PW Power Systems, a provider of energy solutions for the power generation industry, has its first customer in the oil and gas production industry. PWPS announces the signing of an agreement to supply 30-megawatt FT MOBILEPAC aero-derivative gas turbine generators to U.S. Well Services, LLC with delivery beginning fall 2018.
The FT MOBILEPAC gas turbine generators will power Houston based U.S. Well Services’ patented electric frac fleet technology. Frac Fleet is the first fully electric, fully mobile well stimulation system powered by natural gas, resulting in fracturing operations that are cleaner, quieter, safer, and less disruptive to neighboring communities than conventional, diesel-powered systems.
U.S. Well Services, based in Houston, Texas, provides high-pressure, hydraulic fracturing services in active shale and unconventional oil and natural gas basins. The FT MOBILEPAC gas turbine generators will power USWS’ patented electric frac fleets. USWS offers the first fully electric, fully mobile well stimulation system powered by natural gas, resulting in fracturing operations that are quieter, safer, and less disruptive to neighboring communities.
PW Power Systems President and CEO Raul Pereda emphasized, “The FT MOBILEPAC is the ideal technology for this application. It will dramatically reduce the time and resources required for mobilization and demobilization while enabling full electrification of unconventional oil and gas production. We are proud to partner with U.S. Well Services to make this advancement possible. Inexpensive and abundant North American natural gas has created a Change in Power.”
“The FT MOBILEPAC unit is the optimal mobile power generation technology for this application, offering significant reductions in emissions and improvements in operational efficiency compared to conventional diesel engines for hydraulic fracturing applications. The PWPS mobile power plant requires minimal site preparation, and there is no need for an enclosure or building. The MOBILEPAC package offers significantly higher power density in a compact footprint, and the lighter, aero-derivative design allows for enhanced mobility, resulting in both time and money savings,” said Harsh Shah, PWPS Vice President of Sales and Business Development.
