Waste Connections Inc.’s exploration and production (E&P) waste unit has built a waste treatment and disposal facility near Stanton, Texas.
R360 Environmental Solutions LLC has expanded its fresh water sale depot through the facility, which is situated to serve the Permian Basin’s Wolfberry trend, according to a news release from the subsidiary of The Woodlands, Texas-based Waste Connections.
The 175-acre Wishbone Facility, located 20 miles east of Midland, will serve as a full-service oilfield waste processing center that will manage drill cuttings/muds, contaminated soils, production/tank sludges, produced and flowback/frac waters. The facility features a drill cuttings solidification plant, mechanical separation technology for drilling fluids, a multi-bay truck washout and an E&P landfill.
R360 plans to drill an on-site saltwater disposal well.
“We’re taking the lead in making sure the nation’s oilfield waste infrastructure keeps pace with industry needs,” said Gary Wallace, executive vice president of R360.
The company will continue to add strategically located treatment and disposal facilities in conjunction with operator needs in the country’s most prolific basins.
