Green Field Powers Eagle Ford Fracking Solely with LNG

Lafayette, La.-based Green Field Energy Services has successfully completed over 60 hydraulic fracturing stages on a well series in South Texas' Eagle Ford shale play using only liquefied natural gas (LNG), Green Field reported April 17.

The company had up to four turbine fracturing pump (FTP) units operating during each fracturing stage; each TFP consistently pumped five barrels per minute at a pressure of 7,500 pounds per square inch.

"We continue to push the envelope in the use of gas as a fuel source in pressure pumping," said Green Field Energy Services President Rick Fontova in a statement. "This application is yet another step closer to our soon-to-be-realized vision of using field gas to power our Turbine Frac Pumps."

Green Field has been using custom turbine technology to offer hydraulic fracturing pumps that can run solely and cost effectively on natural gas, including LNG and compressed natural gas.
