Oil & Gas
Some news reports have stated that erosion and sediment control are among the most frequent violations committed by oil and gas extraction operations – not safety violations, not noise violations – erosion control. States do require reclamation of inactive well sites. Road restoration. Protection of habitat and wetlands. Noxious weed management. Loosening compacted soil revegetation. It was recently reported that more than 20,000 inactive wells in Colorado alone had not been restored – with 72% having been in the process for more than five years. Such instances have led several states to update manuals for Erosion Control (EC), BMPs and establish time limits for reclamation efforts.
Every pipeline excavated and built, regardless of distance or flow capacity, requires substantial vegetation removal and use of heavy equipment. Soil and vegetation disruption leads to erosion, cost overruns, and time delays. Proper erosion control practices can be your safeguard against such problems and punitive fines.
Drilling Site Applications
The installation and operation of oil & gas drilling sites create erosion hazards through compacted soil, vegetation degradation, access road development, and others. Proper erosion control and sediment control practices can be your safeguard against such problems and punitive fines.
