Capstone microturbines align perfectly with the needs of the oil and gas industry and are currently used in all phases of oil production including upstream, midstream, and downstream operations in both onshore and offshore applications. Capstone microturbines provide the low operational cost, high availability, and high reliability oil producers need.
Many thanks to all who helped on getting the Ramon Station up and running. I spoke to the customer and things are working very well. The Capstone MicroTurbines are providing the power for a booster station on an oil pipeline. The customer is currently running 11 Capstone microturbines with the rest in reserve. They are able to look at the location system from the other locations so they are very happy with the APS (Advanced Power Server). They have been filling the 30,000-gallon Propane tank every 5 days. Because of running the microturbines, they hope to get it to the planned 10–14 day filling schedule saving them a bundle in propane and delivery charges.
