APACHE NOTES NEW RESOURCE PLAY WITH ALPINE HIGH

  • UNCATEGORIZED

After 2 years of extensive geologic and geophysical work, Apache Corp. estimates its southern Delaware basin Alpine High play to contain 75 tcf of rich gas and 3 billion bbl of oil in 4,000-5,000 ft of stacked pay in up to five distinct formations including Bone Springs, Wolfcamp, Pennsylvanian, Barnett, and Woodford.
The Houston independent said it has secured 307,000 (352,000 gross) contiguous net acres in the wet gas and oil windows, primarily in Reeves County, Tex. The average cost was stated as $1,300/acre. The company also said it has identified 2,000-3,000 future drilling locations in the oil-bearing Woodford and Barnett formations alone. Both formations are in the wet gas window and are expected to deliver a combination of rich gas and oil. The pretax, net present value range for these zones is $4-20 million/well at the benchmark oil and natural gas prices of $50/bbl and $3/Mcf.

OILFIELD SAFETY TRAILERS CAN BOOST YOUR EMERGENCY RESPONSE

  • UNCATEGORIZED

No matter how safety-conscious you are, accidents will happen in the oilfield. Strict compliance with regulatory standards is crucial. So are emergency response procedures and first-aid training.

It’s also important to have climate-controlled facilities on the job site to boost the success of your emergency response procedures. Consider the Vortex 811 Cool-Down Trailer from Forza Oilfield Services in West Texas. It provides the ideal working space for performing CPR, providing first-aid treatments, and quickly reducing body temperature in cases of heat exhaustion.

The Vortex 811 has a 20′ length and a capacity of up to 16 people. You’ll have plenty of space for treating injuries, specifically when more than one worker is involved. The Vortex 811 features a 48′ fan blade for greater cooling capacity and a 325-gallon water tank. Keeping an injured worker as cool and comfortable as possible is half the battle when administering first-aid procedures.

When chemicals are accidentally spilled or discharged, quick response is critical to avoid long-term injuries. Forza’s E-312 Emergency Shower and Eye Wash Trailer provides the perfect solution. It includes an ANSI Z358.1-2009-conforming shower that performs at 20 gallons per minute for 15 minutes with 30 PSI at tepid temperature.

FORZA COOL-DOWN TRAILERS PREVENT HEATSTROKE

  • UNCATEGORIZED

Working long shifts in the West Texas heat poses a serious health risk for oilfield workers. Chief among these are heat exhaustion and heatstroke. According to WebMD.com, heatstroke occurs when the body fails to regulate its own temperature and body temperature continues to rise, often to 104° F (40° C) or higher. Signs of rapidly progressing heatstroke include:

  • Unconsciousness for longer than a few seconds
  • Convulsion (seizure)
  • Signs of moderate to severe difficulty breathing
  • Confusion, severe restlessness, or anxiety Fast heart rate
  • Sweating that may be heavy or may have stopped
  • Skin that may be red, hot, and dry, even in the armpits
  • Severe vomiting and diarrhea

Heatstroke is a medical emergency. Even with immediate treatment, it can be life-threatening or result in serious, long-term complications. After calling 911 or other emergency medical services, WebMD recommends following these first aid steps:

  • Move the person into a cool place, out of direct sunlight.
  • Remove the person’s unnecessary clothing, and place the person on his or her side to expose as much skin surface to the air as possible.
  • Cool the person’s entire body by sponging or spraying cool-not cold-water, and fan the person to lower the body temperature. Watch for signs of rapidly progressing heatstroke (below).
  • Apply ice packs camera to the groin, neck, and armpits, where large blood vessels lie close to the skin surface. Do not immerse the person in an ice bath.
  • Check the person’s rectal temperature and try to reduce it to 102°F (39°C) or lower as soon as possible. The longer the body is at a high temperature, the more serious the illness and the more likely it is that complications will develop. Temperatures taken by mouth or in the ear are not accurate in this emergency situation.
  • Do not give aspirin or acetaminophen to reduce a high body temperature that can occur with heatstroke. These medicines may cause problems because of the body’s response to heatstroke.
  • If the person is awake and alert enough to swallow, give the person fluids [32 fl oz (1 L) to 64 fl oz. (2 L) over 1 to 2 hours] for hydration. Most people with heatstroke have an altered level of consciousness and cannot safely be given fluids to drink. You may have to help. Make sure the person is sitting up enough so that he or she does not choke.

Forza Oilfield Services in West Texas provides the perfect solution for preventing — or treating – heatstroke with our Vortex 811 Cool-Down Trailer. The Vortex 811 features an evaporative air fan capable of reducing the ambient air temperature by as much as 30 degrees. The fan has a 48” blade for greater cooling capacity.

OILFIELD WORKERS BEAT THE HEAT WITH FORZA OILFIELD SERVICES TRAILERS

  • UNCATEGORIZED

Heat stress among workers is a major concern in the oil and gas industry. Heat-related injuries can cause:

  • Significant downtime for oilfield workers
  • Costly litigation
  • Workers compensation claims

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, thousands of workers become sick from occupational heat exposure every year – and some of them die. These injuries and deaths are preventable. That’s where Forza Oilfield Services in West Texas can help.

According to OSHA, the best way to prevent heat-related illness is to make the work environment cooler. OSHA suggests:

  • Air conditioning (such as air-conditioned crane or construction equipment cabs, air conditioning in break areas)
  • Increased general ventilation
  • Cooling fans

Several work practices can also protect against heat-related injuries, according to OSHA:

  • Employers should have an emergency plan in place that specifies what to do if a worker has signs of heat-related illness, and ensures that medical services are available if needed.
  • Employers should take steps that help workers become acclimatized (gradually build up exposure to heat), especially workers who are new to working in the heat or have been away from work for a week or more.
  • Gradually increase workloads and allow more frequent breaks during the first week of work.
  • Workers must have adequate potable (safe for drinking) water close to the work area, and should drink small amounts frequently.

Forza Oilfield Services’s Vortex 811 is a state-of-the-art cool down trailer that is designed with all of these safety controls in mind. The Vortex 811 is geared for maximum cooling with the ability to drop the temperature as much as 30 degrees for up to 16 people at a time. We also offer:

  • Emergency shower and eye wash trailers
  • Portable restrooms
  • Living quarters
