Capstone Nets Order For Oil Field Power
By DJ Slater14 December 2020
Capstone Turbine Corp. received a follow-on order from one of the world’s largest oil and gas companies for a C1000 Signature Series microturbine for a remote oil field in West Texas. The long-term rental order, secured by Lone Star Power Solutions, will be delivered and commissioned in January 2021.
Fueled by pipeline gas, the C1000S rental system will produce electricity to power on-site equipment. Capstone microturbines align with the needs of oil and gas producers as they can be used in all phases of production operations, including upstream, midstream and downstream in onshore and offshore applications, the company said.
This order supports the future expansion of Capstone’s long-term rental fleet from 8.6 MW to its target of 10 MWs by March 31, 2021. The company hopes to hit a rental fleet size of 21.1 MWs by March 31, 2022.
