Aggreko’s David Dickert to Speak on Powering Multi-Well Pads with Temporary Power Generators at the 2014 Multi-Well Pad Drilling Congress

September 23, 2014

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 “Examining Generator Hire to Effectively and Efficiently Power Multi-well Pads” at the 2014 Multi-Well Pad Drilling Congress. The event will take place September 30 – October 1, 2014 at the Crowne Plaza Northeast-Brookhollow in Houston, TX. Dickert is scheduled to speak at 6:00 p.m. CT on Tuesday, September 30.

“The multi-well pad is a great concept for maximizing production and reducing costs. However, it also demands more power, which is oftentimes tough to obtain in the remote locations of unconventional oil and gas development,” said Dickert. “I’m looking forward to discussing how operators can benefit from stranded gas reserves to power their multi-well pads and further drive costs down as a result.”

The Multi-Well Pad Drilling Congress is the first dedicated forum on optimizing pad drilling in unconventional plays and will discuss topics such as: determining optimal well spacing, wells per pad, pad size, rig selection, anti-collision and simultaneous operations strategies for cost-effective multi-well pad drilling.

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.
