GTUIT receives Montana Ambassadors' award

Billings-based GTUIT has been named the Montana Ambassadors’ 2014 Business of the Year.

The company was started by three engineers who have worked in the oil-and-gas industry for more than 20 years. They pioneered a mobile system for extracting natural gas liquids at the wellhead, reducing the amount of flared gas. The process not only cuts emissions, but allows the gas to be put to productive use instead of being burned off as waste.

The company has been active in the Bakken oilfields, helping oil and gas producers safely reduce flaring, increase oil production, conserve energy and meet environmental regulations.

Montana Gov. Steve Bullock and the Montana Ambassadors made the announcement Feb. 11 in Helena, recognizing several companies and individuals for making outstanding contributions to economic development in Montana.

Bullock also visited GTUIT in Billings on Thursday to present the award.

Brian Cebull, president and CEO, Mark Peterson, chief operating officer, and Jim Haider, chief technology officer, founded the firm in 2011. Christian Orms, chief financial officer, and George Chedsey, director of business development, round out the company’s leadership team.

Cebull said the company has a

passion to find innovative solutions to further reduce emissions and create more uses for the wellhead gas, while staying focused on service and safety.

“Many of the Bakken’s leading producers are our clients,” he said. “We’re excited to work with them and other oilfield companies to prevent waste of this valuable energy resource and develop profitable outlets for flared and conditioned gas.”

GTUIT was nominated for the Montana Ambassadors award by Steve Holland and Greg Kohn.
