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.
