Evolution Well Services and CNX Announce First Long-Term Agreement for 100 percent Electric Fracturing Fleet in Appalachian Basin

THE WOODLANDS, TX (June 19, 2018) – Evolution Well Services and CNX Resources Corporation (NYSE: CNX) are pleased to announce a three-year agreement for a 56,000 HHP 100 percent electric fracturing fleet.

Tim Dugan, Chief Operating Officer of CNX commented, “We’re excited to be a first-mover on something that could be a real game changer, and the first company in this basin to commit to such technology on a long-term basis. This has the potential to be the next step change in the efficiency frontier and exactly the kind of technological disruption we’re focused on across the board.”

During the first quarter of 2018, Evolution and CNX began negotiating a long-term agreement to utilize one of Evolution’s 100 percent electric, natural gas-fueled, gas turbine-powered fracturing fleets for strategic basin development.

Evolution’s General Counsel, Gregory Brown, stated, “Throughout the negotiation process, CNX clearly recognized the unique value of Evolution’s technology. We are excited that they have chosen to work with us and look forward to working with them to deploy our evolutionary technology into a market that recognizes the value we bring to clients with our patent-protected technology.”

Evolution’s proven electric pressure pumping equipment is able to save operators up to 95 percent on fuel costs, while operating well below the Environmental Protection Agency’s Tier 4 emission standards. Evolution currently has six electric fleets operating or under construction, representing a total of over 300,000 HHP of capacity.
