    CALGARY, July 16 /CNW/ - Global Energy Services Ltd. ("the Company") (GLK
- TSX Venture), is pleased to announce the commencement of a pilot project
with a major Barnett Shale producer for the deployment of Global's patented
hydraulic submersible pump.
    The pilot project is fully funded by the Barnett Shale producer, which
operates a substantial number of wells in the field. The pilot project will
utilize an enhanced version of Global's patented hydraulic submersible pump to
dewater the horizontal section of the gas wells. To date, the Barnett Shale
operator has not been able to identify a suitable technology to effectively
dewater the maturing low-pressure Barnett Shale wells. Finding an effective
solution is critical for Barnett Shale producers as this can increase daily
gas volumes and potentially add recoverable reserves.
    Some experts have suggested the Barnett Shale may be the largest onshore
natural gas field in the United States. The field is proven to have
2.5 trillion cubic feet (59 km(3)) of natural gas, and is widely estimated to
contain as much as 30 trillion cubic feet (8.5x10(11) m(3)) of natural gas
resources. Over 5,500 wells are in operation and many more are being drilled.
    "We are excited to work with our client on this Barnett Shale project as
it poses a significant opportunity for both Global Energy Services and our
client," said Farhan Farshori, Vice President, Corporate Development.
"Additionally, our patented hydraulic submersible pump is well suited for
other shale applications in the United States: New Albany Shale, Fayetteville
Shale, and Devonian-Ohio Shale."
