Newpark Unveils New Mat Cleaning System

Drilling and completion crews can now handle the biggest rig mat cleaning jobs in hours instead of days, thanks to the new DURA-BASE T-REX Mat Cleaning System. Newpark Mats and Integrated Services, a unit of Newpark Resources and a leading provider of matting solutions to the oil and gas industry, today announced the launch of this innovative mat cleaning system.

Drilling and completion operations are set to become more efficient for companies working in the Marcellus region, thanks to the introduction of the DURA-BASE T-REX Mat Cleaning System. The T-REX compliments Newpark’s widely used DURA-BASE Advanced-Composite Mats and was developed to drastically reduce the time needed to clean rig matting and speed the site-to-site redeployment of equipment and completion operations.

“When we heard from our customers how much time it was taking to clean their rig mats and get them to the next site, our R&D team got to work developing a system that would streamline the process,” said Jeff Juergens, president of Newpark Mats and Integrated Services. “The DURA-BASE T-REX Mat Cleaning System helps our customers to move their operations more rapidly, saving them valuable time and money.”

The DURA-BASE T-REX Mat Cleaning System alleviates the tedious hassle of cleaning the mats manually and is fully contained, which reduces the amount of water required by recycling it. Additionally, the highly mobile T-REX goes whenever and wherever needed. Transported via tractor trailer, the system can be deployed anywhere throughout the Marcellus region.

While Newpark’s roll out of the T-REX will initially be limited to the Marcellus, the company plans to expand the offering to other markets.
