The oil and gas exploration and production company's operations are located primarily in the United States with natural-gas exploration and production onshore in the lower 48 states, onshore in Alaska, and offshore in the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico. This latest order brings their total C65 fleet to approximately 150 microturbines.

In addition, the company's mid-stream division has previously purchased seven C600s and one C800 making the company one of the largest Capstone users in North America.
Capstone distributor Horizon Power Systems secured this follow-on order to support the exploration and production company's growing power needs in the Eagle Ford shale play.
"These multiple follow-on orders indicate that Capstone microturbines are quickly becoming the chosen power system to meet the growing needs of major oil & gas exploration and production companies operating in North America," said Sam Henry, Horizon Power Systems President.
