Containment Well Cellar Installation

Installation of your Cellar Tech Containment Well Cellar is a straight forward exercise requiring basic excavating equipment. A small crew can install multiple cellars in a single day and our Containment Well Cellars can be installed simultaneously while conductors are being set on the same pad.  Cellar Tech currently offers installation services for our Containment Well Cellars as well as conductors in the Marcellus and Utica Shale Plays.  More information please contact us today or visit our services page.
