Seeing is Believing: Why Oil and Gas Companies use Modified Shipping Containers

Posted by Paige Welsh on Wed, Jan 10, 2018 @ 09:30 AM

We’ve said it before on the blog—modified shipping containers are a superior alternative to travel trailers and skid mounted instrument buildings for oil and gas companies—but we also realize it’s important to show you. Falcon Structures’ newest Slideshare illustrates the key points in our guide, “Seven Reasons Oil and Gas Companies use Modified Shipping Containers.” Infographics and photos of modified shipping containers performing in the real world make our presentation a great tool for visual learners who want a quick overview. It’s a fast read, but we think the images will stick with you.

The SlideShare also includes statistics for people who appreciate a numbers perspective. For instance, did you know that Energy Transfer uses 317 modified shipping container units to house remote terminal units (RTUs) for pipeline monitoring? Click through and keep an eye out for other statistics that put the value of modified shipping containers into perspective.
