Digital applications and computer rendering are commonly offered by most frac service providers. Reliance has a long history with NOV Rolligon, a globally respected fabricator that has always been on the forefront of offering the most durable and up-to-date treatment-related data acquisition systems and software.
Innovation is the bedrock of technology for oil and gas service companies. Change is constant and necessitates a high level of discipline to keep up with the evolution of best practices. Reliance itself has created systems to dampen fines when running silica sands. We've developed better chemical handling and disbursement practices. We are engaged in a study of polyacrylamides with the National Energy Technology Laboratory, funded by the Department of Energy. Our outlook on safety is one of common sense, which has resulted in more than 12 years of operations without a serious job site accident.
Reliance is committed to fully engaging with experts across all disciplines and is constantly testing its own practices against newly evolving practices within our industry. That is the reason why Reliance is on a first-call basis with nearly every operator it has ever worked with.
Transparency with customers, employees, and vendors is at Reliance's core. Every job will have an open mic and there will never be meetings held away from customers. Shortfalls, if any, will be immediately disclosed with the understanding that you can fix a mistake but never a lie.
