Smaller footprints. Bigger throughputs.

Between intense surface access requirements and aggressive environmental compliance demands, separation and storage equipment in the Niobrara-DJ Basin must be designed with both strength and flexibility. That’s why so many operators in the area trust  Westerman equipment.

Niobrara-DJ Overview

This liquid-rich play is located in Northeast Colorado and Southwest Wyoming. Dating back to 1970, today's Niobrara-DJ Basin has a lot to offer operators—with production potential forecasted to more than double by 2023. And gas takeaway capacity will be a limiting factor. But it's a challenging area of operation with constant pressure from communities and regulatory agencies. The region's aesthetics are highly prized by residents, who can have a strong NIMBY attitude. This makes the region a strong fit for our high-performance Niobrara-DJ separators, which do the work of up to four standard units.

Separation and Storage Challenges

Acceptable Visibility

Communities appreciate the jobs, energy and infrastructure that the industry brings to the region. But they don't necessarily want to see surface processing equipment. Our units can keep production at peak efficiency even with a small footprint.

Emissions Compliance

This area has some of the strictest environmental standards and penalties in the nation. Worthington's state-of-the-art welding technology means tighter seals to protect against leaks and fugitive emissions.

Remote Locations

Some production areas in the region are hours away from the nearest field office. Westerman's equipment can come wired for remote-monitoring solutions to avoid unnecessary trips.
