WHO WE ARE

REVOLUTION Turbine Technologies (RTT) is the clean energy partner for oil & gas operators ready to leverage smart, waste energy recovery, to generate emission free power for remote operations. RTT’s solution is a micro-Expansion Turbine System (mETS) that generates zero emission power for digital oilfield and pipeline initiatives through the recovery of excess gas pressure.

The mETS system can be used in conjunction with a gas lift system on remote unmanned offshore platforms, at many locations within natural gas distribution networks, at onshore well heads, or anywhere else where a gas pressure differential exists. The mETS technology has the power to transform remote oil and gas operations as we know it, by eliminating CO2 emitting combustion generators and methane emitting valves & controllers, providing scalable, modular power with advanced connectivity.

REVOLUTION Turbine Technologies is meeting the most demanding power generation challenges of today and tomorrow with a highly experienced team of entrepreneurs, technology developers, and innovators.

OUR HISTORY

REVOLUTION’s history dates all the way back to 1990. During this long journey, we have accomplished notable milestones including numerous field trials, significant technological advances and built an impressive IP portfolio. Our rich history has positioned RTT to leverage this traction as we transition into final pilots and commercialization.

January 1990

1990

Natural Gas Turbine Technologies, Inc. was formed to develop and commercialize the company’s “bladeless turbine” technology, using the flow of natural gas to generate electricity.

January 1991

1991

The first GT-150 turbine (150W output) was deployed with a Minnesota-based natural gas distribution utility. It ran continuously for 15 years and was still running when it was finally taken out of service in October 2006.

January 2004

2004

Weatherford International approached NGTT about building a 400W high-pressure unit for use in Chevron’s offshore facility in Cabinda, Angola. NGTT designed and built a larger, upgraded 400W prototype high pressure unit to satisfy these requirements.

January 2006

2006

After a successful offshore pilot test, Chevron Angola orders ten GT-400 turbines.

January 2007

2007

NGTT executes a five-year exclusive worldwide distribution contract with Weatherford International, intending to grow the market for the GT-400 turbine.

January 2009

2009

Through the Weatherford agreement, one GT-400 unit is supplied to Pemex for trial, and three units are supplied to Chevron – Gulf of Mexico.

January 2010

2010

US patents are awarded to NGTT. Weatherford pilots the GT-400 in the Gulf of Mexico, and one unit is supplied to Shell – Nigeria.

January 2012

2012

Weatherford agreement lapses. Unable to raise capital to further develop the turbine, NGTT Founder and owner decides to wind down operations.

January 2014

2014

Christopher Bean learns of the technology and acquires the patent portfolio as NGTT is liquidated.

January 2015

2015

Christopher Bean officially forms the company and executes a joint development agreement with a global oil & gas producer in Southeast Asia. With $1M+ in non-dilutive R&D funding, RTT begins development of a 3rd generation, 1kW turbine, significantly improving the efficiency and functionality over the previous design.

January 2016

2016

Four full-scale working prototypes of the 1 kW turbine are completed.

January 2017

2017

RTT completes TRL 4 lab testing of the I kW turbine and validates performance and smart functionality.

January 2019

2019

REVOLUTION files the latest round of patents in the U.S., UK, Canada, and Malaysia

January 2020

2020

RTT is accepted into the inaugural cohort of cleantech startups at Greentown Labs – Houston, and initiates a strategic pivot toward remote, onshore applications in upstream and midstream operations, in support of operators’ need for clean, reliable electric power to meet net zero commitments.

January 2021

2021

Tim Moor and John Jeffers join Christopher Bean at RTT as co-founders and assume leadership roles. RTT engages strategic industry partners for final design, testing and manufacturing of field-ready prototypes in anticipation of pilot projects in 2022. RTT relocates corporate HQ from North Carolina to Houston, TX.
