Continental Disc Corporation was recently called on to solve a problem for an E&P (Exploration and Production) company in the Green River Basin of Sublette County, in western Wyoming. The area is known as a vital source of natural gas, but also serves as the source of a lightweight form of sweet oil. Companies who wish to drill and operate in this specific area must first receive permits from the State of Wyoming. The permits are in place to control VOC emissions and are most commonly broken due to open thief hatches (venting vapors from the thief hatches without routing the vapors to a flare).
Engineered to fail. It sounds preposterous! Imagine a car company boldly asserting that they’ve engineered their vehicles to break down. Consider the ramifications of a Personal Computer maker revealing that their computers were designed to crash. Engineering for failure, simply put is not a sound business strategy, except when it comes to rupture discs
