Smart beats lucky every time.

Pump Jacks

You wouldn’t hang out at a construction site and climb on the crane, right? Pump jacks are no different. A pump jack is a device used in oil production when the pressure inside a well isn’t sufficient to force oil to the surface. There are lots of heavy, moving parts on a pump jack. Fact is, if you’re not a trained pro, pump jacks are no place to be. Period.


Counterweights can weigh up to 20,000 lbs. That’s enough to crush a car.

Electrical Box

Electrical boxes power the entire pumping unit. Touching it is as bad as grabbing a power line. So don’t do it.

A Horsehead?

Think it’s safe when stalled? Nope. It’s on a timer that can start without warning.

Storage Tanks

Ever use a cell phone by a gas pump? Or worse, light a match? Hopefully, the answer is "No." Doing either by storage tanks is just as bad. These steel tanks safely store crude oil, water and other liquids commonly handled and stored at wellsites. Treat these tanks the way you would anything flammable - with respect. But it’s best to be smart and stay away.

The Hatch

Hatches on storage tanks are closed for a reason - to keep the fumes inside where they belong.

The Stairs

The stairs on storage tanks can be up to two stories tall. Mess around up there and it’s a long way down.

No Trespassing

Messing around on a well site is not only dangerous - it’s also illegal. If you hang out here, you’re trespassing on private land. Trespass on a well site and it could mean a $100 fine. Or worse, jail time. So respect other people’s property, and your own safety. Stay out.

Don't Get Hurt

Barbed wire fences are here to keep you out. Try to climb one and you could get hurt.


Pipelines are found all over, not just on well sites. They’re one of the safest ways to transport oil and natural gas around the country. But if you’re not trained, tampering with them can be dangerous.

Heater Treaters

Heater Treaters are an essential piece of equipment in the production process. They breakup wellstream emulsions, separating the crude oil from water and other foreign material. These heated separator tanks can reach 140+ degrees. You wouldn't touch a stove top, so don't touch these.

Don’t Tamper With A Well Site.

If you’re tampering with equipment on a well site, you’re looking for trouble. And if you’re not trained to be there, you just might find it. So be smart and stay away.
