    GASFRAC wins Gold at 2014 Edison Awards

    GASFRAC Energy Services Inc.

    GASFRAC Energy Services Inc. has been voted a Gold winner for innovation at the 27th Annual Edison Awards, held April 30 in San Francisco. GASFRAC won top honors in the Energy & Sustainability category for its Vantage Frac waterless fracturing process.

    The ballot of nominees for the Edison Awards was judged by a panel of more than 3,000 business executives including past award winners, academics, and leaders in the fields of product development, design, engineering, science and medical.

    GASFRAC’s Vantage Frac process is a closed stimulation process and injection method utilizing gelled LPG rather than conventional frac fluids. LPG gel properties such as low surface tension, low viscosity, low density combine to create more effective fracturing lengths that enable higher initial and long-term production of the well. The gel process also allows for 100% recovery of fracturing fluids within days of stimulation – leading to economic and environmental benefits such as a reduction in cleanup, waste disposal, and post-job truck traffic.
