Kentucky-based Wellhead Energy Systems has developed a way to convert natural gas to electricity at the well and feed it into the power grid. Wellhead installed the first station in Jackson County because the coop Jackson Energy has worked closely with the company. This strategy would involve tapping so-called “stranded” gas wells to generate electricity. Stranded wells are wells that have been drilled but are not producing. The developer of this technology says the idea would create income from a gas well that’s not producing any cash now and provide electricity at competitive prices from a source that burns more cleanly than coal, which currently provides over 90 percent of Kentucky’s electricity. Because the Jackson County station is connected to a gas pipeline, not a stranded well, Wellhead has decided to use the pipeline supply in order to fulfill a responsibility to Jackson Energy and get a station to demonstrate the technology. More information on this technology can be found in this article.
