Steep Slope Cuts

Unprotected Steep slope cuts next to drill pads can pose a variety of problems. If there is a lot of rain then erosion can quickly degrade the slope onto vital working areas causing disruptions.

Similar to pad and access road sediment control hydromulching is an option to stabilizing steep slopes. Using a strong erosion control product such as NaturesOwn X9000 ™ BFM (Bonded Fiber Matrix) creates a strong matrix over sediment and supports plant growth if needed. NaturesOwn X9000 provides erosion control benefits for years to come and then fully biodegrades. The product is certified as a bio preferred product by the USDA.
