Do you have wells that were put in prior to World War II? Watch as our President, Brian Chastain, shares some things to consider if you must perform wellsite remediation on those wells.
Hi, I’m Brian Chastain, here with the latest from our video series, Project Dynamix!
Do you have wells that were put in prior to World War II?
We’ve found that access to those sites can be a problem.
Here are some things to consider if you must perform wellsite remediation on those wells:
First, do you have legal access?
Are there public roads to get to location and can you get the equipment needed over those roads?
Is the access road wide enough?
Are trees cut back?
Are the turns wide enough?
On the site itself, do you have enough room to monitor the equipment and safely walk around and view everything?
Does what we see at the site match the prints?
Also consider the terrain, and environmental factors, such as nearby streams, swamps, marshes, and encroachments.
This refers not only to third-party encroachments, structures, fences, and things that are obvious, but sometimes things that aren’t so obvious, such as underground mining, and pipelines owned by other operators/utilities.
These are all types of things we investigate. Not only when we’re going to do a project, but on a yearly or monthly basis to make sure that if there’s an emergency, you can access your locations.
If you have any questions, give Dynamix a call. One of our subject matter experts will happily assist you. We will come to your location and do an evaluation to make sure there aren’t risks that you may have missed.
