Savings of Millions over 10 year consulting tenure.
Obtained reduced waste sampling requirements for all gas drilling in PA Marcellus drilling operations.
Reduction from one sample per hole to one sample per pad
Average Savings of $14K Per Well Pad
No Rig Downtime
Develop innovative methods, designs, and programs to address special problems.
Zero drilling days lost due to environmental issues.
No fines for most incidences. Lowest fines for major issues. No media coverage.
Down Hole Geologic: Examination of deep core rock samples for vugs, porosity, mineral composition, etc. Addition of short string to reduce produced water during drilling of surface casing. Sealing off aquifers reduced water disposal and offered protection of groundwater.
