May 15, 2014 Optimum Pumping Technology Named One of Four Winners of the Shale Gas Innovation Contest

Pittsburgh, PA. —On May 15th in Southpointe, PA during the 3rd Annual Shale Gas Innovation Contest, Optimum Pumping Technology walked away with a winner’s check for $25,000.

Bill Hall, SGICC Director commented, “We were very pleased with the quality of this year’s applications. Reducing from over 80 entries to the 13 finalists was an arduous task. The judges did a fantastic job analyzing all of the applications. The four winners are all impressive examples of innovation on display. These companies identified a challenge the shale energy industry faces and developed impressive solutions ready to be implemented.”

Glen Chatfield, President of Optimum Pumping Technology noted, “We’ve been on a long journey to bring our product to market, and this award is so exciting for us! The competition is so stiff, and to be named a winner in this contest lets the industry know that we have developed a product that they need to investigate. The interactions we’ve had with the Shale Gas Innovation Center have been great, and as a Ben Franklin funded company through Innovation Works here in Pittsburgh, I can personally attest to the value of the Ben Franklin organization to entrepreneurs across the state of Pennsylvania.”

Joe Frantz, Vice President of Engineering for Range Resources-Appalachia was one of the judges at this year’s finals event. He noted, “I’ve worked with SGICC since its inception, and I really enjoyed the engagement in the Innovation Contest this year. Their process used to uncover innovations is a real value for the industry.”

Dante Bonaquist, Senior Corporate Fellow, R&D at Praxair, a sponsor company and judge noted, “Through the Shale Gas Innovation Contest, SGICC brings together a broad range of promising ideas covering production, transportation and utilization. From the technology scouting perspective, there is no better opportunity to see high caliber shale gas related innovations on display at a single event.”

Morgantown, W.Va.—Optimum Pumping Technology, of Pittsburgh, Pa., was named a “Best of Transtech 2013” by a panel of experts at the 2nd Annual TransTech Energy Business Development Conference held recently in Morgantown, W.Va. The conference, which focuses on technologies that can transition today’s economy to a more efficient, lower carbon, industrially competitive economy of the future, was hosted by the Energy Efficiency Division of the National Research Center for Coal and Energy at West Virginia University.

The company received a $10,000 grant to support its business development activities. It was one of six award winners selected by the experts.

Twenty-three TransTech concepts were pitched to panels of investors and industry experts who judged the presentations according to the investment attractiveness of the company, the level of innovativeness, and competitive potential.
Optimum Pumping Technology won for its patent-pending piping manifolds for natural gas pumping stations. According to the company president, Glen Chatfield, the innovative design of the manifolds delivers 30 percent greater gas flow capacity, a 20 percent increase in compressor operating efficiency, and a 20 percent reduction in carbon dioxide emissions. The company plans to conduct full-scale field tests in 2014, funded by six major corporations.
