Energy ServicesUpstream. Midstream. Downstream. LNG.

From wellhead to burner tip, the expert energy team at EARTHRES will manage the new asset engineering, design, and operations and maintenance engineering for your next upstream, midstream, downstream or small-scale LNG project.  Decades of experience and sound engineering practices, design methods and standards allow us to achieve high reliability and minimal execution risk for our clients, all while still keeping long-term client goals in sight. Our licensed, Professional Engineers are members of AGA, PIOGA, IOGAWV, and OOGA, and hold NACE® certification in corrosion detection and cathodic protection technology.  They also provide professional training on engineering, design, and operations of compressor stations, measurement and regulation stations, transmission, gathering and distribution pipelines, underground storage, and other facilities.

Aerial site mapping, real-time combustible gas monitoring and remote sensing of geohazards on pipelines can help maintain cost effectiveness and compliance on projects for pipeline and facility design. Whether laying out a new well pad for production, installing interstate transmission pipeline or replacing cast iron distribution pipeline and designing or modifying station facilities, our clients can be assured that we employ the latest technologies in all project designs, including:

  • Autodesk® AutoCAD® Plant 3D
  • Autodesk® AutoCAD® Civil 3D
  • Aspen HYSYS®
  • Pipeline Toolbox®
  • Drone Surveying and GIS Mapping
  • Remote Gas Monitoring

EARTHRES’ Energy Services group is also skilled in the regulatory and commercial aspects of the entire natural gas value chain.  Whether you are working on a non-jurisdictional pipeline in the upstream segment, an LNG peaking facility, or anything in between, EARTHRES will support your project needs with engineering and design that meets the project’s commercial and regulatory needs.  We work in both the unregulated and regulated spaces and can help guide project execution to successfully navigate the applicable Federal, State, and Local regulations as applicable.  EARTHRES understands the commercial aspects of the industry segments and uses this expertise to go the extra mile to ensure our clients get engineering, design, and other deliverables that are fit for purpose.

Industry Segments

We take the stress out of our clients’ projects by managing all phases of the permitting process and keeping in line with environmental guidelines and FERC, EPA, OSHA, and State regulations, as required by project complexity and location.  With comprehensive services that include geotechnical investigations, remote combustible gas monitoring, waste processing and disposal engineering, and mineral processing and frac sand sourcing, our trusted oil & gas market experience ensures our clients with successful projects in all market segments.

  • Upstream Services – We take the stress out of our clients’ exploration and production projects by managing all phases of well pad surface facilities development, existing well pad modifications or the well pad deactivation.
  • Midstream Services – EARTHRES supports all aspects of midstream asset development for natural gas, natural gas liquids (NGL) and oil in the Appalachian Basin and beyond, with ‘on the ground presence’ in Marcellus and Utica shale plays. Let us perform the planning and permitting processes, engineering and design, and construction inspection and commissioning.
  • Downstream Services – Beginning with receipt point from transmission or gathering pipelines, EARTHRES has extensive experience in all downstream facilities engineering and distribution systems. Let us design your cast iron and bare steel replacement systems, polyethylene and steel pipelines and networks, including cathodic protection and district regulator station. We engineer large-scale projects involving the replacement of deteriorated distribution systems and design SCADA facilities.
  • Unconventional Gas Services – With on-ground representation in the Marcellus-Utica shale play, we will manage the development of all surface facilities for your unconventional tight and shale gas projects.
  • Operations Engineering Support – Optimize the effectiveness of your operation with our oil & gas facility and pipeline services, including startup, testing, monitoring, dispersion studies, construction oversight, as-builts and 3D modeling, and cathodic protection.
  • Energy Facilities Permitting – Let us navigate the complex web of FERC, DOT, PHMSA, OSHA, EPA, and state regulations to gain proper permitting and maintain compliance for your project.
  • Oil & Gas Construction Engineering Support & Inspection – Let us do the due diligence for the permitting, grading, roadway design, as-builts, project specifications, project management and construction quality assurance (CQA).
  • Energy Environmental Services – Our extensive knowledge in soils, geology and water resource engineering and environmental permitting are crucial for the effectiveness of your operation.  From evaluating the environmental impacts of alternative sites to wetlands delineation to stormwater sampling at operating locations, EARTHRES can manage all of your energy facility’s environmental needs.
