OKLAHOMA CITY - SandRidge Energy Inc. will test systems that provide electrical power from natural gas at one of its well sites in northern Oklahoma. The test with Green Field Energy Services Inc. is expected to be conducted by the end of the year.
The Oklahoma City-based oil company has agreed to let Green Field Energy Services Inc. provide power to a well in northern Oklahoma's Mississippian formation from natural gas being produced there.
"We're excited to be part of this groundbreaking test in which our well will be producing on artificial lift without the use of an external fuel source to power the downhole pump," spokesman Greg Dewey said.
"This technology has the potential to significantly reduce our operating expenses and our environmental impact at the same time."
