E. J. Breneman utilizes new and innovative paving technologies in the business of maintenance and construction of well-pads and highways. Using their Soil Stabilization and Full Depth Reclamation processes, the company is a leader in the road construction industry. Over the years, Breneman has worked for nearly two dozen oil and gas companies in the construction of their well sites. The company works all over the country and has built sites in the Marcellus, Utica and Permian Basins.
The company continues to meet the challenges of the future with honesty and commitment to the highest quality in innovative road construction and maintenance. E. J. Breneman also offers soil drying and soil cement stabilization, processes that permanently alter existing soils by using a stabilizing additive.
E. J. Breneman is the contractor of choice for many commercial site contractors as well as gas and oil operators. They are often called upon where deadlines are tight and safety is a priority. Their crews and management teams are accustomed to working within tight time constraints and can deploy multiple crews and equipment to sites in order to meet challenging schedules.
Breneman utilizes new and innovative paving technologies in the business of maintenance and construction of highways. Using our soil stabilization and Full Depth Reclamation processes, the company is a leader in the road construction industry. EJ Breneman continues to meet the challenges of the future with honesty and commitment to the highest quality in innovative road construction and maintenance. Three innovative processes play into the success of the company: soil stabilization, a great benefit in the oil/gas industry, full-depth reclamation, which reinforces roadways by enhancing the substrate on which the road is built and soil drying, which reduces moisture content and improves stability.
Soil Stabilization is the alteration of soils to enhance their physical properties. Stabilization can increase the shear strength of a soil and/or control the shrink-swell properties of a soil, thus improving the load bearing capacity of a sub-grade to support pavements and foundations.
Soil Stabilization can be utilized on roadways, parking areas, site development projects, airports and many other situations where sub-soils are not suitable for construction. Stabilization can be used to treat a wide range of sub-grade materials, varying from expansive clays to granular materials. This process is accomplished using a wide variety of additives, including lime, fly-ash, and Portland cement. Other material byproducts used in Stabilization include lime-kiln dust (LKD) and cement-kiln dust (CKD).
Unlike Cold In-Place Asphalt Recycling, Full-Depth Reclamation utilizes the full depth of the pavement, aggregate base and, in some cases, the soil or sub-base below. Using Full Depth Reclamation, roads that have cracked and deteriorated as a result of poor substructure are reconstructed and strengthened utilizing a flexible alternative to reconstruction or major base repair processes. Full Depth Reclamation is the perfect solution for giving new life to roads that have cracked and deteriorated as a result of poor sub-structure.
Soil Drying involves mixing quicklime (hot lime), Calciment or Lime Kiln Dust into existing soils in order to chemically and permanently alter existing soils by reducing moisture content. The use of lime can modify almost all fine-grained soils to some extent, but clay soils of moderate to high plasticity undergo the most dramatic transformation. The clay surface minerology is altered due to the introduction of calcium cations supplied by the hydrated lime. The resulting soils show a reduction in plasticity and swelling, reduction in optimum moisture, and improved stability.
All drying agents will create heat when mixed into saturated soils as they combine with existing moisture. Soil drying allows construction operations to continue year-round and minimizes lost construction days due to muddy and unsafe conditions. Soils can be dried and placed in fill areas in multiple lifts allowing the use of existing, on-site soils without removing and importing materials.

WORKING IN CHANGING SEASONS
Working outside sure has its benefits when the weather is nice, and the sun is shining. As the seasons change, so does the weather, and sometimes it happens fast. Everyday E J Breneman’s crews are enduring what mother nature can throw at them. One minute its sunrise and clear skies, the next the snow’s flying. Every day won’t be fair and sunny, but if it gets too bad, we can always work inside. When the weather wreaks havoc at your site, let E J Breneman help you weather the storm and get you high and dry.
