Petro Waste Environmental, of San Antonio, in October announced construction of a new oilfield waste landfill in DeWitt County, the first facility the company will operate serving the Eagle Ford.

Located on 204 acres in Nordheim, Texas, the landfill will accept oil- and water-based mud, drill cuttings, contaminated soil and RCRA-exempt non-hazardous E&P waste materials, the company reports.

The new landfill “will enable us to provide the same level of service in the Eagle Ford that our customers have grown accustomed to in the Permian,” said George Wommack, founder and chief executive officer at Petro Waste.

The DeWitt County landfill is scheduled to open in January 2019. A second south-central Texas landfill is planned to open in McMullen County in the third quarter 2019, Petro Waste said. The company currently operates four oilfield waste landfills in the Permian.
