3 Reasons to Choose a Natural Gas-Powered Generator

One drawback of diesel-fueled generators is that the fuel itself can be very costly to obtain and transport. Diesel also causes harmful emissions that can hurt the environment. If your business takes the environment — and the bottom line — seriously, generators powered by natural gas could be the solution you need. Here are three benefits of choosing natural gas-powered generators.

As anyone who deals with fuel sources will tell you, diesel is quite expensive right now, especially when compared to the low cost of natural gas. Hauling diesel is also expensive, since you have to pay for the diesel that powers the gas trucks as well!

Clean-Burning Energy

Natural gas produces fewer harmful emissions when compared to other common fuel sources. Diesel is one of the dirtier-burning fuels. The environment is the legacy we will leave for later generations, so many businesses are trying to make healthier choices in that regard.

Easy Availability

While gasoline and diesel fuel need to be shipped in, there are many work sites where natural gas can be extracted on site. This will eliminate shipping costs, and give you ready access to the energy.

We have portable generators that run on natural gas and other fuels. If you have any questions, we’ll be happy to help. Give us a call today!

Generator Paralleling: Is It Right For Me?

generator powering oilfieldIt is no secret that a generator must be the right size: too much power is a waste of energy, and too little won’t supply enough energy to keep your industrial site going. An ideal solution to your precise power equation may be generator paralleling: by pairing two or more generators of the same output, you can supply closer to the exact amount of energy you need without drastically exceeding your requirements. To help you explore if generator paralleling is right for your oilfield or industrial site, we walk through the basics here.

Paralleling Advantages

Advances in recent technology have made generator pairing much more efficient, practical, and affordable. Digital control technology helps monitor your usage and ensure your equipment performs its best. Utilizing paralleled generators increases the reliability of power at your site as the energy load can be distributed among multiple units if one unit fails.

Generator paralleling also allows for the units to be spread out (or localized if you prefer), which negates the need to carve out a large area of space to house a huge generator or a cluster of generators. But no matter your industrial or oilfield power generation needs, the experienced, trained technicians at Baseline Energy Services is on call 24/7 to service your energy needs. Call us today at 817-889-0056!

Choosing an Industrial Generator

oilfield generatorThere is no “one size fits all” formula when it comes to choosing an industrial generator. When accounting for emissions regulations and the precise needs of your industrial project, choosing the proper generator becomes all the more important to save money and to generate and consume power efficiently. Here we discuss a few types of generators to help you explore the ideal setup for your power needs.

Natural Gas Generators

Natural gas is one of the most affordable and clean-burning fuels available. Second in affordability only behind coal, natural gas is infinitely more clean and efficient than coal. When being burned, natural gas does not emit a foul odor, which is a concern with many other types of fuel. Baseline Energy Services offers 50, 80, 100, 135, 175, 235, 350, and 1250 KW generators with 24/7 service!

Propane Generators

Propane is a highly popular fuel for industrial power settings, as propane is emission compliant and has a long shelf life. One of the huge benefits of propane is that it can be stored in large (or small) tanks so you can keep large amounts of fuel on hand in case of a shortage or other events that may prevent you from otherwise accessing the ability to refuel. Baseline Energy Services offers propane generators in 50, 80, 100, 135, 175, 235, 350, and 1250 KW.

Generating Oilfield Power

pipelinePowering an oilfield can be a huge undertaking, but the time and effort invested in researching and procuring the right equipment will pay off huge in the long run. Grid power is often the first solution to come to mind but it can be difficult to obtain and take months to install. Here we walk through the basics of generators, an ideal solution for powering an oilfield.

Portable and semi-permanent generators are some of the most practical power solutions for oilfields and industrial use. Generators are often thought of as a temporary option, but they reliably service industrial applications long-term as well. Natural gas, propane, and diesel generators can be sized to provide the perfect amount of power, allowing you to run all the necessary components without paying for excess power that isn’t used or needed.

Oilfields and industrial sites are often in remote locations that are not already equipped with grid power. The cost and length of time required to install grid power can exponentially exceed the cost and time needed to procure generator power.

Using The Proper Sized Generator

workerAfter years of working with power generation, the team at Baseline has discovered that many projects are fitted with oversized generators. While this certainly provides the energy you may need, it may also be generating more energy than necessary for your project, ultimately increasing costs. To help you understand the importance of using the right sized generator, we briefly walk through the specifics of generator size here.

Size Matters

No one wants to pay for extra power they don’t need. When you are starting to work with a power company, be sure to investigate to see if they have the right experience and technology to properly size the generator you will need for your project. While it seems to be common sense that an accurately loaded generator will deliver excellent run time and result in a lower cost per kilowatt, the truth is that more generators than you think are improperly sized.

At Baseline Energy Services, we have a wide range of experience and equipment to help supply you with the proper materials for your energy needs. We specialize in power equipment for customers in the industrial, oilfield, and other similar sectors. For reliable power equipment, call our team today at 817-889-0056! 

A simple explanation of natural gas formation

natural gasHave you ever wondered where we get natural gas and how it was formed in the first place? Read on! The U.S. Department of Energy has explained the entire process in layman’s terms.

The main ingredient is methane, which is a gas or compound composed of one carbon atom and four hydrogen atoms. Millions of years ago, the decayed remains of plants and animals began building up in thick layers. Over time, sand and silt changed to rock and covered the organic remains, trapping it beneath the rock. Pressure and heat changed some of the organic material into coal, some into oil (petroleum) and some into tiny bubbles of odorless natural gas. 

But wait, you’re may be thinking, why does natural gas have an odor today? Before it’s distributed, a chemical called mercaptan is added. This gives it a distinct, unpleasant odor that makes the gas smell like rotten eggs. They do this as a safety precaution to be able to detect possible leaks.

Geologists use seismic surveys to find the right places to drill for natural gas. Seismic surveys use echoes from a vibration source at the earth’s surface to collect information about the rocks beneath. If the site seems promising, drilling commences.

Did you know that most of the natural gas consumed in the United States is produced here? Another interesting fact: We now use machines called “digesters” to turn organic material (plants, animal waste, etc.) into natural gas. This means we no longer have to wait millions of years for the gas to form on its own.
