Geotechnical Exploration and Slope Stability Analysis O&G Well Pad Sites

Appalachian Basin

Hull has completed subsurface geotechnical explorations and detailed engineering analyses for over 200 well pads for various large O&G producers in Ohio.

Our observational and analytical data supplements successful Ohio Department of Natural Resources permit applications and aids in optimizing construction methods and site-specific recommendations.  Current regional O&G plays spatially coincide with areas that are highly susceptible to landslides and other geological hazards due to rugged topography, challenging geology, and high levels of earth disturbance.  Geological hazards pose a great risk to facility operations due to lost productivity, regulatory, or compromised safety.  Consequently, the role of slope stability and the importance of data quality is greatly amplified.

Our staff possesses extensive experience, both professionally and academically, with designing and problem-solving in this geologic setting.  Furthermore, Hull possesses an excellent track record of successfully completed pads that continue to be structurally stable and productive over time.
