Hunters: Do Not Trespass on Oilfield Equipment

Hunting season is around the corner and there is little participants won’t do to get an edge over their fellow hunters. In the case of using oilfield equipment as a vantage point to spot field animals, industry representatives are urging hunters to obey the No Trespassing signs. According to an oilfield representative, every year there is evidence that hunters have been perched on top of production tanks and other industry equipment. “A lot of tanks are new but some are old and you can’t really tell the difference. It’s important to stay off the tanks because it may look safe but you never know when there will be a rust hole in the wrong spot.” In order to be safe and to avoid breaking the law, hunters are all asked to trust the experts and stay off all oilfield equipment. It’s considered trespassing and is never allowed.
