1. Comprehensive Well Pad Design

    RETTEW facilitated the design, permitting, and construction of a horizontal well pad for an oil and gas client. The project posed a series of complex challenges that our team navigated to ensure compliance with regulations set forth by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources under Chapter 1501:9 of the Ohio Administrative Code. Throughout the project,…

  2. Belmont County Road Maintenance and Route Improvements

    A client’s haul route utilized Lee Road, a narrow rural corridor in poor condition containing areas only wide enough for a single vehicle to pass. In its existing condition, the road would not support the client’s truck traffic. Additionally, the intersection to access this roadway was narrow and utility poles close to the roadway made…

  3. Jefferson County Road Maintenance and Route Upgrades

    A client’s haul route ran along Fernwood Road, which provides access to the Jefferson County Airport from the south. The airport access was restricted because of a tight turning radius and several sections of deteriorating roadway. Additionally, water was pooling in the existing intersection, which needed to be addressed for public safety. Our client was…

  4. Railroad Waterline Bridge Span Supports

    A confidential oil and gas company needed to safely span three railroad bridges with a temporary waterline needed for fracking operations. Safety and stability were critically important in the unique fabrication of new bridge span supports. RETTEW worked closely with railroad representatives to increase their confidence in the approach and gain approval for installing the…

  5. Salt Water Injection Well Facility Site Characterization and Remediation

    Our client, planning to sell their property, received a compliance notice from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) requiring remedial actions. Historically, the site was contaminated by chloride, petroleum hydrocarbons, and technologically enhanced naturally occurring radioactive material (TENORM). Impacted soils, building materials, and equipment required demolition and excavation to restore the site for regulatory…

  6. Pad Work

    Our exploration and production client came to RETTEW with critical needs for dedicated, professional field staff to manage their northern Marcellus operations. The client needed efficient supervision and help with traffic management to keep their production on schedule while maximizing space and processes. RETTEW maintained 24/7 site operations at this location for over a year,…

  7. San Juan Basin Phase I Environmental Site Assessment

    A confidential oil and gas exploration and production client planned to acquire a large asset in the Rocky Mountain region including oil and gas wells, tank batteries, associated gathering lines, and a 200-acre storage yard throughout an area spanning three counties, the Navajo Nation, and Bureau of Land Management property. As part of the due…

  8. Seismic Survey

    As a precursor to identify natural gas resources, state and federal agencies required a natural gas client to obtain environmental and cultural resource clearances prior to conducting seismic surveys. The client was unfamiliar with the complexities, coordination effort, and details involved with the clearance process, and hired RETTEW for guidance and project execution. RETTEW completed…

  9. Oil and Natural Gas Feasibility Study

    The Jicarilla Apache Indian Reservation covers 850,000 acres in northcentral New Mexico. The Jicarilla Apache Nation (Nation), one of the single largest mineral owners in the San Juan Basin, wanted to better understand the types of environmental and hydrocarbon resources present in the northeast sector of their reservation. This environmentally sensitive area includes approximately 200,000…

  10. Freshwater Impoundment Design

    Facing an aggressive schedule as well as volume constraints and permitting restrictions, this natural gas client needed a smart design for this freshwater impoundment. Having previously designed the adjacent well pad site, RETTEW coordinated with the client’s water professionals at that site for planning and scheduling efforts at the impoundment. This integrated approach allowed us…
