Workover Operation Evaluation
HRP conducted a third-party evaluation of a workover operation on behalf of a petroleum and natural gas exploration/production company. The workover was performed at approximately 12,000 feet below mean sea level. A State Department of Environmental Protection delivered a cease and desist order during the operation and subsequently issued a consent order due to concerns of potential impact to surficial potable water supplies.
The workover operation was designed and performed in accordance with standard industry practices, and did not pose a threat to potable groundwater, nor contribute to the violation of any applicable groundwater quality standards.
