Delaware-based technology company TekSolv, was awarded the 2014 Shale Gas EH&S Award for their development of TekNet™ – a commercially available gas detection sensor system.
The 2nd Annual Shale Gas Environmental, Health, & Safety Award was presented at the SHALE INSIGHT 2014™ Technology Showcase event. The Technology Showcase, sponsored by the SGICC, is the highlight of the Marcellus Shale Coalition’s SHALE INSIGHT 2014™ Pre-Conference Workshop and Conference.
The awarded TekNet™ Gas Detection System effectively identifies explosive build-up of dangerous gases during the drilling and fracking process. The technology brings an entirely new platform to market that is especially effective and accurate at monitoring the build-up of gases in wet gas operations, a focus of the shale energy play today.
Bill Hall, Executive Director of SGICC commented, “It is paramount to the success of the shale energy industry that they operate in an environmentally responsible, safe manner, continuing to earn the trust and respect of the average citizen, as well as the workers they employ, and the communities in which they operate. Ben Franklin’s Shale Gas Innovation and Commercialization Centre is proud to make the announcement of our second annual EH&S award to TekSolv.”
“We are beyond thrilled and honoured to be recognized by the Ben Franklin Shale Gas Innovation & Commercialization Center for our real-time gas detection safety sensor system, TekNetTM,” stated John Mouser, President of TekSolv.
The Ben Franklin Shale Gas Innovation and Commercialization Centre, an initiative of Ben Franklin Technology Partners/CNP is designed to harness innovation and new technologies as a means to maximize the economic return to Pennsylvania’s citizens from the various shale formations comprise part of the energy reserves of the Commonwealth. The Centre also identifies, supports and helps commercialize technologies and early-stage businesses that enhance responsible stewardship of the environment while properly utilizing this transformative energy asset.
