ATHENS, TX–(Nov. 8, 2018)–Reliable One Resources, Inc., a provider of innovative water disposal and water recycling services, today announced the purchase of a controlling interest in BBU Services, Inc., B&S Leasing, LLC, and Mountain States Environmental, LLC, which together provide comprehensive trucking services – including water hauling, roll-off services, vacuum trucks, containment, and emergency spill response – to oil and natural gas operators in the Marcellus and Utica Shale regions.
These acquisitions, coupled with the recent purchase of an operating water disposal and injection facility in Athens County, Ohio, further Reliable One’s mission to collect and treat produced and flowback water for oil and gas operators throughout the United States.
Like the disposal well facility, the trucking companies have current contracts with area oil and gas producers. Securing this new water supply adds to the amount of produced and flowback water committed to Reliable One. With an operating history dating back to 1988, the purchased companies’ staff is well-trained to handle the complex and evolving demands of the oil and gas field industry, specifically as it relates to wastewater hauling.
Reliable One’s broader strategy is to develop regional water recycling facilities throughout the United States to serve oil and gas operators, who have become increasingly desperate for cost-effective wastewater hauling and disposal services. Reliable One’s initial acquisitions have secured trucking assets, disposal capabilities and, most importantly, a supply of produced and flowback water that can be treated using the company’s water recycling services.
“Trucking is a critical element in our plans to serve the oil and gas industry in the Marcellus region, since there is an increasing demand for both hauling and water disposal services,” said Kenneth Wiedrich, President of Reliable One Resources, Inc. “We have entered into agreements to acquire additional trucking companies, and these agreements are expected to be finalized by first quarter of 2019.”
