The natural gas industry has long depended on large bore, two-stroke cycle, spark-ignited, gas-powered, reciprocating engines to move gas from the well to the pipeline and downstream. As regulations governing the pollutant emissions from these engines are tightened the industry is turning to the engine OEMs for a solution.

The challenge of further reducing engine emissions is not a new task to the industry. However, as the requirements placed on the engines are further restricted, the technology required to achieve these goals becomes more advanced, along with the required tools and technology to create it. New predictive tools have been created and have become more powerful and capable as computer software and hardware becomes more advanced, enabling engineers to create more complex designs and to do so quickly and at lower cost, all of which may not have been possible previously. This paper investigates methods used in designing the Ajax 2800 series, which is a large bore, two-stroke cycle, gas-powered, reciprocating engine and the improvements in emissions that resulted from the application of these methods.. Solutions to overcoming the challenges encountered during the process will also be presented.
