The Benefits of Effective Site Completion

Reclaiming the land around a natural gas well typically involves contouring and landscaping the land to restore it to pre-drilling conditions, or as close to those conditions as possible. When the process is finished, all that should be left behind are a wellhead on a clean concrete pad, a small number of water storage tanks and a metering system that will monitor the production of gas at the site.

Our attorneys help facilitate the site completion process, including aiding our clients in finding skilled contractors to perform the cleanup. Some issues involved in cleanup are:

  • Cleaning wastewater
  • Cleaning concrete well pads
  • Disposing of contaminated liners
  • Removing waste from air emissions
  • Disposing of frac water

The benefits of effective site cleanup include:

  • Mitigates environmental impact
  • Strengthens relationships with landowners
  • Enhances the company's reputation in the community and the industry

By working with Wright & Reihner P.C., you can help ensure that company builds good will in the areas in which it operates and abides by all applicable laws and regulations.
