Best Practices: Landscaping

No landowner wants an eyesore on their property, and Cutter Oil is not in the business to put one there.

Working with our Landowners

Explanation: A lot of producers use third party contractors to perform the landscaping around their wells. These contractors often times follow their own rules and guidelines for the job and will take shortcuts to maximize profits at the expense of the landowners. Cutter Oil and our employees work directly with all of our landowners on a case by case basis to ensure that our landowners are informed and happy with the end result of each location.

Result: No landowner wants an eye sore on their property and Cutter Oil is not in the business to put one there. We treat all of our landowners’ property as if it were our own and we feel that the pictures speak for themselves.

Examples: The following images compare the Cutter Oil English Unit #1 and a competitor’s well. Both wells were completed at the same time, however, the competition drilled their well in July of 2007 while Cutter Oil drilled the English Unit was drilled on November 14th, 2007. The difference is obvious on the level of care that we take over our competition.

Board-on-board Fencing

Explanation: The Ohio Department of Natural Resources requires that fencing be installed around all well equipment. It however does not mandate any particular type of fencing. We believe that board-on-board fencing offers the most aesthetically pleasing looking to our locations. This is something that none of our competition does.

Result: We think the pictures speak for themselves.

Examples: As you can see in the images below, there is a clear difference in appearance between metal slat fencing and Cutter Oil’s board-on-board fencing. Our 10 feet high fence hides nearly all detection of the oil and gas equipment.

Cutter Oil has a proven ability to get the most out of our wells. Our wells produce more in the beginning and have a much longer life than any competitor, ultimately translating into more money for our landowners.
