Principle Energy Services launches Oilfield Noise Mitigation™ products and services in four locations
Tuesday, Oct 23, 2012
An upstream industry first, Principle Energy Services has launched its Oilfield Noise Mitigation™product and service line in the Barnett, Eagle Ford, Haynesville, Marcellus and Utica shale plays and the Permian Basin to help oil and gas operators minimize the costs, complaints and compliance issues associated with drilling, completion, production and compressor station noise.
“We’re grateful for the support we’ve had from the operators we serve and local communities in the two years it has taken to achieve this industry milestone.”
The three-tier approach to noise mitigation includes Sound Impact Assessments, Predictive Sound Modeling and noise suppression technology for wellsites and compressor enclosures. The process begins with a recorded survey of ambient noise to accurately map noise levels around a planned well location before operations begin. Proprietary modeling software, built on a library of oilfield equipment profiles, is then used to predict future noise levels. If sound levels are expected to reach a level of agitation at nearby private or public property, then certified barriers are rapidly and cost-effectively implemented to mitigate the noise and visual impact in problematic areas.
“Our Oilfield Noise Mitigation technology has been proven by large and small operators who have commissioned more than 1,000 sound studies and installed over 100,000 ft of sound barriers,” commented Larson Hampton, CEO, Principle Energy Services. “We’re grateful for the support we’ve had from the operators we serve and local communities in the two years it has taken to achieve this industry milestone.”
Sound engineers from Principle Energy Services identify potential noise problems and help evaluate cost-effective solutions before oil and gas activity begins in an area. The team offers acoustical consulting and engineering services to ensure a quiet neighborhood stays that way.
