that operates 1,000 miles of gas gathering
pipeline and 75 miles of crude pipeline.

Tracerco Debuts Platform For Monitoring Fluid Flow
BILLINGHAM, UNITED KINGDOM-Tracerco, part of Johnson Matthey
PLC, announces the Tracerco™ Insights
Platform, a cloud-based digital platform
for interpreting and discussing tracer data.
With rapid tracer interpretation and
cloud-based reporting, Tracerco says, the
platform provides an efficient method for

Range Working Toward Net Zero GHG Emissions
FORT WORTH-Range Resources
Corp. has published its 2020 Corporate
Sustainability Report, which it says covers
a broader and deeper set of topics than
its predecessor.
"We have made significant progress toward our strategic sustainability goals over
the past year. The dedication of our employees to environmental stewardship has
driven substantial environmental and operational efficiencies, resulting in significant
cost savings," comments Jeff Ventura, the
company's chief executive officer.
Since 2017, the report says, Range
has reduced its absolute greenhouse gas
emissions 47%. In the report, the company
announces a new goal: achieving net zero
GHG emissions by 2025 by continuing
to limit emissions and employing carbon
offsets associated with reforestation and
forest management.
The report also highlights Range's approach to health and safety, noting its employees had zero incidents resulting in work
restrictions or days away from work in
2019. These employees spent more than
700 hours volunteering at company-spon-

help manage its gas gathering and processing requirements, Quorum relates.
"Quorum was the clear choice based on
its deep industry experience, knowledge of
the midstream business and understanding
of Brazos," says John Souders, Brazos
Midstream's controller. "We appreciated
Quorum's partnership approach and openness
to work with us toward a solution. With
myQuorum TIPS, we will be saving roughly
30 hours a month and completing our endto-end settlement process a lot faster."

tiveness of injection water or gas used
during field flooding, Tracerco adds.
"The Tracerco Insights Platform provides our customers with an innovative
solution to track project status, interpret
tracer data, visualize reservoir flow, more
easily highlight key findings and openly
discuss results through two-way dialogue.
Using the data, it allows critical reservoir
development decisions to be made quickly
and confidently," states Paul Hewitt, Tracerco's reservoir business director.
"In the case of unconventional wells,
drilling, completion and geological knowledge is automatically integrated with tracer
flow information to provide important
stage productivity insights," Hewitt continues. "This allows well landing, stage
location, stage design, well spacing and
formation selection to be optimized, which
in turn enables our customers to increase
hydrocarbon recovery, reduce costs and
maximize their return on investment."

Nonprofit Seeks Support To Plug Abandoned Wells
ARDMORE, OK.-OAP Fund (the Orphaned and Abandoned oil and gas well
Plugging Fund) announces its formation.
The nonprofit organization says it works
with licensed and bonded commercial
plugging companies, regulators and
landowners to remediate sites with orphaned and abandoned oil and gas wells.
There are 266,000-802,000 such wells
in the contiguous United States, OAP
Fund estimates. Because they are no
longer being properly maintained, these
wells can leak and contaminate surface
or underground water, soil and vegetation,
the nonprofit warns. With no current op-

erator, the responsibility for plugging the
wells falls on the host state, which only
may have to address a fraction of its
wells.
OAP Fund introduces itself as a team
of industry professionals with decades
of experience that has the technology,
relationships and knowledge to turn donations into plugged wells. The nonprofit
says it provides accounting on a per-well
basis, allowing donors to see their dollars'
dramatic effect.
For more information, contact Bobby
Wright, the fund's acting manager, at
405-401-1574 or visit oapfund.org. ❒
