CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/01/14 -- GASFRAC Energy Services Inc., with headquarters in Calgary and operations in Alberta and Texas, announced today it has been voted a Gold winner for innovation at the 27th Annual Edison Awards, held yesterday at the Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco. GASFRAC won top honours in the Energy & Sustainability category for its Vantage® Frac waterless fracturing process.
Being recognized with an Edison Award has become one of the highest accolades a company can receive in the name of innovation and business. The awards are named after Thomas Alva Edison (1847-1931) whose inventions, new product development methods and innovative achievements literally changed the world, garnered him 1,093 U.S. patents, and made him a household name around the world.
The ballot of nominees for the Edison Awards(TM) was judged by a panel of more than 3,000 leading 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 per cent recovery of fracturing fluids within days of stimulation - leading to economic and environmental benefits such as a reduction in clean-up, waste disposal and post-job truck traffic.
