distributed generation power units at marginal well sites in California. Electricity produc- tion is one of the largest costs associated with oil production. In California, equipment such as pump jacks are all run by electricity and this power must be purchased from the utility grid. Partners including independent oil producers, the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission, and the California Oil Producers Electric Coopera- tive (COPE) successfully dem- onstrated the use of microtur- bine technology for electricity generation on site. By harnessing the energy in the waste gasses, the pilot projects brought shut-in fields to full production, eliminated the need to flare the gas, and reduced costs associated with oil production.

reduced capital replacement costs, lower environmental per- mitting costs and carbon credit revenue. While in the US the gas market is well-developed, internationally, especially in developing countries, this is often not the case. Lack of gas markets represents a problem that often leads to wasting the valuable energy source of the associated gas and vented methane. This represents a unique opportunity for com- bined heat and power (CHP) developers. While the oil com- panies may use some of the gas to fuel their own operations, often the oil companies do not have expertise or interest in the power or CHP sector. But often oil companies are willing to work with developers that have an interest in this area. Natural gas is often produced in association with oil produc- tion. In the United States, the associated gas is sometimes flared where permitted, but creates air emission challenges in many places and is therefore vented. The inability to flare the amounts of gas produced has caused oil production to be shut-in for lack of compliance with regulations. This means that the valves are closed so there is no oil or gas produc- tion from the well. By adding a turbine, emissions are lowered and the valve can be reopened and production is restarted. A research pilot demonstra- tion project funded by the US Department of Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory, is turning meth- ane gas into a valuable en- ergy source through the use of POTTSTOWN, PA — As part of their annual awards programs, Zweig Group ’s Best Firms To Work For and Hot Firms competitions, Traf- fic Planning and Design, Inc.
