Nevada Inventor Richard Langson Presented at the SMU Conference on Geothermal Energy Utilization Associated with Oil & Gas Development
Carson City, NV (June 21, 2011) – Richard Langson, President/Founder of Langson Energy, spoke at the SMU Conference on Geothermal Energy Utilization Associated with Oil & Gas Development, in Dallas on June 15. This focused two-day conference brought together leaders from both business and research to discuss specific issues relevant to expanding geothermal electrical production in oil and gas fields. Langson will discuss how the “disruptive technology” behind Langson Energy’s Total Flow Gas Letdown Generator provides an efficient alternative that makes use of wasted energy in natural gas pipelines at pressure let-down stations, converting the let-down pressure into usable electricity for a mere 1/4 cent per kW.
These Total Flow Generators can also utilize the pressure in geothermal wells and the tremendous pressure in the millions of capped and abandoned oil and gas wells to generate power at the same low costs. Much of the high costs associated with drilling geothermal wells can be eliminated at abandoned oil and gas wells.

Langson Energy’s Richard Langson
Unveiled Latest Invention at Gastech 2011
Carson City, NV (April 5, 2011) – Carson City’s Richard Langson presented his latest invention, the Total Flow Gas Letdown Generator, at the Center of Technical Excellence (CoTE) during Gastech 2011, which took place March 21-24 at the Amsterdam RAI, The Netherlands.
During his presentation to oil and gas executives from around the world, Langson discussed how in gas pressure let-down stations and city gates, natural gas is traditionally directed through pressure reduction valves. He went on to explain how the “disruptive technology” behind Langson Energy’s Total Flow Gas Letdown Generator, provides an efficient alternative that makes use of the wasted energy, converting the let-down pressure of the natural gas into usable electricity for a mere 1/4 cent per kW.
Attendees were particularly intrigued by the lower capital costs involved with the machine. “We modify readily available and proven off-the-shelf components, keeping the capital investment to implement our machine to a fraction of what would be required for a turbine installation,” Langson explained. “Helical screw technology has a proven track record of literally millions of hours of operation and tens of thousands of installations worldwide. It has proven itself to be reliable, durable and truly cost effective.”
Richard K. Langson is a proven entrepreneur and innovator over four decades in business. The accolades he earned with his previous company, include the Wall Street Journal’s 2009 Energy Technology Innovation award, 2009 Entrepreneur of the Year, Popular Science Magazine’s 2008 “Best of What’s New” award and the Geothermal Energy Association’s 2007 prize for “Best of Show.” For more information on Langson and the Total Flow Gas Pressure Generator, visit www.LangsonEnergy.com.
