North Dakota is the new Texas when it comes to fuel extraction. Deep within the Earth’s crust is a highly sought-after goldmine centering on abundant shale deposits which must be extracted through a process called hydraulic fracking. This extraction has companies locked in a battle to tap into the multimillion-dollar market.
The Fracking Process
Hydraulic fracking, or commonly known simply as fracking, is big business (fracking uses pressure and proppants to break open oil shale and extract to the surface). Moving the petroleum or natural gas from the ground to the gas pump safely is just one of the many important problems to solve. Once above ground the extracted slurry is then transported to fracking plants, which process the material.
Fracking Ramps Protect Hoses
Most oil and natural gas wells in North Dakota require more than 650 truckloads to transport the material. Due to the high volume of trucks, the companies have been looking for a safe yet inexpensive solution to unload the hundreds of trucks without disturbing other hoses and lines already releasing their payload.
As a solution, Handi-Ramp has taken the next step to design and manufacture a ramp specifically for the aforementioned problem. Their fracking ramps are custom made products for the oil field industry to protect such hoses from being crushed by the trucks transporting the fracking slurry. This allows trucks the ability to move in and out of an oil field site without disturbing the various hoses and pipes scattered about.
