CLASS II SALTWATER DISPOSAL (SWD) FACILITY BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES
A Leader In Salt Water Disposal Systems
Hew-Tex Oil & Gas’s Managing Member, Peter Hewett, has been in the upstream side of the energy industry for more than four decades of crude oil producing operations involving the generating of oil and gas drilling prospects (exploration and production of hundreds of oil and gas wells) both domestic onshore and offshore USA. Thus, Hew-Tex Oil & Gas (“HTOG”) has extensive knowledge and experience in producing crude oil and dealing with the associated formation saltwater produced by nearly every crude oil well.
It was a natural shift into the saltwater disposal business by Mr. Hewett and the Hew-Tex Oil & Gas management team early in 2017 after the discovery (late 2016) in the Permian Basin of more than 20 billion barrels of proven oil reserves and 16 trillion cubic feet of natural gas reserves that were found through the use of new horizontal drilling extraction techniques and 3-D seismic technology. The niche that Mr. Hewett decided to specialize in was the result of a hands-on awareness that the operators and producers drilling the hundreds of oil wells, needed to find a way to dispose of the significant volume of saltwater that is produced along with the crude oil in the Permian Basin. The Permian Basin is comprised of the Delaware Basin on the west, the Central Basin Platform in the middle, and the Midland Basin to the east. Today, there are currently as many active drilling rigs in the Permian Basin as there are combined throughout the balance of the entire USA, both onshore and offshore. Several thousand wells are planned to be drilled by companies like ExxonMobil, Occidental Petroleum, Chevron, Apache Corp., Shell Oil Western, Anadarko E&P, EOG Resources, Cimarex Energy, Energen Resources, Endeavor Energy, Matador Production and many other independents.
Today, the average Permian Basin oil well initially produces 650 barrels of oil per day will also produce and estimated 2,000 barrels of formation saltwater per day. This ratio of 3 barrels of saltwater per 1 barrel of crude oil creates a huge problem for operators and producers. There is a substantial need for approved saltwater disposal well facilities to inject this saltwater as well as to clean and wash the tanker and vacuum trucks and frac tanks that is required under the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) by statutory law of the Texas Water Code and enforced by the Texas Railroad Commission. If an operator has no place to dispose of the saltwater, it has no choice but to shut-in the well.
Hew-Tex Oil & Gas, believes the commercial saltwater disposal business in the West Texas Permian Basin area will continue to be a very lucrative business opportunity for years to come. The economics are simple…spend the least amount of capital to build a state-of-the-art disposal facility that has the potential to generate significant cash flow 24/7. This website will discuss in subsequent sections all of the relevant areas pertaining to saltwater disposal business opportunities.
Shell is said to have bid, with partner Blackstone Group LP, on a portfolio of U.S. shale assets BHP Billiton Ltd. wants to sell for about $10 billion. If it wins, the Anglo-Dutch oil major could exceed its goal of doubling its American onshore output, according to JPMorgan Chase & Co.
That would boost the unit’s free cash flow — currently on track to grow by $2 billion by 2025 — and turn around a shale portfolio that is currently “mid-lower ranked,” analysts from the bank including Christyan Malek said in a report.
At the heart of Shell’s shale problem has been the lack of a coherent strategy, according to the report. It has irregularly acquired various bits of U.S. acreage, including a large stake in the low-cost and highly desirable Permian.
The Permian Basin in Texas and New Mexico will soon become the third-biggest oil producing region in the world: IHS Markit
- Output from the Permian basin is poised to double between 2017 and 2023, according to IHS Markit.
- At 5.4 million barrels per day, Permian production would surpass output from all other producer nation’s except Saudi Arabia and Russia.
- IHS Markit believes the jump in output will require more than $300 billion in investment.
Today, the Permian basin in Texas and New Mexico is the nation’s biggest shale oil producing region. But in just a few years, drillers could be pumping enough Permian crude to outmatch every nation in the world except Russia and Saudi Arabia.
