American Energy Works: Protecting the Environment
Posted August 8, 2012
John Suchar is an environmental specialist for Williams’ natural gas operations in Colorado. His work is about ensuring the small footprint – that his company disturbs as little as possible during drilling operations and then makes things as they were when the work is finished. Suchar:
“Our ultimate goal with all of our projects, whether it’s well pads or pipelines, is to reclaim that site to pre-disturbance condition. We want our footprint to be as small as possible and to look like we were never here.”
Check out the rest of John’s story in this video:
