Chinese Oilfield Equipment Manufacturers Choose Allison Transmission for Reliability


Allison, the global leader in commercial transmission manufacturing, is winning Chinese OEMs’ preference with a reputation for providing reliability and durability.


BEIJING, China — With more than 40 years of experience serving the Chinese petroleum industry, Allison has earned an excellent reputation for product quality and reliability in oilfield well applications, including drilling, cementing, fracturing and retrofitting. Various Allison-equipped oilfield equipment vehicles were showcased at the 13th China International Petroleum & Petrochemical Technology and Equipment Exhibition (CIPPE).

Allison dealer Jingchu Petroleum Technology & Development Co. Ltd. displayed driveline solutions configured for Allison transmissions and various off-highway engines. Other Allison-equipped applications debuting at this oilfield trade show included: Shandong Kerui Holding Group Co., Ltd KTYL2000-105 pressure fracturing pump and KTGJ600-34 well-fixture cementing vehicle; Yantai Jereh automatic well-fixture vehicle and 750hp truck-mounted drilling rig; and GCJ600S-3400B2 well-fixture equipment by Shengli Oil Field Highland Petroleum Equipment Co. Ltd.

Even minor errors in oilfield exploration are dangerous and costly, which is why oilfield operation equipment is subjected to the strictest standards for reliability and durability. “Allison automatic transmissions make work easier, even in the most demanding conditions. Each fully-automatic transmission and its advanced electronic control system are designed to improve operational safety, reliability and durability within this industry,” said Steven Chew, Managing Director for Allison Transmission China. These advantages support Allison’s broad vocational applications, continuing increased market share in Chinese oilfield equipment.

Fracturing truck products of model 2500 and below, manufactured by the Siji Petroleum Machinery Co., Sinopec, are mostly fitted with Allison automatic transmissions.  Wu Hanchuan, Chief Engineer from the Research Institute for Cementing and Fracturing Equipment of Siji, said, “Hydraulic linking is achieved with the torque converter lock-up clutch, satisfying the high-power needs of fracturing vehicles in operation. Furthermore, Allison’s prognostics features help simplify maintenance and care, resulting in fewer breakdowns and ensuring more uptime, improved productivity and lower maintenance costs.”

Since entering the oilfield equipment industry in 2004, Yantai Jereh Petroleum Equipment & Technology Co. Ltd. has made Allison the preferred choice for its locally-developed series of drilling, retrofitting, cementing, liquid nitrogen and fracturing equipment. Allison-fitted oilfield equipment manufactured by Jereh is in operation world-wide, from the polar regions of Canada to the deserts of the Middle East.

According to Wang Feng, Jereh’s Deputy Chief Engineer, “Oilfield operation sites are very challenging when operational space is tight, but high transmission power is in demand. Oilfield equipment is capital intensive and any breakdown means enormous losses. The easy maneuverability and efficient and reliable power transfer of Allison transmissions are the best in meeting that demand. Equipment stability is therefore improved. Allison Transmission is undoubtedly the choice for oilfield equipment.”

Allison not only supports OEMs in upgrading product quality, but also reassures oilfield operators with a strong and seamless service network. Jet Woo, General Manager of Jingchu Petroleum Technology and Development Co. Ltd., agreed. “We dispatch our Allison factory-trained service engineers to oilfields in different areas to provide aftersales service to customers using Allison transmissions.” Through close cooperation with Allison, service technicians from Jingchu are trained to provide onsite technological solutions, using the most advanced operational techniques.

OEMs, technicians and operators alike trust Allison’s reliable and durable transmissions, which continue to provide steady, uninterrupted power to energy industries, contributing to the growth of an industrial China.
