The surge in shale gas production has had a transformative effect on the energy landscape of the United States. Production of...
Hard Rock's two core prospects are located in the Appalachian Basin. The Appalachian Basin is known for long-life wells that can have a production life of over 75 years.
Hard Rock is the 6th largest regional buyer of tubular and well equipment, and receives the best pricing from its suppliers. Hard Rock has excelled in driving drilling and equipment costs down by as much as 35-50% below the reported industry averages.
Hard Rock uses air-driven horizontal drilling technology to drill through the Devonian Shale pay zone. One horizontal well has the potential of replacing several vertical wells with much greater production at much lower costs.
Nitrogen fracking alleviates the environmental concerns involved with the produced water resultant of hydraulic fracturing. With Nitrogen used as a fracturing medium, there are no water disposal concerns. Hard Rock's use of Nitrogen fracturing requires less surface area and water than hydraulic fracking.
Hard Rock's horizontal drilling techniques and nitrogen fracking use fewer chemicals, less water and less surface disturbance. Hard Rock has a proven track record of doing excellent reclamation work that prevents damage to the environment and personal property.
