Often, an industry welcomes pioneers who are not afraid to take the first step into new territory. This bravery was undoubtedly the case for Black River Pumping Services, LLC. The oil testing and pumping experts are the first ever to operate a well in the upstate of New York since the state banned fracking a few years back.
Black River is a company that provides non-destructive oil testing, which complies with the highest international standards. The company services all oilfield pumping needs, including toe prep, frac pump down, and drill outs. Black River Pumping Services’ goal is always to ensure safety and efficiency in all oil pumping operations, checking all equipment and assets for defects and optimal function. Black River Pumping Services, LLC works to support some leading oil companies by giving access to the best testing and certification equipment and personnel in the industry.
The organization’s services include wireline pump down, pressure testing, drill outs, toe preps, tubbing installs, injection tests, coil tubing assist, acid displacement, kill jobs, well loading, backside pressure maintenance, and any other service needed to get the job done. Black River Pumping operates in Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Texas, and is one of the first-ever oil pumping companies to have operations in the upstate New York area.
The company operates through the leadership of CEO Dee Yetts. Dee started Black River after having worked for various companies in the past that didn’t deliver on the quality of service and commitment to safety that he was looking for. He started Black River Pumping Services and set it on a mantle of the most outstanding safety commitment. “Safety is at the core of our values,” shares CEO Dee Yetts. “We fully commit to the health and safety of our employees, customers, and community.”
High-Pressure Flow Iron inspection and certification is an essential part of the oil and gas industry. Without them, deploying equipment can become unsafe and damage property, production, and people. Exploration and production companies are required to get annual tests on all equipment. As a certified company, Black River meets that need by providing iron testing to today’s leading oil exploration companies.
Black River Pumping Services continually works to improve all oil pumping processes to ensure that every aspect of their operations is safe for their workers and all stakeholders. The company requires every employee to follow individual accountability to the company’s standards of safety. Black River believes that safety should be everyone’s responsibility and creates structure and culture to ensure that everyone from top management to individual workers place value and premium on safety.
The oil pumping company also carries some of the most distinguished certifications, including NDT testing; pull testing for chain slings, wire rope slings, synthetic and web slings, and any other lifting and rigging gear; and BOP testing. Black River Pumping Services also performs mobile testing, offering mobile units to a client’s location to run through the entire certification and recertification processes and inspections on the ground.
Black River uses the latest applications and equipment to carry out inspections and certifications to ensure practices and implementation. The company makes use of the most up to date TESSALink systems and RFID technology to give oil explorers easy and on-demand access to certificates.
