CDM Boosts Niobrara Shale Capability

Office expansion supports expected growth from play


Published:

CDM Resource Management LLC is expanding its Greeley, Colorado, facilities to meet growing demand for compression services in the Niobrara Shale play of Colorado and Wyoming.

It is adding 2100 sq. ft. (1950 m2) of office space at 1919 65th Ave., a few miles away from its existing 5000 sq. ft. (4645 m2) warehouse at 917 E 18th St. in Greeley.

CDM said the expansion supports its current contract compression fleet of 47,000 hp (35 MW) and projected 45% growth in the Denver-Julesburg Basin by end of 2014.

The warehouse stores parts, cranes, wash trailers and equipment and has a yard with space for 15-20 compressor packages.

The additional space will serve as a local office and provide space for training on equipment, PEC, first aid and PSM standards. The technical and safety training programs are designed for new hires, current employees and customers. CDM recently designed a safety program specifically for the employees of its customers in the Niobrara.

“We continue to focus on the needs of the industry with safety being our number one goal and training being the most valuable tool we provide our employees and customers,” said Brian Fread, regional vice president of operations for Central Texas and Colorado.
