Vantage Energy considers responsibility a core value, and environmental stewardship a key component of our operational success. We must take care of the communities we live in and be good stewards of the resources we develop. We work with all stakeholders – employees, contractors, landowners and local residents to understand environmental concerns and to continue to minimize our surface impact. At Vantage, we have a strict commitment to adhering to regulations, but we take it a step further by constantly improving our internal benchmark for environmental responsibility.
During flowback, we work to eliminate emissions by employing green completions technology. This is a commonly used operational practice in our Texas operating area.
Closed loop mud systems eliminate the need for open mud drilling pits which reduces the impact on the local ecosystem while minimizing our loction footprint. Vantage utilizes these environmentally friendly systems in both Texas and Pennsylvania operating areas.
In our Texas operations we are utilizing water pipelines to greatly reduce the impact of truck traffic while hauling water . This reduces our carbon emissions and increases operational efficiency.
Electric powered drilling rigs reduce noise pollution in our urban development areas and reduce carbon emissions. We are routinely using this environmentally conscious method in our Texas operation.
Going above and beyond the regulations, we voluntarily report our fracking fluid chemicals for all hydraulically fractured wells. Transparency and commitment to our stakeholders are core values throughout the company.
To protect the environment, we use protective liners on well pads and drill sites in many of our locations.These liners improve our reclamation time and minimize disturbance to the pad surface.
