ShalePro Takes Operations Work to Texas
Taking the success of similar work they’ve done across Appalachia, ShalePro is currently performing compressor operations in Fort Stockton, TX, in the heart of the Permian Basin. The team from West Virginia is providing operations for a mobile compressor unit that is being used during the fracking process.
“The mobile unit we’re operating is providing more than 70% of the power on the frack,” says Jay Sears, Manager of ShalePro’s Compressor Operations.
ShalePro started providing operations for mobile compressor units in 2015 on production sites across the Marcellus shale play, moving from frack to frack across the region as the unit moved.
“We really proved ourselves to be a safe a reliable contractor across West Virginia and Ohio,” says Sears. “We’ve formed a great working relationship with our clients and were happy to be able to work with them outside of our normal region.”
ShalePro currently has a team of three that has been in the west Texas region since late September and will continue to stay through the first few month of 2019. They will be sending another crew to the area as well in the coming weeks, and Sears say he doesn’t see the work ending any time soon.
“I don’t see Texas being our last trip out of region,” he said. “We will most likely continue to travel with this units across the country wherever they happen to be going.”
