is happening.
He said the problem could be solved if the seal is replaced and oil pressure is increased.
Oil field workers are beginning noticing problems on the trucks that run the Tecums, as well as on the engines being used to power the trucks.
The Tecumis are designed to work on the Bakken and Eagle Ford shale formations.
The oil and gas industry has been struggling to find new drilling techniques to get the oil out of the formations.
Oil companies have been using different seals, such as the Tecom-1 seal, to crank their engines to boost oil production.
The Tecum1 seals are supposed to last a long time, while the Tec-1 is supposed only to last about 30 days.
But oil companies have complained the seals don’t last very long.
Hagg said he’s seen some oil seal problems on Tecum trucks that have been used to drive rigs around.
It’s a common problem in the industry.
Hogsons company is trying to make the seals more durable.
He has received a request from the U.S. government for information about how to fix a seal problem on the engine cylinders, and he’s also working with the U,S.
Bureau of Land Management to find a way to keep oil and lubricant out of those cylinders.
