Oilfield Site Mowing


Oilfield Site Mowing

Professional oilfield site mowing requires the requisite skill of acreage mowing with the ability to mow according to strict specifications.  Not every field mowing company can do it, so choose wisely if you are looking for an oilfield site mowing company. This article can help. We are Keith’s Tractor Mowing, serving the Greater Fort Worth area, and we know about all there is to know about oilfield site mowing and pipeline mowing. Call us if you have questions.

The logistics of oilfield site mowing

Here is a truth you can hang your hat one: oilfield site are not nice, neat, and level.  It just doesn’t work like that.  The oil can be anywhere, and topography is not a factor. Oil can be anywhere, and the above-ground situation just doesn’t affect oil location at all.

Which is to say that oilfield site mowing can be easy but, in most cases, is extremely difficult . . . uneven ground, thick brush, large boulders, small saplings, all must be cleared and/or mowed so that the oil drilling can be done and the pipeline can be laid, and all of that is a job for an experienced professional.

Are you looking for such a professional oilfield site mowing expert?  Look for the following before making a choice.

Look for liability insurance

For example, Keith’s Tractor Mowing carries a $1 million liability insurance policy to cover any problem while doing a job.  Look for something similar from any company you hire.  Accidents happen on an oilfield site. This is not some easy acreage mowing job, or some walk-in-the-park field mowing task. Problems occur on oilfield sites, and liability insurance is the only sure-fire protection.

Look for experience

We cannot say this enough: hire experience for any oilfield site mowing job and brush hog clearing job. Our apologies to those companies just starting out; it seems extremely unfair to eliminate them from consideration, but you are better off doing exactly that.  Experience counts on difficult mowing jobs.  Pipeline mowing is not a job where people should train or practice.  Professionals are needed in order for the job to be done properly.

Look for the right equipment

Heavy-duty brush hog clearing machines and rough-and-tumble tractor mowing machines are needed for oilfield site mowing.  Nothing else will do the job properly.  When you talk to companies about doing the job for you, ask them what machinery they have available.

Do not make price the most important factor

We cannot emphasize this point enough.  Everyone is looking for a good deal, but for jobs like oilfield site mowing, the cheapest quote most likely is not the best quote.  Too much goes into a pipeline job; too much experience is needed; too many things can go wrong; to undercut in price is to say you don’t understand just how much expertise is needed. Generally speaking, stay away from a price which seems too good to be true.
