NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Aqua Terra Water Management, L.P. (“Aqua Terra” or the “Company”) has announced the acquisition of two saltwater disposal facilities operated by Texas SWD Co, Inc and the acquisition of a permit for a salt water disposal facility from Coronado Minerals, LLC. Terms of the acquisitions were not disclosed.
The acquired facilities are located in the Midland Basin of west Texas in Reagan and Upton counties. Both facilities serve producers operating in the prolific Spraberry and Wolfcamp formations.
“The acquired facilities meet our high standards for best in class safety and service and will function as anchors for our newly established Permian region,” said Scott Perekslis, Managing Partner and co-founder of New York-based private investment firm Bregal Partners, which formed Aqua Terra in November 2013. “Over the next several months we will continue to devote corporate resources to augment our presence in west Texas.”
Mark Harris, CEO of Aqua Terra further commented “The presence of multiple stacked producing formations across the Permian Basin ensures that west Texas will continue to be the leading onshore oil producing region in the U.S. for quite some time. The water management needs in the Permian have grown dramatically over the past several years as producers are increasingly driving production growth via new unconventional formations.”
