Quantum Fuel Systems (Quantum), a fully integrated alternative energy company, has been selected by NexTier Oilfield Solutions (NexTier) to deliver virtual pipeline trailers for compressed natural gas (CNG) for delivery in Q2 2023. The delivery will secure the next phase of growth for NexTier as it continues to expand its Power Solutions business.

This contract marks the second year NexTier has exclusively secured Quantum’s VPLite45/40 trailers for the delivery and storage of CNG to NexTier’s hydraulic fracturing fleet. The trailers are equipped with high-capacity, super-lightweight CNG storage tanks, which are uniquely mounted to optimize gas capacity to have an industry leading system capacity of up to 472,000 standard cubic feet. The VPLite45/40 trailer also has numerous advanced safety features, including single-switch tank isolation and a door-activated parking brake switch.

“We are excited NexTier continues to rely on Quantum for their virtual pipeline trailering needs as a way to support their commitment to responsible operations including lowering costs and emissions,” said Steve Toelke, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Infrastructure at Quantum. “Having a strategic partner like NexTier is a testament to the expertise and value our company and employees continually strive to provide to our customers.”
