Environmental Benefits:

The hole size reduction, use of air drilling, and closed loop system resulted in waste reduction of nearly 1.5 million pounds. Low toxicity additives allowed for the land application of the used drilling fluids and cuttings. Reduced hole size resulted in fewer environmental impacts, as did the use of air drillings. Building the location with the capability of containing all liquids reduces the potential for pollution.
