Petro Waste Landfills Now In Major Permian Quadrants, San Antonio Company Says

July 3, 2018


With the opening of two new landfills, Petro Waste Environmental LP says it now has facilities in all four major quadrants of the Permian Basin.

It’s new Deep Six Landfill is located on a 212-acre tract in Reeves County, Texas, 10 miles south of the city of Pecos.

The San Antonio company says it accepts oil- and water-based mud, oil- and water-based drill cuttings,  contaminated soil and RCRA-exempt non-hazardous exploration and production (E&P) waste, along with  providing washouts and other services.

Deep Six is co-owned with Trinity Environmental Services I LLC, through Guggenheim Partners.

And the Big Lake Landfill is located on a 245-acre tract on Highway 137 in Reagan County, about 12 miles north of Big Lake.

These recently opened facilities are in addition to the Orla Landfill, which opened in April and is also now part of the joint venture with Trinity, and a Howard County facility located between Stanton and Big Spring, which opened in September of 2017.

Petro Waste says it has plans to open similar petro-waste facilities in the Eagle Ford.

The company notes that increased public awareness of petro-waste will likely lead to more stringent government regulations, and the company is preparing its facilities and training personnel accordingly.

Petro Waste’s equity sponsor is Tailwater Capital.
