U.S. Well Services (NASDAQ: USWS) (“USWS” or the “Company”) today announced it is preparing to commence operations on a 5 well pad located in Monongalia County, W.Va. for Northeast Natural Energy LLC (“NNE”). This project will be NNE’s first well completion using an all-electric hydraulic fracturing fleet.
“Northeast Natural Energy is focused on minimizing the environmental footprint of our operations,” said Mike John, CEO of Northeast Natural Energy. “Utilizing an all-electric hydraulic fracturing fleet is a logical next step for us, and we have been exploring different options for some time.

We are proud to be the first private equity backed exploration company in the Marcellus to use a new-generation all-electric fleet in our completions,” John added.
