Capstone secures new shale gas customers

Published on: 

Capstone Turbine Corporation recently received multiple orders from E-Finity Distributed Generation for microturbines to be used for oil and gas operations in the Marcellus and Utica Shale regions.



E-Finity Distributed Generation, Capstone's exclusive oil and gas distributor for the Marcellus and Utica Shale plays, secured multiple orders from two new customers. The orders came from two established gas producing companies in the wet gas region.


One customer is turning to Capstone and E-Finity for a skid mounted option to power a well pad. The Pennsylvania-based energy company will power the site with a Capstone C30 MicroTurbine on a skid system designed and built for the customer by E-Finity. It includes a PLC-based controller, a 480V distribution panel, a 208V/120V distribution panel and a single gas connection. 


The skid system will be used to power heat trace, site lighting and other miscellaneous loads, as well as allow them to bring their compression station online very quickly. The skid eliminates the need for separate electrical building and reduces construction and startup costs significantly.


The other customer has chosen multiple Capstone units for similar well pad applications at multiple locations across the Marcellus and Utica region. In addition to well pad heat trace and lights, some sites include gas measurement equipment on or near multiple well locations.
