Shale Play

Over the past few years, advances in technology have allowed for the discovery and drilling of abundant natural gas supplies within shale plays across the United States and Canada. These shale plays are often located in remote field locations, far from traditional material supply sources which presents a challenge to operators. Operators require access to quick turn materials as wells are drilled and completed, including pipe, complementary fittings, flanges and valves as well as, hoses, tools, pumper and oil country supplies, and unions.

With complex large-scale drilling programs, managing material requirements and delivery schedules can be a moving target for operators.
