Pioneer is converting a limited number of its 800 pick-up trucks to run on compressed natural gas (CNG) to see if the fuel presents a viable alternative to gasoline or diesel. “As far as cost savings, it’s a clear winner if you are working in an area where CNG is available,” says Well Servicing District Manager Daniel Hindes.
Pioneer’s entry into the Grand Junction, Colo. region with a new Wireline Services operation has the company poised to capitalize on improving market conditions. The Wireline staff in Grand Junction has a lot of experience in the area and is well-connected, which has produced a number of contacts with potential clients.
Wireline Services Technical Manager Gary Fisher was a part of the Association of Energy Service Companies (AESC) delegation to Washington, D.C. to meet with members of Congress about important oil and gas industry issues.
