I am thrilled to announce that Halker Consulting has been named a “Top Contractor” for Colorado and Wyoming for 2015 by ENR Mountain States’, a regional publication of Engineering News-Record. What’s more, of the 66 firms ranked by ENR, we came in at number 11 for work done at the Wells Ranch Central Processing Facility in Greeley, Colo.
This is an honor not just for the Halker engineers who worked on the Wells Ranch project – and there are many names on that list – but for everyone at Halker who has helped build the firm into the successful, award-winning place that it is. This is a reflection of the fantastic work being done every day by our innovative and collaborative employees and clients to support the oil and gas industry here in Colorado and nationwide, and is truly humbling for all of us.
ENR Mountain States serves as the virtual face of the engineering industry in Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Utah and Wyoming, offering news and information about the people and projects of the region and encompassing all facets of the development, design and construction marketplace in the Rocky Mountain West. Its annual lists of the top providers in the industry are based on annual revenues both at home and abroad and rank companies engaged in general contracting, specialty contracting, engineering, architecture, planning and studies work.
The Central Processing Facility at Wells Ranch was an $80 million project designed to help our client better manage the production flow at its multi-well sites and better capitalize on the value of advanced drilling technologies. The exponential increase in production from multi-well drilling meant there was more oil and gas to manage at its sites, and with that came an equally exponential increase in site risk and environmental impact. Halker’s design not only helped the client save on costs at the site, but the installation is now safer and more environmentally compliant. The Centralized Processing Facility significantly decreased the overall environmental impact of the site, reducing the overall footprint, minimizing air emissions and road use, and cutting down on water consumption.
