DIESEL FUEL RELEASE RAPID RESPONSE | Marcellus Gas Well Pad | Southwestern Pennsylvania
Hull provided emergency services in response to a diesel fuel release that occurred during drilling operations for the construction of a gas well in the Marcellus Shale.  We oversaw soil excavation and removal activities; interacted with representatives from the drilling company, gas producer, and insurance company; worked with the insurance company to define objective screening levels for the soil impacted with diesel fuel; and initiated correlation of field screening measurement with laboratory analytical data.    Hull additionally worked with drilling company's EH&S personnel to assess the lateral and vertical extent of the diesel release and participated in discussions with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection's Bureau of Oil and Gas Management to help determine the best remedial approach.
