Global Energy Services is Going Green with Bullfrog Power
Oilfield services company supports clean, green power
Toronto, October 10, 2007 -- Calgary-based oil and gas services company, Global Energy Services Ltd. (TSX-V: GLK), today announced a significant step to lessen its environmental impact through an agreement to purchase 100 per cent green power from Bullfrog Power.
Bullfrog Power is a leading Canadian provider of 100 per cent green electricity. In Alberta, Bullfrog's green electricity is sourced from made-in-Alberta wind power that is EcoLogoM certified under the federal government's Environmental ChoiceM Program.
Under the agreement, Global Energy Services will purchase 100 per cent green power for its offices in Calgary, Grande Prairie and Barrhead. Bullfrog Power will ensure that the amount of electricity used at these offices is produced from clean, renewable power and injected onto the Alberta grid on behalf of Global Energy Services.
Global Energy Services Ltd. is a production services and oilfield communications company for Alberta's growing energy industry. Global sells its Activator hydraulic submersible pump (HSP) to major energy production companies. In 2006, The Pembina Institute, a leading independent, not-for-profit environmental policy research, education and consulting organization, assessed the HSP as a "best practice" product compared with competing technologies.
"Becoming bullfrogpowered is our first of many planned steps toward environmental innovation," says Farhan Farshori, Global Energy Services' Vice President, Corporate Development. "Our company's hallmark is technological innovation in the oilfield, but we want to demonstrate equal innovation in our environmental practices throughout our operations. Going green is good business and choosing Bullfrog Power was an easy way to help green our operations."
"We're delighted to welcome Global Energy Services to the community of bullfrogpowered businesses in Alberta," said Theresa Howland, VP Western Region, Bullfrog Power. "By choosing to support clean, emission-free wind power generated here in Alberta, Global Energy is taking real action to reduce the company's environmental footprint and help address climate change. As our first oil patch client, Global Energy sets a good example for others in the industry to follow."
