Why Choose Well Site Guard Oil Spill Containment Equipment?
Revolutionizing Oil Spill Containment Equipment
When Well Site Guard entered the market, oil spill containment units, to us, seemed substandard. Most of these units used plastic basins that could crack and caulking not designed for oily conditions.
We intended to change that and find a far stronger solution that would benefit the industry, the communities it works in and the environment. We wanted to create a win-win-win.
During research and development, our engineers interviewed operators all over North America, asking what features and benefits they would like to see in oil spill containment equipment. We listened for a full 10 years, gaining a great deal of valuable insight as we perfected our solution.
The State of the Industry and Containing Oil Spills
Since the first days of oil and gas production, foremen, operators and producers have expended considerable resources cleaning up leaks and spills at the wellhead.
Meanwhile, environmental concerns continue to rise. The need to stop contamination of our groundwater, streams and waterways grows more pressing. And despite our response in the form of new technologies and controls, today’s media focuses not on the good we do but the few failures we have.
The oil and gas industry require a social license to operate. Positive public perception has diminished through the years, and we must adapt to a higher standard to reduce our environmental footprint.
The Environmental Stewardship Challenge
No production site can avoid wellhead leakage. Stuffing box seals wear over time through repetitive polished-rod motion or premature seal failure from contaminants and manufacturing defects. Even a small leak can lead to these direct and indirect costs:
- Environmental damage
- Higher premiums for liability coverage
- Fines from regulatory agencies
- Production loss
- Increased staff turnover as discouraged employees leave
- Hiring and training time for replacement workers
- Salaries of recovery and replacement workers
- Damage to your community reputation and company profile
