10 September 2015: Houston, Tx – Aggreko, the global leader in rental power, heating, cooling and oil-free compressor rentals, has been named a category finalist in the 2015 Southwest and Midcontinent Oil & Gas Awards that will take place Thursday, October 15, 2015 at the Westin Dallas Park Central. The annual awards recognize the outstanding achievements made within the upstream and midstream sectors of the North American oil and gas industry and celebrate advances made in the key areas of environment, efficiency, innovation, corporate social responsibility and health and safety.
Aggreko is a finalist in the VZ Environmental Award for Excellence in Environmental Stewardship category that recognizes any efforts, initiatives or technological developments that have minimized or eliminated the environmental footprint of the oil and gas industry within the region. The company has been nominated for its natural gas power generation solution that leverages stranded gas collected from the well-head that might have otherwise been flared. By integrating stranded gas into its temporary power equipment, Aggreko’s solution reduces field emissions that are generated from flaring and diesel power generation, as well as lowers fuel costs.
The Oil & Gas Awards were created to enable oil and gas companies to celebrate their successes and show their commitment to critical issues to the general public and non-industry press. With a regional focus on public interest initiatives, the awards showcase efforts and gains made by oil and gas industry companies, as well as the companies that support them.
