Thread Protector Recovery Services

In addition to protecting the environment by preventing thousands of tons of plastics, metals, and pipe joint compounds from entering landfills each year. Our goal is to also assist oil and gas companies with maintaining clean, safe well site locations.

Storage, Transportation and Documentation

Super Sacks and Recycling Containers are a safe, clean, and economic way to store used thread protectors. Each storage type can hold multiple protectors in various shapes and sizes. Using these supplied storage options is the 1st step to preventing pipe joint compounds and other contaminates from causing harm to our environment. (Get a Quote for Recycling Bin Rental) 

Proper transportation and documentation are the 2nd steps to our recovery program. All used thread protectors removed from location are transported in cargo tarped trailers that abide by all state and federal DOT regulations. Each jobsite or well site cleanup will be documented with a waste manifest ticket for proof of recycle. Each company generated manifest, will be recorded in an annual waste reduction report and given to the appropriate HSE personnel for further filing. 

Disposal and Recycling

It is stated in the State Railroad Commission Articles C-3 and F-19: Thread protectors are a nonexempt waste and should be sent to a reclamation facility that removes pipe dope and other contaminates for proper disposal and/or recycling. This is the 3rd and final step of the recovery program.  

Wellbore’s facility is ISO 9001:2015 certified and compliant/licensed with TCEQ (Texas Commission on Environmental Quality) Reg. #96372.
