Complying with noise ordinances when drilling close to urban development can waste valuable time and money. ENC uses state-of-the-art computer noise impact modeling software to help our clients make informed decisions about noise control issues. We can create an environmental noise impact model of specific drilling rigs and predict operational drilling noise levels at nearby houses, parks, businesses, or other noise sensitive areas. We can evaluate noise mitigation options with the noise impact model to determine the most cost effective solution to various drilling related noise problems.

Our drilling rig noise impact models are based on operational field drilling rig noise levels measured by ENC personnel. Over the years, we have measured and compiled operational drilling rig noise level data from many rig fleets including Patterson, H&P, Ensign, Felderhoff, Patman, Pioneer, Nomac, Nabors, Grey Wolf, Goober, Cheyenne, Aquila, Unit, Bronco, and others. Using sound level data from specific drilling rigs, ENC can make more accurate noise impact models and make recommendations on rig layout and equipment positioning.
