A large amount of energy is required for oil and gas drilling and recovery operations, some of which are powered by fluid power solutions and hydraulic systems. The solutions are used for drilling, lifting, and transferring operations and are safer than electrical-powered solutions as they eliminate the risk of fires and explosions.

Offshore fluid power solutions and hydraulic systems
Hydraulic systems and fluid power solutions offer high power density for oil and gas recovery, compared to electrical systems.
The sector utilises different types of hydraulic systems for its operations such as hydraulic meters, hydraulic cylinders, hydraulic motors, hydraulic power units, hydraulic clamping systems and hydraulic fluid power solutions.
The advantages of using hydraulic fluid power solutions are:
- High power-to-weight ratio: Hydraulic fluid power solutions offer high power at low weights, making them an idle solution for job sites with limited space.
- Safety: Fluid power solutions do not produce sparks like electrical systems making them safe in hazardous environments.
- Controlling multiple equipment: Hydraulic systems such as hydraulic pumps can power multiple cylinders, actuators, and motors.
Marine electric drive systems
Marine electric drive systems are used in the offshore sector to power compressors and pumps. The systems offer better process control and ensure that equipment is operating at optimum levels. They also reduce carbon emissions compared to gas turbine drive compressor systems.
