Houston, TX: Aggreko, the leader in temporary power, temperature control and oil-free compressed air solutions, today announced that Business Development Manager of Oil & Gas for Aggreko North America Forrest Marsh, will speak on natural gas power systems at the 18th Annual Wyoming Oil & Gas Fair, taking place September 17-19, 2014 at the Snow King Sports and Events Center in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Marsh is scheduled to speak at 11:20 a.m. ET on Friday, September 19 in the Ice Arena.
Marsh will discuss the challenges currently facing operators when deploying temporary power in the unconventional basins such as how natural gas compares to diesel power generation, utilizing flared or stranded gas, scaling to match the complex multi-well pad, and powering multiple single well pads.
“Powering operations across all the basins in the Rocky Mountains, from the Williston to the Uinta, with temporary natural gas fired power generation is allowing operators to cut fuel costs and reduce flaring,” said Marsh. “These types of cost efficient and environmentally sound solutions will further the growth of the booming activity we’re currently seeing in Wyoming.”

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 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.
