Evolution Well Services demonstrates a cleaner and environmentally viable fracturing solution

February 11, 2013

CALGARY, Feb. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – EVOLUTION WELL SERVICES demonstrated their new hybrid powered fracturing technology on February
5, 2013 in Lethbridge, Alberta.  Various industry professionals
witnessed the first demonstration of a mobile natural gas solution that
results in lower emissions, operating costs in terms of fuel savings,
reduced eco footprint and increased efficiencies.

This new technology allows for the use of electrical power to deliver
fracturing fluids to the wellbore during fracturing operations.  This
innovative solution eliminates the use of conventional diesel engines,
transmissions along with their associated emissions, eco-footprint,
maintenance issues and manpower.

Evolution Well Services is an oilfield technology company that provides
mobile, modular, electric-powered high pressure pumping systems for use
in hydraulic fracturing in shale oil & gas fields.

Evolution Well Services recently teamed with GE (NYSE: GE) to use their
mobile TM 2500+ gas turbine unit to generate on-site power.  The
turbine provides fast, high power that is efficient without the
traditional emissions associated with existing applications.

Emissions are estimated to be two-thirds less than conventional
fracturing methods.   This new technology needs 75 percent less
manpower to operate and only produces a total of 88 decibels of sound
compared to 105-108 decibels of each diesel systems.

During the launch event for industry professionals and media, Eldon
Schelske, President says, “going forward there will be two huge
concerns in the industry; not having enough qualified people running
this equipment for us, and doing damage to the environment.  We hope
we’ve addressed environmental concerns with our solution”.
