The Railroad Commission of Texas issued a permit in April for a second oilfield waste landfill to be operated by Milestone Environmental Services, the company announced. The new landfill will be a 93-acre facility in Upton County accepting cuttings, contaminated soils and other RCRA-exempt waste solids. Milestone operates a slurry injection facility eight miles north of the proposed Upton landfill.
“The addition of the Upton landfill will allow us to accept the entire spectrum of oilfield wastes from customers in the Midland Basin,” said Gabriel Rio, Milestone president and CEO.
In March, Milestone was awarded a landfill permit for a new facility in Orla, Reeves County, Texas. The Orla landfill is to be co-located with the company’s existing slurry injection well serving operators in the Delaware Basin.
Landfill permits “are a continuation of Milestone’s expansion plans to develop an unrivaled network of landfill and slurry disposal facilities in the Permian,” said Rio.
The company also operates oilfield waste management facilities in the Eagle Ford and Haynesville Shale regions.
