Well Pad and SSE TruckOil & Gas Services

Stahl Sheaffer Engineering provides an array of civil engineering services for many gas well exploration and production companies operating throughout the Marcellus and Utica Shale plays.

We bring value to clients involved with gas exploration in a number of ways. We are very knowledgeable of the regulations in PA, OH, WV, and NY, and we understand the dynamic nature of the regulations and their requirements. Our road condition survey technology, available through a client-specific GIS portal, helps companies map routes and fast track road repairs to meet the requirements of the various Departments of Transportation. The portal includes many layers, including areas that are open to drilling, posted road limits, etc. We are actively managing 1,200 miles of state and township roads.

We have the resources to provide our clients with the engineering design, transportation plans, surveying, permit processing, environmental assessment, material acquisition, transport and storage, agency coordination, and management capability to facilitate the extraction and collection process from start to finish.
