A shout-out and big congratulations to REV LNG (headquartered near Rochester, NY), one of 12 finalists in this year’s Ben Franklin Shale Gas Innovation Contest. Each year the Ben Franklin Shale Gas Innovation and Commercialization Center conducts a contest looking for the “best shale gas-oriented innovations, new product ideas, or service concepts that are either in the development stage or recently launched.” They are awarding three $25,000 prizes this year.
Through his work with Shale Daily, MDN editor Jim Willis has had the pleasure of working with, and learning about, the unique technology REV LNG has developed. The company is one of the very few in the United States that buys, transports and sets up “mobile filling stations” (at drill pad sites) so drillers can use liquefied natural gas (LNG) to power their equipment. REV LNG’s uniqueness is that it’s a turn-key service. Customers just pay a “per gallon” fee to fill it up, and REV LNG takes care of the rest. We wish them well in the competition!
Here’s the press release and full list of all the very worthy companies selected to be in the final 12:
