About Us


RTS is an All-Inclusive Recip Resource - No Matter the Brand

Recently our field crews and support team were engaged in an interesting mix of major engine and compressor overhauls, gear train replacements and bearing/compressor rod replacements. What was so fascinating was that these were all very different types of rotating reciprocating equipment from different OEMs and clients.

Reciprocating Technology Services (RTS) serves upstream, midstream and downstream operators, and is part of the TTS Energy Services group of companies which also includes Turbine Technology Services (TTS).

Located in Northwest Houston, Texas, RTS can handle an extraordinary range of projects from swing engines and overhauls to parts distribution.
