Penn E&R completed the design, permitting, and construction of the Nelson Welles Surface Water Intake in north central Pennsylvania, which consisted of a high volume surface water withdrawal and truck loading station capable of delivering 590 GPM or 850,000 GPD for use in natural gas well construction, drilling, and completion activities. The project required work to be completed in an environmentally sensitive area, in coordination with multiple state, regional, and federal regulatory agencies under tight client schedules and budgets. With the exception of several specialty trades, Penn E&R completed all aspects of the project from engineering design and permitting to construction using in-house manpower and resources.
