24 More For Capstone Turbine Corp.
Capstone Turbine Corp., a manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, received an order for 24 additional C65 microturbines for a large independent oil and natural gas company.
The order is an addition to an 18-unit C65 order received in August 2010. All 18 of the C65s purchased in August 2010 have been successfully commissioned by Capstone distributor Pumps & Service, the company said.
Pumps & Service has received 12.5 MW of new orders over the past nine months from three major oil and gas companies exploring large shale reserves – or plays – in the United States.
The latest order for 24 low-emission C65 microturbines will provide prime power to central processing facilities and metering stations at remote well sites in the Eagle Ford shale play in South Texas. The Eagle Ford play is expected to emerge as a major oil and gas play in the United States over the next decade, Capstone said. Experts estimate it will rank sixth in size among oil fields in the U.S.
