QEP – Case Study

We respect the environment and the communities where we live, work and operate. An example of our commitment to developing natural resources in a safe and responsible manner is our activity in Wyoming’s Green River Basin on the Pinedale Anticline – an area which represented 31% of QEP’s year-end 2015 proved reserves.

For many years at our Pinedale Field, QEP has utilized:

  • Pad drilling and subsurface wellheads to minimize surface disturbance
  • Drilling rigs equipped with low-emission engines and catalytic emission controls
  • Centralized liquids gathering systems that have eliminated hundreds of thousands of tanker trips
  • Green completions, including 99% flare-less completions, and low-emission engines on all fracturing trucks
  • Natural gas instead of diesel to heat the drilling rigs in the winter months
  • Low emission engines and turbines on compressors
  • Wildlife monitoring, sage brush enhancements and offset habitat protection/mitigation
