Fully-Integrated E&P & Pressure Pumping Co., Fayetteville Shale
Thank you for the excellent work you performed for us in Arkansas. You guys literally set the standard. I honestly never thought it would be possible to contain the dust like you had. You and your guys were very professional and easy to coordinate with, and I look forward to the opportunity to work with you again in the near future.
Every partnership is special to our team, but the results are what make a project a success. We don’t just say we control dust, we prove it. Our records prove we consistently help clients operate below the Action Level, improve employee safety and put their wellsites into compliance.
Benefits & Impact
To drill, frac operations require millions of pounds of proppant sand, which produces silica dust. In 2017 alone, it’s estimated that the U.S. drilled enough lateral footage to completely circle the globe, generating 365,000 tons of silica dust. This dust can be toxic and life-threatening.
To safeguard employees, OSHA has lowered the allowable limit of silica dust on wellsites. AIRIS can help you operate below the new action level, allowing you to achieve compliance and harm-free job sites.
Frac operations require millions of pounds of proppant sand, which, in turn, generates over 20,000 pounds of silica dust.
AIRIS Safety Benefits
Because silica dust on frac sites can be life-threatening, OSHA has updated its required standards. AIRIS can help you operate below the new action level.
2018 Estimates for Frac Operations
In 2018 alone, the U.S. did enough lateral drilling to more than circle the globe, which generated hundreds of thousands of tons of silica dust.
