Heat Required for Drilling Marcellus Shale Gas Field
Cub & Pureheat units keeping fracture drilling on-line
The drive is on to tap into what may be one of the largest natural gas deposits in the United States. Approaching fever-pitch, drilling continues 24/7, 365 days a year using a water and sand fracing process. However, the Northeast winters pose significant challenges to keep the water from freezing, so drilling can continue.
To combat subfreezing temperatures, contractors are employing dozens of Cub air and Pureheat hydronic heaters from Wacker Neuson Climate Control to keep the multi-million dollar operations on-line. more
