GreenHunter Energy Plans Commercial Water Facility in Wilson County

GreenHunter Energy has leased acreage and plans to build a commercial water facility in Wilson County, TX. The facility will house at least one disposal well, a frack tank yard, and a treatment plant for produced water, frack water, and drilling muds. Now, if we can just get some rain, so there is water to treat......

GreenHunter Water, has executed a long-term agreement to lease approximately five acres of surface and mineral rights in the Eagle Ford Shale region of South Texas where it will develop a new commercial service facility.

This lease and development project will establish GreenHunter Water's presence in and around Wilson County, Texas. The highly active Eagle Ford Shale drilling in South Texas extends predominantly throughout fourteen counties to the north-east and south-west of the facility's location. The planned use for this location includes one or more salt water disposal wells, a treatment plant for oilfield produced water, frac water and drilling mud and a frac tank lay-down yard. The leased property is strategically located in a high drilling activity region with approximately 90 exploration and production drilling rigs currently active in the immediate area.

This location is the first of multiple planned locations for GreenHunter Water in the Eagle Ford Shale and is a direct response to a request from a number of operators active in the region to provide a "Total Water Management Solution."
