Buster’s Gate Asherton, TX - Feb 20

Buster’s Gate Asherton, TX - Friday, February 20, 2015
Morning 60 Degrees, Wind S 9 Mph, Humidity 68%, mostly sunny.
Afternoon 81 Degrees, Wind S 9Mph, Humidity 39%, sunny.  

Busy day an night at this gate, there is real “work” going on with sand trucks supplying the most activity here at the gate for the frak. The last two gates we had started with a week or two of work then just sitting watching tankers haul oil and water off site.

The service people are different now with this gate company as the water tank was filled today, that is all this person does. Another person doing the generator oil & filter change Wednesday and diesel fuel I will find out soon. When we worked for them before it was one person doing the work. We relieved another couple and then backed Buster in to this spot. The door on their rig was different location than Buster so I will get busy setting things better for our use at the site. the double gate guard setup so turning in vehicles do not block the road. The other guard just handles the gate and records license plate numbers and time. We do that and take names and number of persons inside the vehicles.
Frak Sand Box
The frak sand is brought to the site in containers, while I have seen bulk tank trailers going to other well sites they have to wait on site until they are unloaded. The sand box trailer can back haul two empty box’s to be refilled. Some trucks do not wait for an empty and depart without any containers.

Two empty sand box's going out
