As a distributor of utility locating equipment, our clients often seek better ways to locate un-traceable pipelines. Some companies have invested in hugely expensive, high-tech ground penetrating radar or GPR, only to find that it has limitations in Colorado, Utah and Wyoming, because of the clay soil and shale oil deposits.
On Sunday, Colorado Air Quality Control Commission approved new regulations, which require all oil wells to regulate emissions including methane. According to Nobel Energy Vice President, Ted Brown, "This is the toughest regulatory landscape in the country."

Okay, I admit it! I'm a Denver Broncos fan. "Go Broncos!" I've been waiting 15 years to display this kind of enthusiasm. I started thinking, 'I should write a blog and wish them luck.' You know, put some good mojo out into cyberspace so that the Broncos can be supported by the cyber gods.
Here's an idea from IMAC Systems, when installing your pipeline strainers consider tagging the area with a strainer nameplate.
We all know that strainers are the last line of defense to protect expensive pipeline equipment against line debris and foreign matter. With the introduction of the IMAC Systems Strainer Nameplate one can now take the guesswork out of locating their strainers as they mark the installation location, clearly saying "STRAINER INSIDE."
The new nameplates are extremely versatile, durable and visible. They allow the installer to identify where strainers are present in the pipeline.
The nameplates will work well for most strainers, including gasket strainers, witches hats, cone strainers and flanged "T" strainers.

In the business world the term success conjures up images of inflated bottom lines, awards and recognition from professional associations, and new toys and assets acquired from escalating income. While all this is fine, at this point in my life, I’ve been looking for the deeper meaning of success.
