Six fleets in the Permian

Liberty’s Quiet Fleet

Liberty became known in the industry in 2016 when it debuted its “Quiet Fleet™. These low-noise frac fleets are becoming popular with operators who have fracing operations on surface locations adjacent to residential neighborhoods or other highly populated areas.

The low-noise equipment helps to lessen the nuisance factor in the immediate area, and overall lower noise levels help reduce fatigue and stress levels of personnel working at the site, Liberty said.

Liberty has deployed its Quiet Fleet™ to “bedroom community” oil and gas development sites in Colorado in partnership with Extraction Oil & Gas.

Liberty went public in January of 2018. In its 2017 10 K, Liberty reported 21 hydraulic fracturing fleets plus additional supporting HHP, comprising approximately 885,000 HHP.

Liberty said it expects to have a total of 24 active fleets by the end of 2018, with six of its fleets currently utilizing the Liberty Quiet Fleet ™ technology, with three additional ordered fleets currently being built to the Quiet Fleet ™ specifications. Liberty said approximately 40% of its capacity has dual fuel capability. The average age of Liberty’s fleets is approximately 3.75 years, according to the company’s 10K filing.
