Presentation to focus on cutting fuel costs and reducing emissions with natural gas
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 at the 2014 DUG Eagle Ford Conference. The show will take place September 15-17, 2014 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, TX. Dickert is scheduled to speak at 3:45 p.m. CT on Tuesday, September 16.
“As one of the more active plays in the U.S., the Eagle Ford shale is full of opportunities to leverage its stranded gas reserves to power drilling and production operations,” said Dickert. “Operators using their own onsite sources of natural gas to power their operations are seeing significant fuel savings and reduced emissions levels. On behalf of Aggreko, I look forward to sharing some best practices by which to achieve these types of remarkable results with the DUG Eagle Ford Conference attendees.”
The DUG Eagle Ford Conference will discuss topics related to upstream and midstream developments in the Eagle Ford shale and will feature prominent speakers from leading energy companies and key industry stakeholders. For more information, visit www.dugeagleford.com.

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.
