Ute Tribal Authority in Utah Recommends Use of Catch-It™ by Oil Companies on Tribal Land

Share Article

R&C Products’ groundbreaking Catch-It™ oilfield safety product has won the official endorsement of the Uintah and Ouray Business Committee. The Committee is the governing body of the Ute Indian Tribe’s reservation in Northeastern Utah, the largest of America’s three Ute reservations.

The Catch-It™ oil safety device, designed and produced by R&C Products, has won the official recommendation of an authority that controls a large tract of oil-rich territory on which many prominent oil companies operate. Uintah and Ouray is the largest of Ute tribe’s three reservations. Located in Northeastern Utah, a state named after the Native American tribe, the governing body of the Uintah and Ouray is its Business Committee.

Just last month, that Committee, the highest tribal authority on its tribe-owned land, issued an official recommendation of R&C Products’ flagship invention, the Catch-It™. “Now therefore be it resolved,” the signed tribal statement reads, “by the Uintah and Ouray Business Committee to all oil companies operating on the Uintah and Ouray Reservation trust lands, we recommend the use of this product.”

Christa Kofford, who co-founded R&C Products with her husband Richard Kofford, is a member of the Ute tribe and lives in Northeastern Utah. However, that was not the sole factor behind the recommendation. As another portion of the tribal resolution indicates, the Catch-It™ product is already “…used by pumpers to minimize dripping, contamination and spillage on oil wells.” Consequently, the tribal leaders recognize the benefit of the widespread use of a product on its lands that “…will minimize environmental damage that will occur without its use.”

This is a noteworthy milestone for R&C Products. While the Catch-It has already earned plenty of accolades from oil field workers using the product and other industry stakeholders, an official recommendation from the Uintah and Ouray Business Committee is an endorsement of unprecedented significance. Moreover, the Committee is not only on record as recommending the Catch-It product but its promotion by R&C products among the major oil companies that drill on Ute tribal land in Northeastern Utah.

However, R&C Products is always seeking out new business relationships with oil companies, equipment distributors, and other stakeholders to further spread adoption of its breakthrough innovation. If you or your organization would like to reach out to the Koffords, you may reach them through their website, CatchItSafety.com (http://www.catchitsafety.com). As well, through that site, you can gain access to additional Catch-It™ materials – including photos and a brief demonstration video – and you may purchase the product directly through the site’s e-commerce portal.
