Goodnight Midstream LLC unveiled a “significant expansion” of its Eagle Ford Shale operations on Nov. 20, including the rebranding of Wyatt Water Solutions LLC under the Dallas-based company.
Goodnight began operating in the Eagle Ford Shale in 2017 when it acquired Wyatt Water.
On Nov. 20, Goodnight said it had completed the integration and rebranding of Wyatt Water under the Goodnight Midstream corporate umbrella. The company has also begun construction of an additional injection facility in DeWitt County, Texas.
Eric Leuenberger, Wyatt Water’s founder, played a vital role in leading the system expansion and rebrand and will remain with the company as the business development lead for South Texas.
“We are extremely appreciative of Eric and the Wyatt Water team for successfully building the business over the last two years, and are confident that now is the right time to fully integrate our South Texas operations with our facilities in North Dakota and the Permian Basin,” Goodnight Midstream COO Rich Rehm said in a statement.
In October, Tailwater Capital LLC committed over $500 million of growth capital to support Goodnight’s expansion of services. Tailwater, an energy-focused private equity firm based in Dallas, has been an investor in the company since 2016.
The additional saltwater disposal facility, named Rooster, will be located south of Yorktown, Texas, and will serve both piped and trucked volumes. The Rooster facility is expected to expand Goodnight’s Eagle Ford operations to include three saltwater disposal facilities and 40 miles of pipeline in DeWitt and Atascosa counties, Texas.
Including the expansion, Goodnight Midstream will operate over 500 miles of oilfield wastewater pipelines and 58 saltwater disposal wells in the Williston, Midland and Delaware basins and the Eagle Ford Shale.
