A Capstone Green Energy Corp. subsidiary will supply a Marcellus Shale E&P microturbines that generate electricity from piped gas, according to a June 15 press release. Capstone did not name the E&P.

Capstone’s distributor, E-Finity Distributed Generation, will supply 10 additional C65 microturbines to be deployed in the Marcellus after the E&P submitted a follow-on order, Capstone said. The order will be commissioned this summer.

The microturbines are fueled by wellhead natural gas that has been extracted directly from the pipeline. The turbines, upon installation, will provide electrical power at a variety of wellhead sites where it is now unavailable.

In addition, because the C65 microturbines will be the primary source of power for these wellhead sites, related emissions will be “ultra-low,” Capstone said in the news release.

Jeff Beiter, president and CEO Capstone’s E-Finity, said the company’s returning Marcellus and Utica shale customers demonstrates the company’s proficiency and reliability in “delivering power where it is need.”

“These microturbine units will significantly enhance production and facilitate the efficient extraction of clean-burning, abundant natural gas from one of the world's largest natural gas fields,” Beiter said.

Capstone Green Energy, based in California, provides customized microgrid solutions and on-site energy technology systems.
