For many people, the most pressing question concerning nearby unconventional resources development is: “Will my drinking water be safe?”
We take protective measures to properly design and construct oil and gas wells. Multiple layers of steel casing and cement are used in well construction.
We test the casing and cement jobs to ensure they do not create a pathway for oil and gas to enter the water table. In addition, hydraulic fracturing completions are closely monitored and managed to ensure that the pressures involved do not exceed well design parameters.
