Reviews

I am writing to recommend Marty Comini and his company, Keystone Wireline, Inc. for future well plugging and abandonment projects. I have had the pleasure of working directly with Marty to plug a natural gas well located on our property in Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania.

When we purchased our home in 2017, the natural gas well in our backyard was operational and supplied gas to the home. We ultimately decided to plug and abandon the well, however, due to potential safety issues and difficulty with maintaining and servicing the well. Shortly after contacting Keystone Wireline, Mr. Comini reached out to me directly and offered to immediately come to our home and provide an estimate for the project.

Despite a challenging neighborhood location and limited information about the well, Mr. Comini was confident that it could be plugged safely and effectively. From the time that he provided me with an estimate, to completion of the project, Mr. Comini and his team have been wonderful to work with. Mr. Comini has always taken the time to explain each step of the process to me in advance, and he never failed to answer my questions or respond to emails and calls, regardless of the time of day.

Throughout the project, Mr. Comini and his team have been exceptionally accommodating when dealing with unforeseen conditions and challenges. Mr. Comini seamlessly coordinated with multiple subcontractors and the PA DEP, which was no small feat, and provided a truly full-service operation. They also took the utmost care to ensure a safe working environment while minimizing disruption to our home and neighborhood.

Furthermore, Mr. Comini was very mindful of staying within budget and always provided daily progress reports that detailed each step of the process. Please consider Marty Comini and Keystone Wireline for any plugging and abandonment needs. I highly recommend them and would not hesitate to work with them again.

As homeowners who just had our well filled through Ohio's Orphan Well Program, we would just like to extend our great gratitude for all the hours, time, and commitment it took on multiple levels to give us a safe backyard again for our family.

Upon buying our house in May 2018, we never imagined that this project would already be completed! Although the process was much more intense than we would have thought, we could not be happier with the outcome.

First of all, we would like to thank Gene Chini, head of the Orphan Well Program, for spending countless hours with us on the phone as we took the calculated risk of purchasing a house with an orphaned natural gas well. We appreciate him taking the time to speak with us throughout this whole yearlong process and answering our many questions. We are very grateful for his time and expertise.

Secondly, in a very special way we would like to thank Keystone Construction for their outstanding work on the project. Marty Comini, owner of Keystone Construction, was fabulous from the first time we spoke and did an excellent job communicating throughout the entire process. He never left a text or phone call unanswered no matter what time of the day or night that I contacted him. Him and his team were extremely considerate and constantly checked in to make sure that everything was going well on our end. This was especially important to us as the day they began the project we brought home our second child from the hospital!

In addition, while Marty did an excellent job coordinating all aspects of the project and communicating with us, his team constantly impressed us. In particular, Dan Dulude and Kevin Parsons showed up day after day making sure not just that everything was done, but it was done correctly. It was so reassuring to know that
they genuinely cared about our well-being. In fact- even though we don't miss the mess- we truly do miss seeing Dan at our house everyday! Not often do you feel that way with contractors and it speaks a lot to the level of professionalism that they had day in and day out.

Once again thank you for your work and for hiring a great company to make our yard a place to call home. We are very grateful and consider it a great blessing.

Sincerely,
Andrea & Michael Turk, Lakewood, OH
