Milestone opens new oilfield waste facility to serve the Midland Basin

Milestone Environmental Services has opened its state-of-the-art facility to serve Permian customers in the Midland Basin. The location, 25 miles south of Midland on State Highway 349, is conveniently situated on 20 acres in the heart of the southern Midland Basin drilling activity.

At this new site, Milestone will primarily accept drilling waste streams, including water based mud and oil based mud, along with some completion and production waste. The facility started receiving shipments from customers in November and held a grand opening on December 7.

“Utilizing the South Midland facility, our E&P customers are seeing a dramatic improvement in their efficiency and reduction in transportation costs,” said Regional Sales Manager Doug Shanks. “Our location near Midkiff is in close proximity to a great number of rigs giving our customers the advantage of environmentally-responsible waste management nearby. This facility was also designed to provide efficient full-service washouts for trucks and frac tanks with quick turnaround times.”
