Great Lakes Wellhead, Inc. (GLW) is a contractor serving the oil and gas industry with exploration and production (E&P), wellhead maintenance, gas storage, and wellhead disposal services. Around half of its business focuses on the gas and storage sector, while the other half caters to E&P projects. To aid in its highly regulated and potentially dangerous work in environmental compliance, Great Lakes Wellhead adopted Fulcrum data collection software in 2020.
The US Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration enacted new safety standards for underground natural gas storage facilities, leading to an extensive inspection requirement of around 17,000 wells across the United States. GLW’s adoption of Fulcrum data collection software has proved essential in fulfilling its clients’ additional environmental compliance inspection needs promptly, preventing potential penalties.
Fulcrum’s efficiency in visual inspections significantly reduced the time and effort required. It allowed GLW to swiftly conduct inspections, yielding uniformly accurate results and irrefutable location data to prove environmental compliance. In addition, Fulcrum data collection software also empowers GLW’s clients by providing them with valuable data and making them subject matter experts on their assets. This enables them to assess risks accurately and make informed decisions.
Despite the environmental compliance challenges posed by legacy wellheads and changing landscapes, Fulcrum’s automatic location data capture ensures precise geospatial information is available, independent of surface landmarks. Moreover, Fulcrum’s flexibility allows GLW to perform multiple inspections during a single site visit, optimizing resources and further reducing costs.
Looking ahead, GLW anticipates more stringent government regulations, emphasizing the importance of adopting technology like Fulcrum to stay ahead of environmental compliance requirements.
As environmental standards continue to evolve, innovative solutions like Fulcrum will play a pivotal role in the oil and gas industry’s successful navigation of increasingly complex regulatory landscapes.
