Capstone receives 5 MW follow-up order for use in Eagle Ford play

Posted on February 4, 2013

Capstone Turbine Corp. received a 5 MW follow-on order for a global upstream oil and gas producer. The five C1000 power packages will be installed in the Eagle Ford Shale play in Texas, U.S.A.

This order increases this particular oil and gas producer’s total Capstone fleet to 10 MW in the Eagle Ford play.

Capstone distributor Horizon Power Systems secured the initial order and this latest follow-on order.

The microturbines will provide power for liquid processing plants and will be located at multiple central gathering plants. The microturbines, fueled by pipeline gas, will produce electricity to provide all power to the onsite equipment, including heaters, pump motors, compressors and distribution panels.

The Eagle Ford Shale is a hydrocarbon producing formation rich in oil and natural gas fields. The shale play area starts at the Texas-Mexico border in Webb and Maverick counties and extends 644 km toward East Texas. The play is 80.4 km wide and an average of 76.2 m thick at a depth between 1219.2 to 3657.6 m.
