“GEOSAMPLE TANK” verses other So-Called Alternatives
I was fortunate to demonstrate the overwhelming superiority of the “GEOSAMPLE TANK SYSTEM” on a recent well. The location was in East Central Alberta where the Drilling Contractor had made arrangements to supply what they thought would be sufficient for the containment of Invert Contaminated Washing Effluent. The set up was a small rubber “Horse Watering Trough (TUB)” located at the drain of the Sample Wash Shack.
Several problems transpired over the first well such as:
1) The Trough was too small to handle the volume of Effluent daily; in fact the “Vac Truck” was parked at the Tub to pump it every two hours day & night.
2) The “Tub” was so flimsy that a 12 foot 2 x 4 had to be installed under it to prevent the “Tub” from collapsing and spilling its contents.
3) Thirdly, as the weather deteriorated and the Alberta torrential rains started the “Tub” was overflowing even faster than normal.
With the Drilling Supervisor completely frustrated with the situation I showed him a brochure copy of the “GEOSAMPLE TANK”. Arrangements were made and the Tank was installed on the second well. The “GEOSAMPLE TANK’S” water tight design was demonstrated when we pumped down the Tank after each Horizontal Leg Run (~800 metres). The Tank was floating like a boat in the Rain Flooded pit it was installed in. Needless to say even with the flooded & muddy Lease the “GEOSAMPLE TANK” performed flawless; another “GEOSAMPLE TANK SYSTEM “successBack
