Sunland Targets US Shale Plays – Sunday, July 1, 2012

More than two years ago, Sunland identified and targeted the growing activity in the U.S. unconventional shale plays as key areas for future Sunland growth. These areas include the Barnett, Haynesville, Eagle Ford, Marcellus, Bakken as well as the Utica shale plays. These shales are composed of natural gas, oil or a combination of the two hydrocarbons. Some industry groups project the U.S. unconventional shale plays hold 750 trillion cubic feet of recoverable gas and 23.9 billion barrels of recoverable oil.

BGI&E Develops A National Shale Footprint

For the last several years work in shale plays has been a major contributor to BGI&E’s revenue stream.

Since the establishment of the Tolar area office in 2005 BGI&E has maintained a group of employees providing service/maintenance, sup-port and construction personnel in the Barnett shale to public and private E&P and midstream companies.

In November 2010, BGI&E placed a large crew in the Eagle Ford shale play near Gonzales, TX to install hub facilities (liquid treating plants) for a midstream client. In the time since then they have expanded operations to include construction of gathering and separation facilities, terminals, rail heads and various other installations to support their drilling programs. Today BGI&E has nearly tripled its employees involved in these efforts. In April 2012 they were approached by a large upstream client to install similar facilities near Gonzales and additional employees were brought on board to facilitate their needs.
