Capstone Secures Another Follow-On Order for an Unmanned Gas Compression Station

VAN NUYS, Calif., May 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capstone Turbine Corporation ( (Nasdaq:CPST), the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced today another follow-on order for a C1000 Signature Series microturbine to power a gas compression station in the Midwest. Horizon Power System, Capstone’s longtime distributor, secured the order.

“Capstone has a long history of successful operation in all phases of the oil and gas industry around the world,” said Darren Jamison, President and Chief Executive Officer of Capstone. “As the oil and gas market continues to recover, we expect to see more follow-on orders from companies looking to reduce their operating expenses while simultaneously reaching their environmental and emission goals,” added Mr. Jamison.

Recently oil prices have risen to levels not seen since the tailspin in 2014. This steady recovery to levels above $70 a barrel has been fueled by a number of factors including the possible reinstatement of sanctions on Iran, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries’ (OPEC) efforts to curb global production–which has had the biggest influence on crude values, as well as Venezuela’s oil output issues and the overall growing demand for oil.

Designed for continuous use, the natural gas-fueled C1000S microturbine will operate 24/7 and deliver prime power to critical equipment at the site. The compression station is remote, without access to electric utilities, making it the perfect candidate for onsite power generation with Capstone technology. With industry-leading low maintenance requirements, the microturbines eliminate the requirement for onsite personnel to service the equipment. This reduces the operational expenses of the facility by requiring less frequent visits to the compression station for service.

“This order comes in the form of repeat business by a customer who owns multiple gas compression stations,” said Jim Crouse, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing of Capstone. “They were so pleased with the performance of the microturbines at their other station and the support from Horizon Power Systems, that the choice was clear when they needed another onsite power generation solution, further reinforcing our position in the industry.”

With thousands of microturbines deployed in oil and gas operations around the world, Capstone microturbines continue to be the preferred choice of many oil and gas operators because of their reliability, efficiency and low emissions.
