Oil & Gas

With a focus on safety, our oil and gas engineering equipment is fully repaired and tested in our IECEx certified facility ensuring optimum performance and reliability. Our qualified site service engineers monitor and maintain motors, generators and pumps in challenging offshore environments globally.



With many years experience in the repair, maintenance and life extension of electrical rotating machines, Houghton International works with customers in the oil and gas engineering industry to improve performance, maximise output and maintain the long-term reliability of key assets.

Our offshore engineering certified, multi-skilled workforce carry out mechanical and electrical work to a range of rotating equipment including motors, generators and pumps to increase reliability and extend the useful life of the machine.

Overseen and managed by our strong project management team, overhaul and repair work can be carried out in situ offshore or in our fully equipped IECEx approved workshop. Combined with our in-house coil manufacture facilities and dynamic motor and pump testing capabilities we are ideally located to service the full spectrum of rotating machines operated in the oil and gas industry. Load testing is also offered on critical assets to ensure equipment has been thoroughly tested prior to being reinstalled and provide added assurance.

Our skilled engineers provide:

  • Fault diagnosis
  • Emergency repairs
  • In situ repair and overhaul
  • Preventative maintenance and condition monitoring
  • Motor storage and spares management
  • Supply of specialist motors

Our range of site services includes removal and recommissioning, testing and fault finding as well as a range of condition monitoring services to identify any issues in advance and support maintenance plans reducing failures and cost associated with downtime and emergency repairs.

We operate a dedicated technical support/call out service offering access to skilled engineers 24/7 and an emergency repair service to minimise downtime and engineers can be on site within hours to diagnose a fault and plan repairs to ensure critical assets are back up and running in the quickest possible timescale.

Additionally, we can also offer cost effective storage, monitoring and asset management solutions combining our many years of experience with the latest technology to improve maintenance schedules and identify and resolve common faults.

We are also members of First Point Assessment (FPAL), the leading oil and gas industry supply chain database giving our customer added confidence that we have the skills, experience and capabilities in place to meet their requirements.

We understand remote operating conditions present a unique set of challenges and we pride ourselves on providing excellent customer service.
