CNX Resources Corp. on July 26 announced an agreement with Dynamis Power Solutions to introduce an electric-powered drilling system fueled entirely by on-site natural gas to the Appalachian Basin, according to a press release.

Pittsburgh-based CNX first entered a long-term agreement to develop a 100% electric hydraulic fracturing fleet in the Appalachian Basin with Evolution Well Services in 2018 and extended the agreement for another four years in April to continue producing sustainable energy in the region.

Through the partnership, Dynamis' Gas Hybrid Drilling Package will eliminate diesel fuel consumption on pad by combining high efficiency continuous duty natural gas reciprocating power generation with battery energy storage technology. The system will help to decrease engine CO2 and NOX emissions, as well as optimize the complete power system operation.
