Green Energy Oilfield Services Makes Its Move on LNG

What's the best way to haul water from an oil field? With a natural gas truck of course! Green Energy Oilfield Services (GEOS), an oilfield service company that specializes in fluid management for oil and gas well drilling, production, and servicing agrees and has purchased 60 Peterbilt 388 liquefied natural gas (LNG) trucks featuring Westport HD systems. The water solutions company based in Fairfield, Texas, has committed to run its entire fleet on LNG.

Roger Nevill, GEOS’ Founder, President and COO said:

“The launch of our new natural gas fleet marks our entry into the oil and gas services business. We believe our investment in natural gas trucks will provide us with a competitive advantage as a result of lower and stable fuel pricing and lower greenhouse gas emissions compared to diesel and we have not relied on any state or federal grants.”

This is great news for Westport, as it marks another step in the right direction for natural gas transportation. Earlier last year (April 2011) Westport completed a purchase order with Heckmann Corporation, another oilfield water solutions company, for a fleet of 200 natural gas vehicles to haul water to and from frac sites. The purchase is the largest single order of  natural gas trucks by a US customer.

The buy-in from the oil and gas industry's service providers like Green Energy Oilfield Services and Heckmann signals a positive shift towards natural gas for large-scale fleet transportation. These innovative organizations are offering 'closed loop' solutions by hauling water waste from the very sites that their fleets are fueled, reducing the carbon footprint of the entire operation and encouraging reliance on domestic fuel.

I am glad to know that oilfield services specialize oil and gas well drilling and production. That is interesting that there has been a shift towards natural gas for large-scale fleet transportation.That is good that they are striving to encourage reliance on domestic fuel.
