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.

HOUSTON (Bloomberg) — Chevron is abandoning its $33 billion offer for Anadarko Petroleum, the culmination of a month-long bidding war in which Occidental Petroleum Corp. prevailed over a rival five times its size.
The most ambitious foray of Chevron CEO Mike Wirth’s tenure ended Thursday after the world’s third-largest oil explorer by market value elected not to sweeten an offer that fell out of favor with Anadarko directors. Chevron said it will collect a $1 billion termination fee and plans to increase its share buybacks by 25%.
Anadarko’s board embraced the Occidental proposal as superior on May 6, giving Chevron up to four days to come back with a revised offer. Anadarko was looking for Chevron to match or exceed Occidental’s proposal, people familiar with the matter said Wednesday. However, Chevron indicated that topping its rival’s offer was too risky.

Occidental Petroleum Corp. Chief Executive Officer Vicki Hollub is on the cusp of winning a David versus Goliath bidding war that has captivated the oil industry.
After making a series of approaches to rival Anadarko Petroleum Corp. about a merger over almost two years, Hollub was outflanked last month when the company embraced a takeover offer from Chevron Corp., despite it being considerably lower than her $38 billion bid.
The University of Alabama-trained engineer didn’t back down. In a series of bold and creative moves that included securing a $10 billion investment from Warren Buffett, Hollub, 59, is back in pole position in the battle for Anadarko. In gaining the stamp of approval from Anadarko’s board on Monday, she has boxed Mike Wirth, her counterpart at Chevron, into a corner with the uncomfortable choice of tarnishing his reputation for financial conservatism or conceding defeat.

CHICAGO and HOUSTON (Bloomberg) — Occidental Petroleum Corp.’s bombshell investment from Warren Buffett is the culmination of almost two years of on-and-off-again wrangling with Anadarko Petroleum Corp. — a saga that’s, so far, seen the company slip through its fingers several times.
With Buffett in its corner and a higher bid on the table, Occidental finally seems to have the upper hand over Chevron Corp.’s lower, but already agreed on, offer. Anadarko’s board has decided to start talking to Occidental again, and said that its bid could result in a superior proposal.
Occidental’s engagement with Anadarko officially brings the two Texas-based explorers back to the negotiating table again after at least four separate rounds of communication since late 2017, according to people familiar with the matter, who asked not to be identified as the details of the discussions aren’t public. As recently as December, an informal check-in by Occidental had met with a negative response from its potential target: We’re not ready.
Just two months later, Chevron entered the fray and started talking to Anadarko, the people said. It was enough to pique Occidental’s interest, and by March 23 the company had made a $76-per-share offer — including $19 in cash, the people said. Representatives from Anadarko, Chevron and Occidental declined to comment on the talks. Read more…
