Did you ever ask yourself “Why are we building this pad here?”There are several factors that determine the final location of well pads.
  • Geology
  • Geography
  • Topography
  • Landowners
  • Leases
  • Cost
  • Wetlands
  • Streams
  • Springs
  • Houses
  • Infrastructure
  • Access
geology
Geology
  • The Geology Department in Warrendale, PA works to identify locations that maximize extraction of natural gas from the Marcellus Formation.
  • Use of seismic studies allows Geologists to identify the rock formations.
  • Subsurface features such as faults and fractures in the bedrock play a major role in the location determination.
  • Based upon leases, geography and subsurface geology, well locations are identified on a topographic map.
landman
Landman
  • Works with Geology to “fine tune” the locations.
  • Works with the landowners to discuss proposed locations and access.
  • Negotiates fees with the landowners associated with damages incurred from tree removal, surface damages, crop damages, etc.
  • Works with surveyors to identify Unit boundaries, property boundaries, etc.
  • Interacts with the Projects Group and Staking Committee to visit the site and determine if the proposed location is adequate.
projects group
Projects Group
  • Works with the Landman to locate a suitable location to build a well pad.
  • Works with the Engineering subcontractors to evaluate site conditions and construction integrity.
  • Identifies how to build the well pad in a cost effective, safe, environmentally friendly way.
  • Tracks sites to ensure that construction of the well pads is completed before the drilling schedule.
  • Ensures that essential aspects of construction such as erosion & sedimentation permitting, HOP permitting, road bonds, excavation subcontractors, tree removal, materials, quarries, trucking, etc. are in place.
engineering
Engineering
  • Creates figures showing aerial photographs and surface contours of proposed location.
  • Attends Staking Committee meetings with biologists and engineers to identify wetlands, streams, springs, etc.
  • Completes E&S permitting, HOP permitting, engineering of pads, stream crossing, wetlands encroachment, etc.
  • Completes construction drawings and layouts of well pads prior to construction.
  • Performs compliance visits at well pads to ensure that E&S controls are installed to permitted requirements.
construction
Construction
  • Reviews construction drawings and permits to identify proper construction of well pads.
  • Mobilize equipment to sites suitable to build the location.
  • Installs E&S controls per the permitted design.
  • Builds the well pad per the permitted design.
  • Performs well pad and road maintenance during construction, drilling, completions, etc.
  • Reclaims the site per permitted specifications.
