Location: Active Lease Site, Oklahoma
Services Provided: Land Reclamation
Whiterock received a call from the client who stated a vandal had opened a valve on an Aboveground storage tank that contained Diesel fuel for oil production operations. The fuel ran off the lease pad and entered an adjoining field of cropland. Our team responded immediately with a skid loader to contain the remnants of the release. Soil samples were then taken in a grid pattern to delineate the site. In the sandy cropland, the release had impacted soil to a depth of 6 feet. Whiterock Resources conducted a dig and haul to remove 400 cubic yards of impacted soil, manifested soil for disposal to permitted landfill, and backfilled the excavation with certified clean fill dirt. The client promptly received Site Restoration approval from the Oklahoma Corporation Commission.
