Oil & Gas Industry

The Oil & Gas industry has a significant financial investment in pipeline and oil field infrastructure which they implicitly trust Badger Daylighting™ and the Badger Hydrovac System to provide safe hydro-excavation and daylighting services to meet their high safety standards and protect their assets when unearthing buried pipelines. Badger Hydrovac trucks use a high-pressure water and vacuum system to trench and dig with superior accuracy.

Oil and Gas infrastructure (which includes an extensive North American pipeline network) can be extremely dangerous to excavate if not done correctly. Badger hydrovac’s robust vacuum truck platforms and non-destructive methods of excavation are called upon by the Oil and Gas industry, as a preferred method to machine excavation, to expose existing buried infrastructure – even in extreme climates and temperatures. In fact, most facility owners and pipeline operators stipulate that all excavations around buried facilities must be performed by hydrovac excavation units.

The Badger Hydrovac System is the simply the safest way to dig through varied soil conditions while keeping buried pipelines and other underground utilities safe.
