Amid tightening budgets and a strong focus toward reducing emissions, electric fracturing fleets—or e-fracs—are an emerging option to address both the environmental and cost challenges while helping oil and gas producers also achieve their ESG goals.

“Everywhere you look today, it’s all about ESG and how you are going to reduce your carbon footprint,” said Matt Moncla, chief commercial officer at Houston-based U.S. Well Services (USWS).

An independent third party testing revealed that USWS’ clean fleet technology decreases emissions by 99% compared to conventional diesel powered fleets by eliminating environmental exposure to pollutants such as NOx and carbon monoxide, Moncla said during an exclusive interview with Hart Energy’s Faiza Rizvi.
