Oil and Gas Safety: Topics of Discussion for Oilfield Operators

In the oilfield, many of your duties are performed alone. Therefore, it is vital to follow the proper oil & gas safety procedures put in place by the state and federal governments, as well as the specific methods required by the company you work for. In order to maintain the best personal safety you can while on duty, you should always keep these five important topics in mind.

Common Sense and Good Judgement is Key in Oilfield Safety

Working independently is vastly different than working in a group. You have to think ahead, and use both good judgment and common sense. As a lease pumper, you need to know what problems you can and cannot address on your own; as well as what risks you should or should not take. While threatening situations can occur, lease pumpers should never take any dangerous risks unless it is to avoid serious injury or death. Remember saving time is never worth your personal safety.

When you’re used to working alone, common sense well alert you to plan ahead. This small tactic can not only save you time; but it can also be the difference between something serious happening, or a quick and easy repair.  This is especially true if you want to be successful as a lease pumper. There are a wide variety of situations that can occur every day, and you need to prepare for different contingencies to help soften the blow. For instance, ‘What do you do if you experience problems in a remote area of the lease?’, ‘Do you keep your spare tire’s air checked?’, or ‘Do you have all the proper first-aid supplies on hand?’ These are the kind of things that will help you to avoid potentially dangerous situations later on down the road.

Lease  pumpers spend a lot of time driving to locations across the lease; so it’s not a matter of if you will get a flat tire, so much as when. To prepare for this common issue, lease pumpers should make it a regular habit to check their spare tire. Other common safety practices can include:

  • having two batteries mounted under the hood for jump starting lease engines,
  • walking around something, rather than under it,
  • having a small compressor (that can run off your car battery) to pump low or flat tires,
  • have a spare set of vehicle keys (for in case you lock your keys inside the vehicle),
  • and more.

Every oil worker should carry a portable phone or radio. Communication is key to working alone; and if a problem occurs, you have to be able to contact the necessary help. Always have contingencies set for any situation. For instance, knowing the location of the nearest public phone or house can be invaluable in the event your phone or radio loses power, becomes damaged, or you need emergency assistance in any way.

 

Oil & Gas Safety Topic 1: Avoid Taking Unnecessary Risks

Taking unnecessary chances or risks is the leading cause for lease pumpers to develop issues while working alone. For instance, if a leak is found at a coupling where it is only allowing a small amount of gas to escape; a quick fix would be to mount a collar leak clamp, which generally would take a lease pumper less than 15 minutes to complete. However, not all instances come complication-free. Circumstances can (and do) arise that will delay your process. This could include: trouble finding a suitable clamp or tool, a wrench drop causing sparks to ignite the gas, or a wide range of other options. Due to this, you should always shut in wells, and/or bleed the pressure off the line(s) before attempting any installations or repairs. Many major accidents where oil workers have died were the result of what initially started as small leaks or repairs. In most of these situations, the leaks or repairs were viewed as too small to pose any significant risks; thus chances were taken, and this carelessness ultimately resulted in the death of the field worker.

Every accident that occurs is made up of bad decisions and unfortunate circumstances. No one was around to perform first-aid, if only the wind had been blowing that day, or if the gas hadn’t of accumulated; every situation is different, and a million and one things can change the outcome. While a lease pumper doesn’t need to constantly fear death to do their job, they do need to evaluate every action they can (or cannot) make, and determine how it impacts the potential outcome. If an action appears risky, the worker should always weigh their other options, and/or obtain the required help to reduce the risks to safer levels.

 

Topic 2 for Oil and Gas Safety: Keep Safety an Essential Part of the Job

A common view about safety is that it is like a winter coat. Once the weather is cold, a person will put it on; but when it gets warmer, they feel less inclined to use it. This is similar to work. When a dangerous situation comes along on during your duties, people become more concerned about personal safety. However, just because the crisis is averted, doesn’t mean safety concerns should disappear. A safe attitude should carry over into everything we do; whether you’re working, fishing, or driving home for the night.

The way a lease pumper drives is often a good reflection on their attitude towards work safety. For example, speed limits are set as a safety precaution for motorists concerning how fast it is safe for a driver to go on a given road in good conditions (dry roads, fair weather, normal traffic, etc.). During the optimum weather conditions, many drivers will feel going a few miles over the speed limit isn’t a big deal; and in most cases, this is true as long as the road maintains ideal conditions. Unfortunately, these ideal situations can cause a person’s attention to wonder, such as a lease pumper thinking about all the tasks they have ahead of them for the day, making the driver no longer as alert as he was before. A light scatter rainstorm can create wet pavement in an area up ahead, an oncoming care-without warning, or a blown tire; there are hundreds of possibilities that can occur in the blink of an eye. However, by this point it no longer matters what happened or why; it is about the crash or injury.

Every year people are severely injured over situations that could have easily been avoided. Things like driving while reading a newspaper, talking on the phone, or other circumstances that became more important than the person’s personal safety. To be a successful lease pumper, you need to make the aspect of safety as essential to your job as when you are driving a car.

 

Oilfield Safety Topic of Discussion 3: Know the Correct Industry Colors, Markers, Notices, and Warnings

Just like our roadways have a variety of signs with different shapes, colors and meanings; the oil industry has their own standards of information used for providing information. Over the years, the appearance and meaning of the sign have been refined and standardized until every color, shape, and size used could indicate something from a distance (even before the person can read the exact lettering). Typically these signs offer information about a potential danger, equipment or supply information, location of first-aid or fire extinguishers, or other safety related information; with most lease sites marked with general signage used uniquely to the oil industry.

Both signs for warnings and notices provide useful information for the lease pumper and anyone else who visits the lease site; and are categorized into six major areas: Caution, Danger, Notice, Radiation, Safety, and Warning. Although there are specific color combinations used for each of the different sign categories, some standard sign information is also used, such as the white background with the words “KEEP OUT” in black lettering.  Other common identifiers include:

CAUTION
Caution signs are typically installed where danger is not always present or is not likely to lead to a serious injury or death.The coloring is typically white or black lettering on a yellow background. These types of signs can include:

  • Low Head Room
  • Wide Turning Trucks
  • Step Down

DANGER
Danger signs usually have white lettering on a red background, with the information area having a white background with black lettering. These signs indicate a serious condition or situation that can result in serious injury or even death.This can include:

  • Flammable
  • Hard Hat Area
  • High Pressure Gas Line
  • High Voltage
  • No Smoking

NOTICE
Notices typically have a blue background with white lettering in the header, with a white information background with black lettering. These notices typically provide advisory information such as:

  • Authorized Personnel Only
  • Keep Doors Closed
  • Tornado Shelter

RADIATION
The heading for a radiation sign is typically based on the present warning. Headers could read: Radiation, Danger, or Warning. Common conditions described for the industry include:

  • Radiation Hazard
  • Radioactive Waste
  • X-Ray Equipment in Use

SAFETY
Safety signs typically have a header with a green background and white lettering, with the information area having black on white. These signs generally remind workers to practice good safety practices, such as:

  • Keep This Area Clean
  • Safety Begins with You
  • Wash Your Hands

WARNING
Warning signs are typically on an orange background in both the header and information areas, and use black lettering. These signs indicate a situation that could lead to a permanent injury, but in most cases, not death. Examples could include:

  • Do Not Use Two-Way Radios
  • Eye Protection Required
  • Hard Hat Area

Although the majority of safety signs have been standardized over the years, lease pumpers are likely to see variations of the different areas described. For example, certain headers may have in color.  Ultimately the risk presented determines the look of the sign, and some signs have been known to have the same information, only different headers. It doesn’t matter where you are on the lease; at some point, you will come into contact with industry signs. Common options found at the tank battery or well site can include:

  • Air Pack Required
  • Authorized Personnel Only
  • Do Not Enter
  • Equipment Starts Automatically
  • H2S Poisonous Gas
  • Hard Hat Required
  • High Voltage
  • No Smoking

Oilfield Safety Meeting Topic 4: Wear the Proper Gear

When working on a lease, there are dangers all around you. Generally most companies will provide you (and any other employee or visitor) with the required safety equipment needed on site. The necessary gear can vary depending upon the specific safety equipment requirement guidelines set by the state and/or federal regulations. Some of the more essential equipment used, include:

  • Breathing Device

There are several different types of breathing apparatuses in field use. Generally, most lease pumpers carry their own personal air mask while working on the job. Some lease stores are known to stock additional air packs on the lease for personnel or visitors.

  • Eye Wash Station

Eye wash stations are available around the lease in areas where there are high risks for eye injuries from chemicals or small particles. Workers should be aware of the different risks for eye injuries, as severe damage can occur in only a few short seconds. For instance, when gauging a tank and the lease pumper gets his or her eyes exposed to the hot gases rushing up out of the tank; a common reaction is to turn away into the cooler air. However, this will only close the pores and trap the gas inside your eyes; causing a painful eye experience for the next 24 hours or until the gas has the chance to escape or diffuse into the body. Along with knowing where the eye wash stations are located, lease pumpers should also keep an eye wash solution and lubricant within their first-aid kit.oil gas safety

Figure 2. Example of an Eye Wash Station

  • Goggles

Goggles are highly recommending when gauging hydrogen sulfide-producing atmospheric vessels or when a vapor recovery unit has several ounces of pressure inside it; and are mandatory during any situation where you may experience flying projectiles.

  • Hearing Protection

Earmuffs are mandatory for workers in situations where they may experience loud noises. Long-term exposure to these noises can cause damage to your hearing, or even interfere with your sense of balance.

  • Spark-Proof Tools

These specialized tools are used to reduce the risk of creating sparks that could ignite a fire in an explosive atmosphere. They are typically very expensive and made out of some form of brass. Most lease pumpers do not carry many spark-proof tools, and commonly only have a hammer and a small adjustable wrench on hand.

The exact types of safety equipment used should be determined by what type of equipment will make the job safer. For example, some lease pumpers utilize back protection belts for those who are required to do a great deal of lifting; while others only use the appropriate safety equipment for their current work situations. However, typically the company you work for will provide you will all the safety equipment needs believed necessary for their lease pumpers.

11 Important Oil & Gas Lease Operating Maintenance Expenses (that should never go overlooked…)

From the lease owner to regulatory agencies, when you work as a lease pumper there are plenty of relationships you will have to maintain. However, one often overlooked association is between the lease pumper and the owner of the land. To help preserve a healthy alliance with the land owner, it is essential to follow good lease maintenance protocols. While this can cover a wide array of duties, always ensure to keep up with these 11 important areas of oil & gas lease operating maintenance!

Lease Maintenance

 

Oil & Gas Lease Expense Maintenance #1: Cattle Guards and Gates

A lease pumper requires daily access to the site as soon as a producing well has been established onsite. This often involves the use of fences and gates as vehicles will be required to pass through to get to the equipment and well. These protective measures ensure both the livestock and the equipment are kept safe.  Cattle guards are often used in place of gates to avoid having to stop and get out of the vehicle to open and close the gate. Once the gate or guard is set up, the lease pumper needs to take in all safety considerations. This includes the distance between the highway and the cattle guard or gate. There should always be enough space for a large truck and trailer, a well servicing unit, or other large vehicles to stop completely in front of the gate or guard, without cutting off the public roads in any way.

Lease Maintenance

To keep the gates and/or guards in tip-top shape, always make sure to properly clean out, and if needed, re-leveled to ensure the safety of the vehicles and animals. If the well becomes closed or abandoned, it is up to the lease operator to remove the cattle guard or to replace the sections of fence.

 

Oil & Gas Lease Expense Maintenance #2: Lease Office

Commonly referred to as dog houses, lease offices are usually a one room building that is around 8 feet wide and 12 foot long. However, the exact measurements typically depend upon the lease. The area is used to store a desk or work area for the lease pumper, and storage. Depending upon the lease, it can also house several different daytime pumpers. The exact specifics are typically determined by the size of the facility and lease.

For instance, some lease offices have an attached materials storage room, equipped with a truck unloading door; while others only house a single desk and a room for spare equipment. Remember, no matter what type of facility is on the property, you should always keep the lease office well maintained for both a great appearance, and the safety of anyone who frequents the building.

 

Oil & Gas Lease Expense Maintenance #3: Livestock Injuries

The majority of leases are located on land where livestock roam free (ex. ranch, farm, etc.). As a lease pumper, you will encounter livestock on a regular basis while driving around during your daily duties. However, when areas are not properly fenced, livestock may start the habit of seeking shade near the lease equipment (see figure 1). To keep these animals safe from injury to both themselves and the equipment, a lease operator should always install sufficient fencing to keep animals out. Remember: small animals (such as calves, goats, and sheep) often lie down in the shade and can easily fit under some fences; to avoid this issue, ensure you use the proper fencing options for all the livestock and small animals involved.

Lease Maintenance

Figure 2 – Cattle and other animals may seek the shade offered by the oil field equipment.

The land belongs to the landowner; and as such, they have the right to run livestock on the property. This also means they have the right to protect their livestock. Whenever you’re driving on the lease, always take care when near the animals. For instance, cattle may follow a lease pumper during the beginning of a lease. This is due to many herds are fed supplement feed, and thus may think you are there to feed them. Over time, they will realize you are not there for them, and will leave you to your duties.

Oil & Gas Lease Expense Maintenance #4: Off-Road Travel

The mineral lease agreement holds many of the specific details you will need. This includes: the location and type of road construction, how wide the roads are, as well as the location of the pits, tank batteries, and wells.  During the course of time, a mud hole may develop in a low area of the road. While a lease pumper may be tempted to just drive around the hole, you should always try to solve the issue at hand. For instance, in this case the pumper could bring a small load of rocks to fill and repair the road damage.

Lease pumpers should always avoid going off road whenever possible. Otherwise you put yourself at risk for damaging the property as well as a wide variety of violations, such as: collisions with livestock or equipment, dead grass, soil erosion, and more. Typically the first indication the landowner does not approve of the lease pumpers practices is by providing a bill to the lease operator for the specific damages. However, some landowners have been known to take direct action by changing the locks or even forbidding the lease operator from coming onto the property.

In some instances, a third party may be responsible for the damages (ex. well service crew). Nonetheless, the landowner will still characteristically place the blame on the lease operator. Regardless of who is at fault, or whether or not the damage is real or imaginary; serious problems can arise when anyone drives off the roads or locations of the lease. Always use common sense to determine the best course for inspecting nearby installations. For example, walk to the location if a problem could occur from driving there.

One of the best ways to help prevent issues is to nurture the relationship with the landowner. Many lease pumpers become close friends with the landowners, which can provide them with a little more breathing room. For instance, in the event of a problem; the landowner is more willing to talk to the lease pumper, rather than just get angry and withdraw.

 

Oil & Gas Lease Expense Maintenance #5: Open Pits and Vents

It is common to find open pits in an oil field. Unfortunately, due to the lower water tables, dams, and other issues; these pits also invite the local birds (and any migrating through the area) to land on or beside these ponds to get a drink. This has caused a number of animals and birds to die from drinking oil and/or non-potable water. The same thing goes for vents. When opened, vents can make an attractive location for nesting; and can often draw in bats, birds, squirrels, and other small animals.

We have already lost so many species of birds in our lifetimes, and hundreds more will be lost during our child’s lifetimes. Don’t contribute to this tragedy. Always guarantee you are following the proper regulations and protocols to protect the area wildlife. Pits should be fenced, coverings should be carefully planned and thought out, and make sure careful maintenance practices are followed.

 

Oil & Gas Lease Expense Maintenance #6: Plants and Animals

As a lease pumper, it’s a guarantee you will come into contact with plants and animals at some point throughout your line of work. While some plants are native to the area; others could be planted by the landowner to improve the land, as a cash crop, or any number of reasons. On the other hand, animals (including wild birds) are often regulated by the state fish and game board, or even federal regulations; and in some cases, the landowner may consider the wildlife as part of their property (even performing some degree of care for the creatures).

Birds can make nests on the oilfield equipment, animals may use the equipment for shelter, or livestock may find their way into the area. Despite these issues, both the lease pumper and the lease operator do not have the unconditional right to attempt to control these animals. For instance, if a bird is endangered, the pumper will have to wait until the eggs have hatched, and the young birds have left the nest before attempting to haul away the equipment. To make sure all proper procedures are followed, always talk to the land owner (and if necessary, the fish and game department) when you experience any issues caused by plants or animals.

 

Oil & Gas Lease Expense Maintenance #7: Road Maintenance

It can be very expensive to build and/or maintain roads. You can experience pot holes, mud or water in the road after excessive rains, or other surface issues that can develop over time. Due to this, unless you have a high producing well, there is typically little money available to go towards road maintenance. To help combat these issues (and prevent them from becoming larger issues), many lease pumpers will periodically perform various road services. This could include: putting small loads of gravel in mud holes, moving large rocks to the side of the road, or other road maintenance.

 

Oil & Gas Lease Expense Maintenance #8: Soil Contamination

Working as a lease pumper requires you to handle a wide variety of substances that are hazardous to the environment. This can include: chemicals, salt water, oil, petroleum production substances, and other various materials. Spills from any of these materials can pose an eminent risk to both humans and animals (livestock and wildlife) alike. These substances can kill plants, grass, and other vegetation; or even prevent anything from growing for the foreseeable future. Therefore, it is vital for a lease pumper to address any spills or leaks as soon as possible; and every effort must be made to clean up after the mess.

Sometimes this can be completed by simply following the directions on the product label. Other times, it may indicate soil should be mixed in with the spill; or water should be used to dilute it. Depending upon the circumstances, you may even be required to call in a specialty crew for clean up. Whatever the case, always make sure to report the incident to the proper regulatory agency.

 

Oil & Gas Lease Expense Maintenance #9: Trash Removal

You should never accumulate trash on the lease. A lease agreement does not give the lease pumper, or any other individual entering the lease, the right to scatter bottles, cans, or other trash along the way. Many of the roads on a lease are private, and it is up to the lease operator to remove all trash and keep the paths clean. The best method is to pick up any trash as soon as you see it. This way you never give trash the ability to accumulate. As a lease pumper, you should be able to drive over your entire lease without seeing a single piece of trash.

 

Oil & Gas Lease Expense Maintenance #10: Vista of Lease

The Vista of Lease is what refers to the general appearance of the equipment, and everything else on the lease. This includes: idle equipment, junk, pipe racks, scrap materials, and more. A lease pumper should keep in the habit of arranging everything in a neat and orderly fashion, with the pipe racks arranged in order. Proper protocols for materials should be utilized. This includes:

  • Using Available Stripping to Separate Layers of Pipe in Neat Stacks
  • Storing Equipment and Chemical Barrels in Aligned Rows
  • And More

Keeping things clean and organized is contagious. If you do it, so will the other workers; and the same goes for the reverse. If the site is constantly unorganized or chaotic, the workers will continue to follow those methods. Remember, a well organized stored equipment area is not unexpected benefit. It is a result of a well operated and organized company or group of people.

 

Oil & Gas Lease Expense Maintenance #11: Weeds

All equipment and stored materials should be clear of vegetation and weeds. Not only is this a fire hazard; but it can also increase rust or corrosion in the metal, cover up holes or other dangers, collect trash, and/or provide a refuge for small animals and/or snakes. Therefore, excessive vegetation should be addressed immediately by the lease pumper. This ensures the excess is always cleared away and trimmed back.

The Lease Pumper’s Cheat Sheet to Oilfield Emergencies

I have to admit one of my favorite perks of working as a lease pumper is how my job is rarely the same from day to day. Equipment status, the level of production, the conditions of the maintenance schedule, and a variety of other factors will determine the specific tasks you are required to do; and the tasks you do today, may not be the tasks required of you tomorrow.

Other times, you may repeat these tasks from day-to-day, but complete them in very different manners. For instance, you might: use different equipment, perform the tasks to distinct degrees, or travel to a wide range of location options.

On the other hand, you also need to be prepared for the unexpected; because at some point, you will encounter an unanticipated event. This could be: a leaking pipe, a locked up engine, livestock in the overflow pit, or any number of other surprises. Depending upon the severity of the emergency will determine exactly what you need to do. To help prepare you for your next emergency, remember these important facts.

Lease Pumper Emergencies

What Is An Emergency?

In short, an emergency is an event causing an undesirable result or one that has the potential to cause an undesirable result if the proper steps aren’t taken to correct it. As a lease pumper, you have to be prepared. You aren’t given a heads up that an emergency will present itself. It can happen any time, anywhere; from driving on the highway to or from the leases, to situations that arise on-site. (That reminds us, check out this blog post on Oilfield App for lightning strikes…)

For example, you could be on location when a large hole opens on the side of a stock tank causing oil to pour out onto the ground, forming a small pond. During this type of event, a lease pumper should immediately begin to circulate the oil out of the leaking vessel before switching the tank. Once completed, you should then call the office to request a vacuum truck to your location to pickup whatever oil can be salvaged. Remember time is money; and in order to keep the loss to a minimum, it requires quick action.

Prepare Yourself In Advance

During an emergency it’s too late to call your boss to find out what you should do; and in most cases, time does not permit you the luxury of contacting someone, researching for a specific number, or the person you want to contact cannot be reached. Thankfully, you can easily prepare for this by planning ahead with your supervisor. This will allow you to the correct procedures for you to follow when the circumstances arise. For instance, having the name of an approved vacuum truck operator will provide you with an extra course of action during the event you’re unable to get in contact with anyone at the office.

The list of potential emergencies you can come across is extensive; and often times, no one will even be aware there is an issue until a lease pumper arrives. Therefore, it is imperative to always have any and all relevant numbers required available in advance. This could include the electric company to report electrical issues, or the proper numbers for medical personnel for when there are life threatening situations.

More often than not, when performing these routine tasks or dealing with whatever emergency has occurred, you will be required to contact someone either by radio or telephone. If for any reason the lease pumper does not have a two-way radio or mobile telephone, then use the nearest phone. This could be from a farm, a nearby town, a ranch house, or another worker with a mobile communications device. This is also why a lease pumper should become familiar with the local area surrounding each lease. Get to know the people who live by. In order to be adequately prepared, a lease pumper should have at least two or more response options (and the information necessary to carry them out) planned out.

Typically, phone books are not available while on a lease site; and to be fair, it is highly unlikely a lease pumper will be able to memorize every resource they may have to be contact. (And that doesn’t even include the one or two backups for if the first choice cannot be reached.) For that reason, every lease pumper should create and store all the necessary information required for them to keep at hand; as well as what the lease pumper does and does not have the authority to do. This emergency information should include:

Emergency Telephone Numbers

As a lease pumper you may have to contact a variety of people and/or agencies while on the job, which you can easily keep track of by creating a spreadsheet or form and keeping it somewhere within your vehicle. However, since lease pumpers generally work at multiple sites spread over a large area, it is often best to have a separate form created for each of your different leases. For example, while two lease sites may be within 5 miles of one another; they could still be within different law enforcement jurisdictions or different fire districts. Keep in mind some small towns and rural areas are not equipped with 911 emergency services. Therefore, it is vital for a lease pumper to know what specific phone numbers to call during an emergency.

Typical emergency numbers should include the city and telephone number for the following:

  • Regular Lease Pumpers
  • Relief Lease Pumpers
  • Nearest Telephone (Name of Owner or Business and Location)
  • National General Emergency Number (Typically 911)
  • State Highway Patrol
  • City Police
  • Fire Department
  • At least 2 Hospitals and/or Paramedics
  • Federal Game and Fish Department
  • State Game and Fish Department
  • Forest Department
  • Environmental Department
  • And any other relevant numbers

Company and Personnel Communications

Another common list of contacts that is convenient to have on file is other company personnel and others who may work on the lease (ex. relief personnel). Even if the lease pumper is familiar with this information, they should always keep a comprehensive list for when they are: ill, on vacation, off duty, have a family emergency, or in case the information is needed by someone (ex. relief personnel) who is not familiar with the company, employees, or the staffing structure. The exact specifics required can vary from one operation to another, but each contact list should contain anyone who may be of value on the job or as a relief person, such as: 

  • Regular Lease Pumpers
  • Relief Lease Pumpers
  • Lease Operators
  • Contract Pumpers
  • And More

Field Support Services Telephone Numbers

Whether you’re a seasoned vet or just starting yoiur career as a lease pumper, times will occur when you have to buy supplies, or have maintenance performed you are not qualified or equipped to handle. Whatever the case, you will benefit from having contact information (including the physical address for those you need to get pickups from) on specific suppliers and service providers. A sample of these suppliers and support service resources can include:

    • Pipeline or Oil Transport Company
    • Water Transport Company
    • Rural Electrical Company
    • Electrical Services or Repairs
    • Electrical Motor Rewinding
    • Hot Oiling Services
    • Chemical Suppliers
    • Oilfield Supplies (multiple)
    • Maintenance and Construction
    • Wesll Servicing and Workover
    • Downhole Pump Repairs (multiple)
    • Engine and Mechanical (multiple)
    • Weekend or Emergency Numbers

Lease Information

Lease site locations are often in remote or hard to find areas. To help prevent confusion or problems reaching the site, make sure to always carry the appropriate details about each lease location. This information can be helpful for relief personnel, service providers, or any others unfamiliar with how to reach the site. This can also be helpful in finding alternate routes for the site for when normal routes are closed for weather or road construction. The goal is to provide accurate descriptions on how to reach the lease. This can include:

    • Descriptions of Cattle Guards
    • Distances
    • Highway Numbers
    • Highway Signs
    • Mile Markers
    • Road Divisions
    • Town Names
    • And/or Any Other Distinguishable Landmarks to Help Identify the Route
