PRESS RELEASE

Case History: The HellBlenderTM

CETCO Introduces A Unique Solidification Package for Drill Cuttings Waste Disposal In the shale plays, drilling operations produce a significant waste stream of drill cuttings that must be treated and subsequently hauled to a landfill for disposal. The typical method for handling this waste stream is to mix the cuttings with lime and fly ash to tie up free liquids to meet landfill disposal criteria. The operator is effectively paying for large quantities of additional material, using a labor intensive method to facilitate the mixing to achieve the cuttings treatment, and then hauling this large volume of material to landfill for disposal. This results in significant costs to the operator as well as logistical challenges. Problem: An Operator in the Marcellus shale play needed a solution to reduce its total volume of drill cuttings waste and to reduce the costs associated with handling and disposing of the waste. The Operator had been mixing lime into its drill cuttings at a rate of 75% by volume. This conventional method significantly increased its waste stream volume and the associated costs for handling, trucking, and disposing of the waste stream. The Operator called upon CETCO Oilfield Services to deliver an improved system for its drill cuttings waste disposal. Solution: For over two decades CETCO has been working to develop innovative products and technologies for solids stabilization. Initially, this development effort targeted soil remediation and sludge stabilization at industrial sites, refineries, chemical processing plants, and for decommissioning nuclear sites. Drawing upon this experience, CETCO engineers recogRaw drill cuttings entering the Hellnized that this same BlenderTM process direct from the technology could be drilling operations. brought to the Operator to reduce its volume of drill cuttings waste. Compared to utilizing lime, fly ash, and other traditional solidification agents, the advanced chemistry employed by CETCO allows a large reduction in total waste volume. Due to the overall reduction in final volume of waste needing disposal, the Operator saves time and money on both logistics (handling & trucking waste) and disposal costs.

The HellBlenderTM Equipment Package Method: CETCO engineers and R&D scientists visited the Operator’s jobsite to study the drill cuttings and devise a treatment plan with its proprietary solids stabilization chemistries. Based on the information, CETCO deployed a HellBlender™ process equipment package. The system was set up and operated on-site by CETCO technicians over a 3-well drilling program. The HellBlender™ unit was placed adjacent to the drilling rig and received cuttings directly from the rig’s operation for processing. The treated cuttings were then fed into receptacles for hauling directly to a landfill where they met all criteria for landfill disposal. Continued e

PRESS RELEASE Outcome: CETCO Oilfield Services successfully treated all cuttings received during the drilling program, and all material removed for disposal met landfill criteria. More importantly, CETCO’s solidification process significantly reduced the total amount of waste compared to the old method of treatment. CETCO’s treatment process only required dosage rates ranging from 1.2 – 1.5% by weight, reducing the total amount of waste from the previous method by 42%. The chart to the right details the actual waste reductions achieved by CETCO. The CETCO HellBlender TM process reduced truck traffic in and out of the site by an estimated 170 trucks for this three well drilling program. In addition to an overall cost savings, the Operator did not have to manage quality control of a waste mixing operation.

JOB SAFETY

Snakes, Ticks and Bees, Oh My! Be Careful, That Bite Could Kill You! With Oil and Gas companies expanding their reach in the Marcellus and Utica Shale plays, workers are finding themselves in more and more remote locations throughout Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia. It is important for HS&E professionals and workers alike to recognize that as we break new ground in different areas, there is a natural population of wildlife that will need to be recognized and avoided. This article will outline the safety issues that arise when coming in contact with venomous snakes, spiders, ticks and bees in the field, as well as the concerns surrounding what types of bug repellants can be used while onsite.

snakes might be in the area where you are working is the best way to avoid contact, but there are several products available to protect yourself if accidental contact is made with these animals. Snake bite kits can be used to treat wounds if immediate medical attention is not available. If you are bitten, immediate medical attention is required, but remote locations might need to have an initial treatment option on hand in the event of an emergency. Other products include snake protection gaiters, chaps and pants. These products act as a shield to protect the legs from snake bites, which is where most snake-related injuries are found.

SNAKES There are 3 types of venomous snake species indigenous to Pennsylvania and Ohio, while West Virginia only has two venomous species. All three states are known to have Northern Copperhead and Timber Rattlesnakes, and Pennsylvania and Ohio have a third venomous snake called the Eastern Massasauga. All three of these venomous snakes are members of the pit viper family, are usually non-aggressive and like to avoid human contact whenever possible. If you come across one of these snakes, it is important that you never try to handle or catch them, if left undisturbed they will either remain still until the person is gone or move away on their own. You can immediately tell if a snake is venomous by the rectangular shaped head and slit-like pupils, and a table describing the venomous snakes in our area is included in this article.

BEES Bee stings have been an occupational hazard for people working outdoors for centuries and workers in the Utica and Marcellus are no different. The best way to protect from being stung by a single bee or attacked by an entire swarm is to avoid nests whenever possible. If you do accidently come across a nest and it has not been disturbed, slowly and quietly move in the opposite direction. If you have disturbed the nest and a swarm develops, it is important to remain as calm as possible. Swatting or running seems to aggravate stinging insects, and killing certain types of bees will only bring more to the attack. Try to shield your face with your

Other than risking a serious bite, another reason to avoid contact with these snakes is that they could be endangered in your area and it might be against the law to handle them. The Northern Copperhead is not endangered, the Eastern Massasauga is considered endangered in Pennsylvania and Ohio and the Timber Rattlesnake is considered “threatened” in Ohio and is a “candidate species” in Pennsylvania and West Virginia. A “threatened” species is on the brink of becoming endangered, and a “candidate” species is on the brink of becoming threatened. As a result of these classifications, it is against the law to harm or kill these snake species. Paying attention to your surroundings and being aware of what types of

JOB SAFETY arms and slowly move out of the danger zone, or lie down on the ground and remain still. Once the bees feel as though they are no longer under attack, they will move on. Many people think that getting to a source of water and jumping in will end the attack, but it is important to note that Africanized honey bees have been known to wait for their prey to surface and continue to attack. Avoiding perfumed toiletries like hairspray and scented sunscreen, as well as suede or leather will help reduce risk, as bees are attracted to these types of odors.

stinger is removed, apply ice or a cold compress for comfort, and a histamine blocker like Benadryl will help to reduce swelling. If a severe allergic reaction occurs, the affected worker must be transported to a medical facility as soon as possible. Although rare, bee stings can be fatal to people who are severely allergic. If you have a known bee allergy and work in the field, be sure to notify your supervisor of the allergy and always be prepared by carrying an epinephrine auto-injector, commonly referred to as an EpiPen.

If you are stung by a bee, or several bees, the first step is to make sure that the stinger is removed from the skin. After a bee sting, the stinger remains in the skin and can continue to inject venom into the victim. Once the

SPIDERS There are two types of venomous spider that can be found in Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia. All three states are known to have Northern Black Widow and Southern Black Widow spiders. These widow spiders are very similar, but the difference can be seen in the markings. Both species are jet black in color, and have a bright red hourglass marking on the underside of the abdomen. All widow spiders will also have red or white spots running down the middle of their backs, as well as white stripes that can run diagonally down the sides of the abdomen. The difference between a Northern and Southern Black Widow can be seen in the hourglass marking on the abdomen. The Northern Black Widow’s bright red hourglass marking usually appears incomplete, with the bottom half and top half separated. The Southern Black Widow will have the same hourglass marking, but it is usually complete and has more rounded corners. Northern and Southern Black widow spiders are usually non aggressive, and will only attack if they feel threatened. It is also important to note that only the females of the species are venomous, males are considered largely harmless. If bitten by either type of Black Widow, the CDC recommends cleaning the bite area, wrapping a tight bandage around the bite to slow the venom’s spread and seeking immediate medical attention. If possible, keep the site of the bite elevated to reduce swelling. Although Black Widow bites are usually not life threatening, a doctor may want to treat some bites with some form of anti-venom.

JOB SAFETY TICKS One of the biggest problem insects to look out for while in the field is another member of the arachnid family, the tick. There are several hundred types of tick species known worldwide, with over 25 species located in Pennsylvania. Ticks are not venomous, but carry and transmit several types of bacteria and diseases which can lead to long term health problems or even death if not properly treated. Diseases transmitted by ticks include, but are not limited to, Erlichiosis, Tularemia, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Tick Paralysis and Lyme disease. Information on these diseases and their symptoms can be found by visiting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website at www.cdc.gov. According to the CDC website, the best way to prevent Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases is to wear light colored clothing, tuck pant legs into socks, check the body throughout the day for the presence of ticks, to use tick repellants and to take a hot shower as soon after work as possible.

The symptoms could be a result of Lyme diSease or Rocky Mountain spotted fever.

PRESS RELEASE

Enviro-Guard Introduces: Polyurea Spray-In-Liner The polyurea spray-in-liner is an excellent puncture resistant and chemical resistant solution for your secondary containment needs. Polyurea is some of the most chemical resistant lining systems available today. With the ability to conform to any shape, with no size limitations and it adheres to many different types of surfaces this is the perfect product for your secondary containment solution. A 40 mill thick polyurea liner will have 5 times the puncture resistance of a 40 mill poly ethylene liner. How many times have holes in your liners cost you thousands of dollars and many man hours to clean up your spill? With polyurea liners you can rest assured that the common liner puncture will not occur. There is no need to place expensive gravel inside your containment structure with a polyurea lining system. Polyurea liners when sprayed a minimum of 40 mills will weigh enough to hold it down in high wind situations. We have many different color options, and if you have a color code or paint chip of your desired color we can match it. There is no down time for your operation either, our poly liners set up in 30 seconds and can be immediately put back into service saving you many hours of down time on typical “one-part” spray lining systems which take up to 12 days to full cure.

Benefits of polyurea spray-in-liner: • No VOC’s and Little to No Odor • Some Systems are USDA and Potable Approved • Weather Tolerant: Cures at -25ºF to >300ºF even in High Humidity • Excellent Resistance to Thermal Shock • Flexible: Bridges Cracks • Waterproof, Seamless and Resilient • Unlimited Mil Thickness in One Application • Spray, Hand Mix and Caulk Grade Materials • Excellent Bond Strengths to Properly Prepared Substrates • Resistant to Various Solvents, Caustics and Mild Acids • Low Permeability, Excellent Sustainability
