Capstone Order Pumps Up Natural Gas Operations

Posted on March 18, 2011

Microturbine manufacturer Capstone Turbine Corp. has sold six C65s to a natural gas producer, which is already running a fleet of 49 Capstone mictroturbines.

Pumps & Service, the Capstone Turbine distributor responsible for selling the fleet of natural gas microturbines, said the six additional C65 microturbines will expand the producer's minigrid system in New Mexico, U.S.A.’s, San Juan Basin. The six new C65 microturbines, which will be installed in June, will be part of a microturbine generation station that provides power to pumping and water transfer units at remote sites via a complex underground electrical system.

The microturbines allow the producer to pump water from tanks at each wellsite to a central water disposal facility, where the water is then returned to the ground, thus eliminating the need for water hauling, said Captstone.
