The Big Spring facility, Milestone Environmental Services’ eighth slurry injection facility in Texas and fifth in the Permian Basin, is now open.

Milestone, an oilfield waste disposal services provider based in Houston, announced the opening of its newest facility in the Permian Basin on Dec. 17. The Big Spring slurry injection facility, located in Howard County, Texas, accepts drilling, completion and production waste streams plus provides full-service truck washouts and frac tank washouts for operators in the northern Midland Basin.

Big Spring is the second of three facilities in Milestone’s previously announced 2019 construction plan, and is the continuation of a multiyear infrastructure development plan to build the largest, most environmentally conscious oilfield waste disposal network in the Permian Basin. The opening of Milestone’s Big Spring facility also comes on the heels of a successful opening of its first landfill facility in Orla, Texas, earlier this month.

“Delivering on our promise, Milestone is committed to positioning our facilities nearby our customers in order to provide them with a cost-efficient and environmentally responsible option for their oilfield waste disposal needs,” Gabriel Rio, president and CEO of Milestone, said in a statement. “Our newest facility in Big Spring is conveniently located in close proximity to rig sites in the northern Midland Basin, addressing the demand for waste disposal solutions in this high-producing area.”

Milestone also operates oilfield waste disposal locations in the Eagle Ford and Haynesville shale plays.
