Capstone Further Penetrates the Oil and Gas Market in Russia With Two Orders
Totaling 24MW

CHATSWORTH, Calif., Jan. 6, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capstone Turbine
Corporation ( (Nasdaq:CPST), the world's leading clean
technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, today announced that
it recently received two orders totaling 24MW from its Russian distribution
partner BPC Engineering for new associated gas and pipeline projects.

The low-emission Capstone microturbines will be installed at modular power
stations. Several of the microturbines will be fueled by untreated associated
gas from well sites that otherwise would be flared. Associated gas utilization
for power will allow the customer to avoid costly emissions penalties and to
significantly reduce power costs at the oil field level. Globally, about 140
billion cubic meters of associated gas are estimated to be burned or wasted
annually. Recent estimates put the amount of flared or wasted associated gas
in Russia at close to 40 billion cubic meters per year.

"Russian oil and gas producers continue to adopt Capstone's microturbine
technology because of its inherent reliability and ability to burn associated
gas that contains up to seven percent hydrogen sulfides without requiring
treatment equipment," said Alexander Skorokhodov, BPC Engineering Chief
Executive Officer.

"Russia continues to be Capstone's top international oil and gas market," said
Jim Crouse, Capstone's Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "We
are also seeing significant interest from producers in Africa, the Middle East
and the United States for Capstone's highly reliable and low maintenance
associated gas products," added Crouse.

"BPC Engineering continues to be a very strong partner for Capstone and today
has over 1,200 Capstone units successfully operating throughout their
territory," said Darren Jamison, Capstone's President and Chief Executive
