Capstone secures offshore oil & gas order in India

04 November 2019

Capstone Turbine Corporation the clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced that it has secured its first-ever offshore oil and gas order in India. Brio Energy Private Limited, Capstone's exclusive distributor for India, secured the order for two C65 microturbines on a wellhead platform in the Arabian Sea.

The Capstone microturbines will run on raw associated gas released from the wellhead, providing a highly reliable power source to the entire platform. As a result, the installation will be fully automated and primarily operated remotely. Communication to the microturbines will be done over radio frequency and controlled using the Capstone supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system. The large oil and gas producer was looking for a reliable power source that is independent and easy to operate and selected Capstone microturbines for their reliability and low maintenance.

"As India's demand for primary energy increases over the next several years, we look to capitalize to the fullest of our ability on this enormous opportunity by growing our product offerings into this rapidly evolving market," said Darren Jamison, Capstone's President, and Chief Executive Officer. "Capstone microturbines' extremely low emissions, low maintenance, and demonstrated oil field reliability make them a perfect operational fit for stand-alone offshore applications," concluded Mr. Jamison.
