Mustang Oilfield Services owners get


creative with their business model, hauling
both water and equipment to customers in
the Marcellus and Utica Shale plays

When Greg Cook and his wife, Megan, founded Mustang Oilfield Services in August
2013, it was a homecoming of sorts for Greg, who grew up in St. Clairsville, Ohio a
small town with a population just over 5,000.
Located at the core of the shale oil and gas industry, Mustang Oilfield Services is
a logistics supply business that supports companies drilling shale oil and gas wells in
Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio, generally within a 100-mile radius of its terminal.

GOMC

An array of water-related amenities


is offered to these customers, including
water acquisitions, freshwater and residual
waste hauling, and water transfer services.
The freshwater, which is obtained from
various sources such as lakes, rivers,
municipal supplies and groundwater, is
delivered primarily to active frac sites but
also during the drilling phase as well.
Water reuse is gaining momentum
in the area, CEO and owner Greg notes.
In the past, these companies were paying
to haul water away and paying to haul
different water back in. Now theyre just

transferring from one site to another. It reduces truck traffic and reduces
the amount of freshwater thats needed, which ultimately saves on costs and
allows these companies to be better environmental stewards.
Typically, Mustang Oilfield Services is not the only vendor hauling water
at any given site. Its 10 or 15 trucks often work in tandem with another 20
to 100 additional vehicles, depending on the specifics of the project at hand.
They generally haul about 5 to 7 million gallons per well depending on how
the operator has decided to handle the job. Each of their trucks can carry on
average 4,500 to 5,000 gallons, so it amounts to plenty of loads and plenty
of travel.
What theyre seeing a lot of right now, Greg explains, are multi-pad
setups with anywhere from six to 10 wells on a pad. In these cases the water
totals are significantly higher, reaching levels of roughly 30 to 70 million
gallons in total.

RANGE OF SERVICES
The companys offerings dont stop at water, however. Mustang
Oilfield Services also offers flatbed trucking, hotshot services and winch
truck services hauling equipment, rig mats, containment fixtures, frac
tanks, pumps, drill rigs and super sacks of pellets and wood chips for other
companies that contract with them. This can take place at any stage of the
game, from the very early phases of pad construction through drilling, and
even up to completion of the well.
While most companies haul one or the other water or equipment
Greg says their business model is a bit unique by design. It stemmed from
the realization early on that there was a need to be varied in both customers
and equipment in order to level out some of the ups and downs of the water
truck business. The trucks might work hard for a while and then be down for
a week or two until the next job starts, and thats where they fill in work with

We have had much more growth this year as a company than we


did last year, and I think that is a testament to the team that
we have here, from our drivers up to our management.

the flatbeds. It seems to have worked out well for us, he adds.
While Mustang Oilfield Services mainly assists E&P
companies, the other oilfield service companies that need
assistance hauling their equipment make up a huge customer base
as well. Less frequently, the company also steps in to help those
who need water delivered so that another contractor can test the
pipelines, and occasionally theyre called in for hydroseeding and
soil stabilization, too.
GROWTH DESPITE DOWNTURN
Now into its third year of operation, Mustang Oilfield
Services is still a fledgling company that has had to deal with
the growing pains bound to accompany tremendous expansion
during a short period of time. What initially began as a staff of 12
and a fleet of four water trucks has blossomed into a staff of over
70 and 20 water trucks.
We have had much more growth this year as a company
than we did last year, and I think that is a testament to the team
that we have here, from our drivers up to our management,
Greg says, noting that its been a difficult year for the industry
as a whole. Although the downturn in crude oil prices hasnt
impacted the company to a large extent since the region doesnt
produce much of it, he explains, natural gas isnt doing a whole
lot better. In turn, the company has been careful to re-evaluate its
operations and make improvements whenever possible in order
to watch costs and run lean.
Results of this process include the addition of a supervisor
or manager in the field 24 hours a day, the opening of a satellite
location in Bentleyville, Pennsylvania, in order to provide better

service to customers in that region, and the inception


of their own in-house garage with four mechanics
and one shop technician, which now operates 24/7
and minimizes downtime.
Everybody has sort of bought in and
understood that this is going to be a tough year and
that everybody needs to do a little bit of everything,
Greg says. Well come out the other side stronger by
making it through this downturn right now.
Although this husband-and-wife duo are new
to the industry, they have plenty of team members
whove seen it all. This is not their first rodeo, says
Megan, director of marketing. This is not their first
downturn. Their comments are, We made it out of
the last one, and well make it out of this one. As long
as the company remains proactive and listens to what
customers need and want, she adds, Mustang Oilfield
Services will continue to be an asset and will continue
to work with its customers to accomplish projects.
PARTNERING WITH VENDORS
The companys fleet consists of 41 vehicles total,
including 20 water trucks (Mack, Volvo, Kenworth,
Peterbilt, and International); six tractors, five of

SOURCE OF PRIDE
As Mustang Oilfield Services began
replacing its older trucks with newer vehicles,
the decision was made to install larger tanks
on them as well. Their four newer, larger water
trucks all Internationals carry 130 barrels,
a significant step up from their 110-barrel
capacity. We actually got them used, which
was a big score for us,says Greg Cook, owner
and CEO.
The trucks are 40 feet long and have seven
axles. Theyre straight trucks, which allows
them to maneuver easier on the access roads
and on the well pads. This is important, Greg
explains, because well pads are built to the
smallest dimensions possible in order to keep
costs down. In fact, the companys drivers
travel to plenty of sites where tractor-trailer
water trucks arent even allowed. Thankfully,
the Internationals haul as much water as the
tractor-trailers, which is what makes them both
interesting and productive.
They are just really large, impressivelooking trucks, Greg says. Its a truck that
stands out in the crowd, and its a truck that
looks good, and its a truck that really makes me
proud to see our name on the side of the door.
They get talked about a lot on location and over
the CB by drivers with other companies.

an hour of downtime is an hour well never get back as revenue. So weve
had to find vendors we can partner with that run some of the same hours
that we do and stock the parts that we need so that when we do have a truck
go down, we can quickly get the part, quickly get it fixed and quickly get it
back on the road.
Because the company has a very diverse fleet when it comes to OEMs,
its not practical to stock their own parts, so they rely on trucking vendors

MICROBRANDING 101
Traditional branding is too pricey for many small businesses, but you
can make a name for yourself with this low-cost marketing technique
By David Frey

f youve ever taken a marketing class


or attended a marketing seminar, the
speakers always talk about branding.
They say: You have to have a brand; You
need to brand yourself; Branding is your
key to success.
But what they dont tell you is how
much it costs to actually create a recognizable brand. For small businesses, traditional branding is simply too expensive.
Experts say that it takes repeated exposure
to your brand over a long period of time

more research and find the names of the


decision-makers for those 250 law offices.
Or maybe your company rents
portable restrooms, and you determine
that your best target market is construction
contractors. You do the research, find the
top 50 construction companies in your
area, and get the names of their decisionmakers.
Now you have a targeted group of
people to which you can microbrand your
company and your product or service. So

For small businesses, traditional branding is simply too expensive.


Experts say that it takes repeated exposure to your brand over a
long period of time for someone to actually remember it.
What small business has the money to pay for that type of advertising?
for someone to actually remember it. What
small business has the money to pay for
that type of advertising? Very few. So traditional branding is out of the question for
most small businesses.
But that does not mean that you cant
brand your small company.
TRY MICROBRANDING
Id like to introduce you to a concept
that I call microbranding. Microbranding
is the art and science of branding your
business to a specific group of people so
you are always on the top of their mind. For
instance, lets say that you sell photocopy
machines. Youve determined that law
offices are your best target market. So you
do some research and find the top 250 law
offices in Houston, where you live. You do
18

GOMC

you devise a multi-step marketing program


to reach out and get in front of those 250
decision-makers. And you also devise a
plan to stay in touch after you reach out to
those 250 people in case they want to do
business with you.
Thats microbranding! Any small
business can microbrand itself.
THE 10-STEP PLAN
OK, so heres a sample of what Im
talking about. Using the law office example,
heres what I would do:
Step 1: Create a value proposition by
dollarizing the amount of savings that my
copier can achieve for a law office.
Step 2: Create a two-page special
report about my proposition and call it,
Why Youre Losing 23 Cents Right Now

for Every Copy You Produce in Your Law


Office (and How to Fix That Problem
Immediately).
Step 3: I would also create a few letters,
cards and online videos, and collect any
newspaper clippings, magazine articles and
positive news stories I could find about
my copier.
Step 4: My next step would be to
create an irresistible offer for a paper cost
reduction audit. Note: Now that I have my
value proposition, marketing materials and
my irresistible offer in place, its time to start
reaching out to the 250 decision-makers.
Step 5: I would start calling the decision-makers one by one, introduce myself, and ask them if I could send them a
special report.
Step 6: For those that I simply could
not get ahold of, I would email them to ask
if I could send them my special report.
Step 7: I would next send them cards
and letters offering my special report. Basically, I would do everything I could to
get the special report in their hands as a
first step.
Step 8: Once they have the special report, I would start following up with them
religiously by phone, email and direct mail
asking for an appointment to do a paper
cost reduction audit.
Step 9: After I have talked to them,
sent them the report and followed up with
them, I would put them on a monthly testimonial card campaign. A testimonial
card is a greeting card or postcard with the
photo of a loyal customer and a paragraph
about how they have benefited from your
product or service in their own words. The
card also gives your irresistible offer. (Always give your irresistible offer. Always!)
Step 10: Continue to follow up with
the decision-makers via email, phone and
cards. You never know when they will have
a change of heart or circumstances and
need your service. GOMC

LIFTING WITH

VACUUM

A pipe-lifting system from Vacuworx


is demonstrated at the ICUEE Show
in October. The unit can attach to any
excavator and is capable of lifting pipe from
6,600 to 44,000 pounds by use of a vacuum.
It can also rotate the pipe 360 degrees.

THE SAME AT THE OTHER END.
Some type of cables or straps and chains have been
the most common things contractors have used when
lifting pipes, says Randy Hayes, corporate sales director
for Vacuworx International. That was until the vacuum
lifting application became available.
Vacuworx, based in Tulsa, Oklahoma, manufactures
material handling equipment that uses a vacuum seal to
lift pipes of all sizes and materials, such as concrete, steel,
ductile iron, plastic, fiberglass and PVC.
The Vacuworx pipe handling systems have been

operations, fit concrete and cast iron pipe together in a ditch, and move heavy
construction materials into staging areas.
Weve seen a lot of people in the oil and gas industry now requiring
contractors to use vacuum lifting just because its so much safer and faster,
Hayes says. It requires less personnel. One guy can load, unload or string
pipe by himself without having to climb on pipes and
trucks and stand under the pipe.

It requires less personnel.

LIFTING EQUIPMENT
The vacuum lifting equipment from Vacuworx can
be attached to a wide range of equipment, including
excavators, backhoes, loaders, cranes, forklifts and
more. The company has six models on the market that
can lift objects in various dimensions weighing 6,600 to
44,000 pounds.
The most common equipment to attach it to is

any maintenance requirements for the engine. This has also allowed us to
reduce the overall weight of the vacuum lifter, Hayes says.
Vacuworx lifting systems feature a hydraulic
rotator that allows for 360 degree rotation and is fully
self-contained. Vacuum pads can be easily changed
in a matter of minutes to allow the end user to adapt
from one pipe size to another. The unit is operated
by wireless remote, but Vacuworx also provides an
emergency hardwired kit in case the wireless remote
becomes damaged or cannot be used for any reason.
The system pulls a vacuum between the pad
and the object to be lifted, providing a powerful,
positive seal, says Paula Bell, marketing manager.
The lifting system can operate in weather
conditions from snow to extreme heat. We have
proven the use of the technology in all conditions,
Bell says. Our vacuum lifters can even lift pipe
in unclean conditions and on somewhat uneven
surfaces.

Vacuum lifting technology doesnt damage


materials or bonded coatings and eliminates the
need for cribbing and spacers for pipe. Using the
lifting system can eliminate costly repairs that occur
when handling pipe by other methods such as straps
or chains.
CHANGES IN TECHNOLOGY
One of the biggest changes in the pipe lifting
technology has been the addition of wireless remote
operation.
The systems are operated by wireless remote
control from the cab of the host machine, Bell says.
Because it is operated from the cab, and because the
operator has such precise control over the movement
of the load, there is no need to have people on the
ground in harms way.
The company has also developed lifting tools
for plates, slabs, concrete barriers and horizontal
directional drill stems.

DOWN, BUT NOT OUT


Communities adjust to less oil spending, plan for future growth
By MaryBeth Matzek

hawn Kessel hears the same


story from businesses throughout
Dickinson, North Dakota
whether its a small coffee shop across
from the county courthouse or companies
directly involved in the oil industry low
oil prices have created a more challenging
economic environment.
Everyone is feeling it in their tills,
says Kessel, administrator for the City of
Dickinson. Overall, however, Dickinson
is fortunate since we have a diverse economy. I know several manufacturers looking to add workers. As the oil industry has
slowed down, were seeing others pick up.
These companies may not pay as much as
the oil ones, but they are still good wages.

As the oil industry has slowed down, were


seeing others pick up. These companies
may not pay as much as the oil ones,
but they are still good wages.
Shawn Kessel

Throughout the Bakken region, the


scene is played out again and again
lower oil prices mean the oil companies
are cutting back, sending shockwaves
through communities that have thrived in
recent years due to the fracking boom. The
number of oil rigs in North Dakota is at its
lowest number in six years, with the Department of Mineral Resources estimating
that every rig equals 40 direct jobs and 80
indirect jobs.
Although businesses and residents
who have lost their jobs due to oil industry layoffs are hurting, there isnt much
22

local communities and economic development organizations can do beyond lending a listening ear and utilizing programs
already in place to help with job creation.
Theres no doubt were feeling the
pain and would love to have some of those
(oil) jobs back, Kessel says. Our economy is down, but not as much as some
other areas.
In Williston, which has been named
the fastest-growing micropolitan area
in the nation for four years in a row, the
industry slowdown is giving leaders a
chance to take stock and plan for whats
next. In 2014, the citys population grew
by 8.7 percent.
We see ourselves going from boom
mode to business mode, says Shawn
Wenko, executive director for the Williston Economic Development Department.
This is giving us a chance to catch our
breath and get ready for future growth. The
industry will come back, and when it does
well be in a better position. Theres still a
lot of (oil industry) business being done.
That doesnt mean that businesses
havent felt the effects of less money coming in, Wenko says.
Theres definitely a ripple effect and
were seeing some slowness, but its not a
drastic slowdown as some people think,
he says. We have a lot of catch-up work to
get where we need to be when the industry
bounces back.
Williston is working with consultants
to build up its retail and restaurant base,
and those businesses are getting more
competitive with different offers to lure
in customers, but theyre still busy. Its
just natural market competitiveness,
says Wenko, adding the community has

programs in place to encourage business


development. We have a very pro-business
community where both new and existing
businesses can thrive.

Theres definitely a ripple


effect and were seeing some
slowness, but its not a
drastic slowdown as
some people think.
Shawn Wenko

Like Williston, Dickinson saw massive growth during the oil boom.
Before we had three or four coffee
shops, now we have 12. We went from
eight hotels to 17, Kessel says. Its not
necessarily just a decline in spending,
but also what once had to be divided four
ways, for example, now needs to be divided
12 ways.
Although Kessel says area businesses
are feeling the pain, theres not too much
local community leaders can do. He says
local officials have kept an eye on job numbers and watched how more and more jobs
were based on the oil industry.
If it gets too high, you get nervous
because if something like this happens,
the whole community is hurt, Kessel says.
Weve been fortunate to be more diverse.
That has helped us in the downturn.
Despite the less-than-positive news
from the oil sector, Wenko remains optimistic for Willistons future. Were still
growing and looking forward to settling
into a long-term growth pattern, he says.

BUILDING AN ALLIANCE
FOR THE INDUSTRY
Oilsands-producing companies form group to share resources
and find solutions to challenges in the industry
By Greg Bates

hen Reegan McCullough took


over as executive director of
the Oil Sands Community
Alliance (OSCA) in March 2014, the oil
industry was booming. He was kept busy
with projects to aid the communities and
companies entrenched in the Athabasca
oilsands in Alberta, Canada.
These days, McCullough and the
young organization are facing different
challenges during the industry slowdown.
However, OSCA, which was created in
summer 2013, is making strides in an effort
to be a positive industry difference-maker.

A couple years ago, the oilsands companies


got together and did a current state of what
kind of challenges there are and then looked
at a future state. The future state had a
lot to do with what they could
accomplish if they worked together.
Reegan McCullough

The idea is to help the producing


companies organize and look for ways
to work together to manage any sort of
socio-economic challenge arising from
development in the oilsands area,
McCullough says.
OSCA, which is a member-funded
organization, operates with about 25
area industry members whose work
encompasses a large area within Alberta.
The majority of the alliances work is done
in the regional municipality of Wood
Buffalo where Fort McMurray is located.
24

GOMC

www.gomcmag.com - FEBRUARY 2016

OSCAs boundary to the south stretches to


Lac La Biche County and to the west in the
Wabasca-Desmarais area.
JOINING TOGETHER
The alliance discovered that by
combining its efforts and expertise, the
group is better able to navigate uncertainty
and push for tangible solutions to the
complex challenges that have emerged
over time.
A couple years ago, the oilsands
companies got together and did a current
state of what kind of challenges there
are and then looked at a future state,
McCullough says. The future state had a
lot to do with what they could accomplish
if they worked together.
McCullough feels like in the two short
years OSCA has been in existence it has
made an impact.
I definitely think were making
progress, McCullough says. And theres
no question the speed at which the price
of oil plunged and the impact that its
had. It certainly requires that we be very
nimble and flexible in terms of refocusing
our priorities.
FOUR CORE AREAS
OSCA, which tries to be more
proactive than reactive, represents a
commitment to maximizing benefits
in the communities where they operate
through collaborative action in four core
areas: infrastructure, community wellbeing, aboriginal community relations,
and workforce.
Infrastructure includes all roads,
bridges, air drones, camps and what OSCA
dubs co-generations.

Reegan McCullough, executive director of the Oil


Sands Community Alliance (OSCA)

The scale and scope of these things


are quite extensive, McCullough says.
The amount of roads and bridges alone
would be in double digits of billions of
dollars in terms of future expansion, etc.
For community well-being, OSCA
focuses on what the communities need to
be able to attract and retain skilled workers,
their families and associated businesses.
So we look at things like, what are
the health services in the community, the
educational services, both K-12 as well as
post-secondary, McCullough says. We
would also look at what are the needs of the
municipality. Depending on the times over
the years when theres been rapid growth,
theres obviously more pressure on those
communities to develop the infrastructure
that they need.
Another core area OSCA deals
with is aboriginal community relations.
McCullough says each company has
an arrangement with aboriginal groups

and First Nations, and OSCA is helping bridge the gap between the
parties involved.
We focus on ways the companies can work together, and more
specifically how that relates to employment, business development, education
skills and training development, McCullough says. Of course, working with
the aboriginal communities, its very critical to us that they determine the
right direction, the right time. But we want to be there to work alongside and
support them to be as successful as they can be.
The final area of importance for OSCA is workforce. Since McCullough
has been the executive director of the organization, the price of oil has
changed dramatically thus the demand for skilled workers has tailed off.
We started some initiatives, but weve since put them on hold pending a
more favorable economic climate, McCullough says. At the same time, were
doing a lot of work with the municipalities and the province to help define
what the production levels are forecast to be, and from that what employment
requirements will be, whether it would be for construction, maintenance
or operations. From there, were forecasting what the population growth
will be.
BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS
McCullough says the most important area OSCA deals with is working
on relationships.
That comes through our engagement process, McCullough says. There
is no magic bullet. Any kind of relationship takes discussions early and often
and in a real and meaningful kind of way. That truly is a big part of what we do.
Within OSCA, there are a number of committees and subcommittees.
There are well over 200 representatives from member companies who are
experts in their given subject matter. The committees meet on a regular basis to
address the ever-changing industry.

We look at what the issues are, prioritize them and then look at ways
we can manage them, McCullough says. In most of those cases, it would
require some kind of a partnership arrangement.
PLAN FOR THE FUTURE
OSCA is constantly working on new projects. One major project it
was involved with in 2015 was twinning of road that leads up to the Fort
McMurray area, which was slated to be finished early this year.
Theres no question when it was still a two-lane road and major loads
were being moved up into that area, the safety on the road had its challenges.
And, of course, people would speak out, McCullough says. Now that
were close to finishing, people are pleased with that. But theres other road
structures that may not be quite to the same extent, but we want to bring
them to appropriate safety standards for the volumes of traffic.
Since the oil production slowdown, OSCA has had time to start looking
into what to do with some of the extra capacity there is in camps.
Another area OSCA is concentrating on relates to the growth forecast.
Annually, a report is released detailing projections on growth over the next
20 years. OSCA dissects that report and looks at the current transportation
networks to try and sort out where they can improve commuting distances
and issues related to that.
We have an opportunity now given the current market to take a bit of
a breather and a reset in terms of what are in fact the priorities today versus
what they were two years ago, McCullough says. Its amazing how much
has changed in that regard. Youve got to be flexible and nimble to be able to
change with the times.
OSCA has certainly shown its adaptability to best meet the needs of its
members. GOMC

TIME TO UNWIND
Country artist Jerrod Niemann ready to give WWETT Show attendees a night of music and fun
By Cory Dellenbach

t doesnt matter if youre a country music fan. Jerrod Niemann is going to


draw you in when he hits the Industry Appreciation Party stage Feb. 19.
You have to be aware of what youre around, says Niemann, country
music star and entertainer for the party. If youre doing your own show or
people are there just because of you its one thing. If you are part of a party that
has already existed for many years, we try to be a chameleon of sorts. Well do
our own songs, but well also throw in a couple different ones, too, from rock
and blues and everything.
No matter what he sings, Niemann promises a fun time for everyone at the
Indiana Convention Centers Sagamore Ballroom.
Theres just something to be said about being around people who are pretty
much just like you hardworking, small-town Americans, Niemann says. For
me, I love being out there and hanging out with everybody.

IN HIS BLOOD

Country music has always been in Niemanns blood, and he thanks his
mother for that: I was doomed from the beginning hearing country music
from the womb. My parents ran a bar when my mom was pregnant with me
and I think hearing all those country songs on the jukebox got me going.
From an early age, Niemann was influenced by country acts such as
Lefty Frizzell, Keith Whitley and George Strait. After graduating from high
school, he attended South Plains College in Levelland, Texas, pursuing an
Associate of Arts degree. He began his professional career by singing and
playing acoustic guitar in Texas clubs and bars.
I did that for about a year, just my guitar and me, he says. Then I
moved to Nashville and started working out there. Music is one of those

things where its such an amazing thing to be a part of that once youve been
bitten by the bug, there is no way out of it. Its just who you are.
In 2010, Niemann signed with record label Arista Nashville and released
his debut single, Lover, Lover. It became his first Top 40 single on the
country music charts, and in August 2010 it hit No. 1.
Since then, Niemann has released four albums Judge Jerrod & the
Hung Jury; Free the Music; Yellow Brick Road; and High Noon. In 2013, his
single Drink to That All Night hit No. 4 on the U.S. country charts and No.
1 on U.S. country airplay charts.
I got my foot in the door writing songs in Nashville, and its always fun
being able to write your own material, Niemann says. Every once in a while
you find a song you wish you had written.

NEW MUSIC

One of those songs is Blue Bandana, his newest single, released in


July. The song will be a part of his new album set for release later this year.
When I heard the song it just took me to so many cool places and
really took me to a lot of cool faces, too, Niemann says. The song tells
the story of a fan attending concerts wearing the same blue bandana and
the singer noticing it each time. Just traveling this country you see a lot

of people who are kind enough to pack up in their cars and do a road trip
spending their hard-earned money to see us. Ive never really done a song
that is a thank-you to those folks out there, but this song does that.
The new album will combine music hes done before a country/
rock mix and the more traditional country sound. Its a wide array of
music, Niemann says.
Hell perform some of the new songs from that album at the WWETT
Show and hopes everyone can relax and get their minds off work and
anything else going on in their lives.
The real world can be quite a hard place at times for people, and if
we can be the guys to get that off their minds for at least 90 minutes, then
weve done our jobs, Niemann says. I just always try to keep a thread of
laughter and craziness at our shows if we can. GOMC

THREE NIGHTS OF
WWETT SHOW FUN
BY LUKE LAGGIS
You come to Indy for the tools and equipment, the people and excitement.
Its the one time of the year when the whole industry comes together. So lets
have a party.
COLE Publishing celebrates the occasion every year with the Industry

It all starts Wednesday night. After the final bell rings on Education Day, you
can head over to Lucas Oil Stadium, connected to the Indiana Convention Center,
for a cold beverage and complimentary hors doeuvres while you network with
manufacturers and peers. The event will be held Feb. 17-18 from 5 to 8 p.m.
Exhibitors have been invited to co-host the event along with COLE Publishing,

peers.
We are very excited to see how creative the co-hosts decide to be, says
Brad Bisnette, the shows coordinator. All will be providing a good time for sure.
On Friday night, the focus will shift from Lucas Oil to the Sagamore Ballroom
in the Indiana Convention Center for the Industry Appreciation Party. Country
music star Jerrod Niemann will perform an up-close and personal concert for

HI-VAC IMPROVES A FAVORITE


Modifications to popular 7040 Series jetter make the unit more efficient
By Craig Mandli

innovations. While that means there are hundreds of
new products on the show floor, innovative companies often
use the show to display updated products as well. One of those
the OBrien 7040-SC diesel-powered hydrojetter from HiVac Corporation garnered plenty of attention last year.
The diesel-powered trailer jetter comes with platemounted 700-gallon-capacity polyethylene water tanks. A

from settling on the bottom of the tanks.

ASSISTANCE WITH PIPES


New Mexico contractors portable pipe handling machines boost
efficiency and reduce injury risks to employees on job sites
By Ken Wysocky

hen oilfield workers get hurt, their hands and fingers are most
at risk. In fact, hand and finger injuries accounted for nearly 38
percent of all recorded lost-time incidents in 2014, according to
the International Association of Drilling Contractors which explains one
of several reasons why Longhorn Tubular Services owns 10 pipe handling
machines manufactured by Pipehandler Oilfield Systems.
To a great degree, our machines minimize our rig employees exposure
to injuries while performing pipe handling operations, says Bruce Sharp,
who established Longhorn
Tubular in Hobbs, New
Mexico, in 2011. And
Because of these machines,
employees also dont have to do nearly because of these machines,

Longhorn
Tubular
started out as a provider of
pipe laydown and pickup services to customers in the Permian Basin in west
Texas and southeastern New Mexico. Over the years, the company expanded
and diversified; it now provides oilfield trucking services as well as tubular
goods and equipment rentals for well servicing and work-over operations,

PRODUCTIVITY AND EFFICIENCY


While safety was a big consideration, it wasnt the only reason Sharp
opted to invest in Pipehandler units. Productivity and efficiency also
influenced his decision, he notes. One thing I really liked about the units is
that theyre totally self-contained, Sharp explains. That allows you to move
it and set it up with one man, with no forklift or more employees required.
Sharp also cites the units ability to reach up to 20-foot-high rig floors,
which makes the machine more versatile. At the time, other similar
equipment wasnt functional at that height, he notes. Blowout preventers
and frac valve configurations can elevate rig floors pretty high, so we need to
be able to raise pipe that high.

<< OPPOSITE PAGE AND RIGHT: A portable pipe pickup and laydown machine
manufactured by Pipehandler Oilfield Systems and owned by Longhorn Tubular Services in
New Mexico sits on a job site. The machine can handle pipes up to 5 1/2 inches in diameter
and up to 2,500 pounds. (Photos courtesy of Longhorn Tubular Services)

Moreover, the Pipehandler machines can work from any side of a workover rig, which gives contractors like Longhorn Tubular more flexibility on
congested work sites. You can walk between the unit and the rig floor, he
says. It does not obstruct the side where youre working.
Sharp also cites the units elevated operator station, which provides the
operator with a clean line of sight while running the machine. On some
other companies machines, the operator is stationed away from the machine
or operates it remotely, and I personally dont like that, he says. In addition,
the machine eliminates the need for cable-type or bucket lifting devices,
which expose workers to a higher risk of injury.

If you keep the machines moving parts lubricated and


give it a little TLC, these machines are pretty dang reliable.
Bruce Sharp

For added flexibility, the Pipehandler unit can pick up pipe from racks,
whether theyre located on the right or left side of the conveyor table/boom.
The unit can handle pipe (most of them about 30 to 32 feet long) up to 5 1/2
inches in diameter and weighing up to 2,500 pounds, and works at rig floor
heights as low as 3 feet and as high as 20 feet. With frameworks constructed
out of structural tube steel, the unit weighs about 7 tons and measures
nearly 50 feet long. Sharp says his workers tow the unit, which features a
gooseneck hitch, with a 1-ton dually pickup truck. Setup or takedown time?
About 30 minutes.

weve found to be very reliable. If you keep the machines moving parts
lubricated and give it a little TLC, these machines are pretty dang reliable.
At roughly $190,000 per machine, plus the purchase of a truck to tow it,
the units represent a significant capital expenditure. But Sharp says theyve
proved to be worthwhile purchases. Theyre the reason our company exists,
he says. At the time we bought the first one, we only offered pickup and laydown services. You take a risk every time you invest money in equipment, but
this was a very good investment. GOMC

OPERATION OF THE MACHINE


A 54.9 hp, air-cooled diesel engine made by Deutz AG provides power
for the units hydraulic systems. Heres how the machine works: A conveyor
bed equipped with two metal arms tilts toward a pipe rack, and the arms lift
a joint of pipe off the rack. (The rack must be at least 36 inches high, and the
unit can lift pipe thats up to 60 inches above ground level.) Then the bed tilts
back to its regular position, cradling the joint of pipe. After that, hydraulicpowered pistons push the far end of the boom up to the rig floor height.
Then the operator activates a hydraulic glove located near the bottom
of the trough, which grips the bottom end of the pipe and pushes it up the
conveyor bed. When the far end of the pipe reaches the rig floor, rig personnel
latch it in an elevator, which lifts it up and into place. Total cycle time? About
one joint of pipe every 30 seconds, though Sharp says the machine sometimes
can load pipe even faster than that if the rig floor isnt very high.
RELIABILITY OF THE MACHINE
Sharp also cites the units reliability, noting that equipment downtime
is a profitability killer that can also kill chances for repeat business. Time is
money, he notes. Youre depending on all the pieces (on a job site) working
together and if one piece breaks down, everything else potentially has to wait
for it to be repaired, so dependability is pretty important.
The Pipehandler machines are pretty well engineered, he continues.
All the hydraulics are powered by an air-cooled Deutz diesel engine, which

Perkins says. When you trace it all back,

a competent person who has thoroughly
inspected the site, classified the soil, chosen
the correct type of protective system,
and trained all applicable employees in

should be no trenching accidents.

PRODUCTION OVER SAFETY


Perkins says schedule pressure is a
common cause of skipping steps that can
easily eliminate the danger.
A lot of it is production related: There
are only so many hours and minutes in a
day, Perkins says. They figure all the extra
work to do trench shielding or some kind
of protective system is just not necessary,
so they take a shortcut and it comes back
to haunt them.
The consequences can be serious,
obviously. Two companies were fined
$140,000 each last summer for the death of
a 22-year-old worker killed in a Manhattan
cave-in. Because they were aware of the
situation and failed to remove employees
even after being warned by safety officials
on the project, officials of both companies
were also indicted on manslaughter and
other charges. Two companies in Texas
were fined $70,000 and $18,000 in
September 2015 for violations even though
no accident occurred. In California, two
construction companies that ignored
OSHA stop-work orders in April 2015 were
fined more than $164,000 and $140,000
for sending workers back into unprotected
11-foot excavations. Safety has to be a line
item in the budget. It has to be accounted
for, says Perkins.
But its not just a financial or
production issue. The first ramification is
dealing with the families of the victims,
adds Perkins. What a company owner has
to go through dealing with an employees
family far exceeds any kind of an OSHA
penalty. GOMC

Product News

Product Spotlight
Continental ContiTech Hot Oiler hose
designed for abrasion resistance, flexibility
By Ed Wodalski

The Prospector Hot Oiler hose from Continental ContiTech is


designed to handle the high-pressure transfer of hot oil to specially
designed trucks on well drilling sites. The oil is used to clear paraffin
wax from inside the casings to help start the flow of fluid to the surface.
Due to the hose being laid across well sites, abrasion resistance and
oil resistance are critical attributes of this product, says David Brinkman,
market manager, hydraulics and oil/gas programs, Continental ContiTech.
There are high-temperature requirements, length requirements and
flexibility requirements that the hose must meet. Since vehicles are not
permitted within the fenced area, having 150-foot hose lengths gives you
the ability to make two of the standard 75-foot length assemblies and get
exactly the footage you need to make the assemblies as you need them.
The hose features a black, oil- and abrasion-resistant synthetic rubber
cover reinforced with two braids of high-tensile steel wire to withstand
harsh working conditions. Fittings used in this application are National
Pipe Thread (NPT) male American Petroleum Institute (API) and 1502
hammer union fittings. The hose has a temperature range of minus 40
degrees Fahrenheit to 275 F continuous and 300 F intermittently.

1.

It sounds very simple, but its a niche application that our sales
team was able to identify, Brinkman says. There were some gaps in
performance and length tolerances that we were able to capitalize on.
The hose has an inside diameter of 1 1/2 inches and maximum
outside diameter of 2 1/5 inches. Minimum burst is 8,750 psi. 800/2354632; www.contitech.us.
