1. 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…

  2. 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…

The client needed detailed, expert information management to keep its dynamic operations on schedule, confirm pre-operation requirements were…

  7. Flowback Spill Geologic Investigation

    Flowback (produced water) was impacting an active natural gas well pad.

RETTEW’s geologists, experienced in site characterization and remediation, provided firsthand knowledge of the locale and relevant regulations….

  8. Landslide Mitigation

    In the mountainous regions of West Virginia, the development of natural gas infrastructure requires construction of well pads in steep slopes with significant cuts and fills. Landslides are common at newly-built well pads without strict construction oversight and customized design. RETTEW investigated two existing landslides and provided recommendations and design for well pad repair. We…
