Evolution Well Services Advances Fracturing Operations with an Electrically Powered System

CALGARY, June 4, 2012 /CNW/ - EVOLUTION WELL SERVICES offers a new system and method of providing on-site electrical power along with a totally electrically powered frac spread. A patent pending technology allows for the use of electrical power to deliver fracturing fluids to the wellbore during fracturing operations. This process technology eliminates the use of conventional diesel engines, transmissions along with their associated emissions, eco-footprint, maintenance issues and manpower.

Eldon Schelske, President, says, " A natural gas turbine generator provides the source of electrical power. This process allows us to power the entire system electrically, including our blenders and auxiliary equipment, giving us unprecedented levels of control during the fracturing process as well as enhanced safety features."

Todd Coli, Senior Vice President adds, "Natural gas is considered to be the cleanest, most efficient fuel source available. By designing and constructing "fit for purpose equipment", using a system that is powered by natural gas, it is expected that the fracturing footprint, manpower, and maintenance requirements can be reduced by over 60% when compared with traditional diesel-powered operations."

The advantages of electrically driven equipment become readily apparent when compared to conventional diesel powered fracturing assets. Safety concerns such as the need to "Hot Fuel" equipment are eliminated, manpower requirements are reduced dramatically, the overall footprint of the equipment package is reduced dramatically and the efficiency of the operation is increased exponentially. These advantages and others, along with an eco-friendly fuel source, give Evolution Well Services the ability to provide our customers an economical solution to the issues associated with large scale Fracturing operations worldwide.
