Capstone secures order for 16 units from oil and gas customer

Published on: 

Capstone Turbine Corporation has received a sixteen unit follow-on order for a C800, two C600s, and multiple C65 and C30 microturbines totaling in excess of 2.6MW for a repeat oil and gas customer in the Mancos and Gallup shale plays, situated in the San Juan Basin.

Horizon Power Systems, Capstone’s distributor for the Eagle Ford, Permian, Barnett, Mancos, San Juan and Wattenberg shale plays, placed the order, which is expected to be commissioned in three phases beginning in December 2016.

The dual mode microturbines will be installed at various locations within the San Juan basin to help boost production using a growing microgrid system. Clean power generated by the microturbines will drive artificial lifts and assist with the transfer of oil and water to various points of the production field.


The long term repeat oil and gas customer installed its first Capstone microturbine back in 2000 to establish a central power system for shale gas production in the San Juan Basin. After years of expanding its operations with additional microturbines, the customer decided to introduce Capstone’s larger microturbine systems to the field.
