Our relationship with Resolute Energy Corporation started even before the oil and gas company was founded. Jack Sprackling, Automation Manager at Resolute Energy, worked as a consultant in the automation industry and he frequently hired UCEC to build panels for his clients. Today, we’re a proud partner to Resolute Energy in their work in the oil and gas industry.

Based in Denver, Resolute Energy was founded in 2004. Its first operations were in Utah’s Aneth Field, and the company has since expanded to the Delaware Basin near Orla, Texas.

Jack gave us some insight to Resolute Energy. He calls the company “tight-knit” and says their focus has been on building their business by acquiring, developing and operating oil and gas properties, with a particular focus on oil production.

UCEC crafts control panels for Resolute Energy that are used in oil production, oil separation, produced water disposal, gas treating, gas compression and gas processing automation systems: machine control, process control, protective monitoring, alarm notification and historical data collection for production/process optimization. UCEC builds control systems that help “get oil and gas out of the ground, process and separate hydrocarbons and transport them to midstream facilities.” The industrial panels UCEC crafts are rugged, NEC code compliant and built to withstand outdoor elements.

Because of the nature of the oil and gas business, when Resolute Energy gets the go-ahead to order custom electrical panels from UCEC, the lead time is fairly short. “We’ve been working together for so long, that we can count on UCEC to get our parts in fairly quickly,” Jack notes.

We appreciate the ability to do Functional Acceptance Testing at the UCEC shop. We can power up and test everything so there are no surprises in the field.
— Jack Sprackling, Automation Manager, Resolute Energy Corporation

“There is a lot of mutual trust between our two organizations,” Jack continues. “If UCEC sees something that doesn’t make sense or if they figure out a way to save us on costs, we trust their judgement.”

We continue to enjoy working with Resolute Energy and are pleased to help them succeed for many more years to come.

Mark is CEO and President of UCEC.
