Houston, TX: Aggreko, the leader in temporary power, temperature control and oil-free compressed air solutions, today announced that Director of Oil & Gas for Aggreko North America David Dickert will speak on “Leveraging Stranded Gas to Energize Temporary Power Solutions and Support Artificial Lift” at the 2014 SPE Artificial Lift Conference and Exhibition. The event will take place October 6-8, 2014 at the Omni Hotel in Houston, TX. Dickert is scheduled to speak at 4:30 p.m. CT on Tuesday, October 7.
“Compared to diesel fuel, stranded gas is a highly cost-effective, environmentally friendly and reliable supply to power everything from drilling to artificial lift operations,” said Dickert. “I’m looking forward to discussing some common challenges that operators face when leveraging this freely available resource and new technology and applications that enable the capture of this gas to power multiple activities.”
The SPE Artificial Lift Conference and Exhibition will bring together the North American artificial lift community and focus on documenting excellent learning, case studies, and best practices in artificial lift topics. For more information, visit http://www.spe.org/events/alce/2014/index.php.

Aggreko provides power and temperature control solutions to customers who need them either very quickly, or for a short or indeterminate length of time. Examples would be the supply of power to an industrial site which needs to service its permanent power supply, supplying a whole city in times of power shortage, or providing a major sporting event with power and cooling systems. We serve our customers either through our 202 service centres, which we call the Local business, or globally through our Power Projects business.
In the Local business, which accounts for about half of our revenues, we hire our equipment to customers, who then operate it for themselves, although we retain responsibility for servicing and maintaining it. In the Power Projects business, which also accounts for about half of our revenues, we operate as a power producer. We install and operate power plants and we charge our customers both for providing the generating capacity, and for the electricity we produce. We design and manufacture equipment specifically for these requirements in our factory in Dumbarton, Scotland.
Recent customers include the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Ryder Cup and Cirque du Soleil and the power utilities in over 50 countries including the UK, France, Ivory Coast, Mozambique, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Argentina, Venezuela, Chile, Brazil and the USA.
In 2013 we fulfilled almost 48,000 customers’ assignments and 72% of those who responded to our research gave us a recommendation of 9 or 10 out of 10.
