With the technological advancements and refinements made in horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing operations, production of unconventional gas resources now surpasses the production of conventional resources. While conventional gas resources – those produced using a vertical-only well bore to one or more pay horizons and incorporating hydraulic fracturing – are still used by producers, unconventional gas resources – those produced using a combination vertical and horizontal well bore and lateral to one pay horizon and incorporating hydraulic fracturing – are the targets of choice today. EARTHRES’ location in the heart of the Appalachian Basin, home to the prolific Marcellus Shale and Utica Shale formations, makes us local to the Appalachian Basin and the operators working there. Being local positions us to be reachable, competitive, and responsive.
While the facilities required to develop conventional and unconventional gas resources are similar in many ways, the equipment, material, manpower and other facets of developing unconventional resources are generally larger than developing conventional gas resources. As such, the services used to develop unconventional gas resources can be modified and applied to developing conventional gas resources.
EARTHRES’ services specific to the development of unconventional gas resources can begin with conceptual well pad siting and development and can conclude with site monitoring for the presence of gas during flowback and initial production. Our full suite of services includes, but is not limited to, the following:
EARTHRES has been providing services in the unconventional gas arena since 2012. We have participated in the growth of this segment of the industry. As a member of the Independent Oil and Gas Association of West Virginia (IOGA WV), the Pennsylvania Independent Oil and Gas Association (PIOGA), and the Ohio Oil and Gas Association (OOGA), EARTHRES works diligently with you to maximize the cost-effective development of unconventional gas resources. We have first-hand knowledge of what works best in well pad and pipeline development. Let us put that knowledge to work for you.
