Oil and Gas

Providing round-the-clock operation with uninterrupted power, Capstone microturbines produce prime power and facility power for oil and gas applications, including central gathering facilities, LACT unitsoil stabilization units, artificial liftpumping skids and salt water disposal units.

Highly reliable and rugged Capstone microturbines:

  • average 99% availability
  • ideal for wellhead sites, offshore platforms and compressor stations (all either manned or unmanned)
  • operate on pipeline or unprocessed wellhead gas
  • require little maintenance — have only one moving part and no oil or coolants
  • withstand harsh environments
  • low emissions meet tough air quality and emission regulations without after-market controls

Scalable from 30kW to 5MW
Using jet-engine technology, Capstone’s robust power systems are scalable from 30kW to 5MW. They’ve logged millions of documented runtime hours worldwide. Distributed power generation applications include:

  • onsite power for oil and gas sites
  • cogeneration (CHP)
  • trigeneration (CCHP)

High reliability – 99% availability
Capstone microturbines are extremely reliable. They require less maintenance and have fewer maintenance intervals than traditional reciprocating engines. On average:

  • microturbines operate at 99% availability
  • provide 25 more operating days a year than reciprocating engines, which average 92% availability

One moving part
Capstone microturbines feature only one moving part and patented air bearings that don’t require oil or coolants.

Low emissions
Ultra-low emission microturbines meet stringent air quality and emission guidelines in the oil and gas industry.

• Pipeline quality gas directly from the line
• Low or high pressure natural gas
• Flare gas
• Diesel
• Propane
• Kerosene

All Capstone microturbines operate:
• Continuously or on demand
• Stand alone or grid connected
• Individually or Multi Packed
• On a variety of fuels
