GREEN Access & Fall Protection Offers Portable Loading/Unloading Platforms for Shale Oil Applications
Press release date: January 15, 2013
GREEN Access & Fall Protection, the industry’s leading access and fall protection equipment manufacturer for tank trucks and rail cars, offers portable loading/unloading platforms designed specifically for use in remote shale oil fields. Billions of dollars are being invested in the development of infrastructure as oil and gas production continues to surge in the United States. Estimates project as much as $45 billion being invested in constructing new or redeveloping existing infrastructure, which includes building pipelines and investing in rail cars and terminals.
While many are looking to capitalize on the shale-industry boom, few are properly investing in the necessary transportation infrastructure to move the shale oil once it’s been extracted. GREEN Access & Fall Protection offers the flexibility to utilize a temporary loading station that can be broken down and taken to the next facility or project, rather than being installed as a permanent platform that can only be used at one location. The modular equipment, for example, can be installed at a transloading facility on one side of the rail line to unloading fracking sand.
While the Oil & Gas industry invests in building pipelines, the greater short-term transportation option is the utilization of rail cars to bring product to market. Portable loading and unloading platforms from GREEN Access & Fall Protection ensure the safe and efficient loading and unloading of valuable resources.
