Tervita opens TRD waste management facility for oil and gas companies in Barnett Shale

Greentech Lead America: Tervita Corporation, a North
American environmental and energy services company, has opened a new waste
facility to its Vortex site, north of Alvarado, Texas, to provide fluid waste
management solutions to oil and gas companies in the Barnett Shale.

The treatment, recovery and disposal (TRD) facility
combines a new TRD with the existing salt water disposal
well and engineered landfill at Vortex, Tervita. The facility is
designed to minimize oil and gas industry’s overall waste
processing costs by reducing travel distances between drilling and waste

“Oil and gas companies in the Barnett Shale are
looking for environmentally sustainable ways to maintain the drilling activity
and manage the waste produced at their sites,” said Phil Vogel, president,
Tervita U.S.

“Vortex is a high-volume, state-of-the-art
facility that will become a premier center for waste processing in the Barnett
Shale,” Vogel added. “Vortex is designed to minimize the impact to the
community while providing clients with the most cost-effective and
environmental-friendly way to manage waste.”

The Vortex facility is strategically located close to oil
and gas operations. This location allows for a significant reduction of traffic
on Highway 67, throughout north Texas, and enables customers to improve safety
while minimizing traffic, road wear and greenhouse gas emissions.

The Vortex TRD will employ up to 20 workers
from the region and its operational investments will contribute to the
community each year.

“Our environmental services and facilities not only
play a vital role in the oil and gas industry but also help ensure a robust
local economy,” Vogel said.

Tervita TRD facilities are specially designed, built and
licensed to treat and dispose of oilfield waste.  Oilfield waste in
the form of mixed fluids and solids is transported by truck from a well site to
a TRD.
