Have you taken the time to educate your customer on the proper care and maintenance of their new resource?
By Michael J. Schnieders, PG, PH-GW
Think of the big purchases you make in your daily life: Car, washing machine, hot water tank, or even the roof. Now, think about your company and purchases made for work: laptop computer, coffee pot, drill rig, etc.
When we look at these purchases or are asked to comment on expenditures, we weigh the cost versus the expected service life as part of the decision-making process. We look at potential maintenance needs and replacement costs. This information helps to project a value and assign a service life to said item.
How often have you seen this applied to a well?
