Omni Water Solutions Receives Statewide Mobile Water Treatment Permit in Texas

Texas Railroad Commission Permit Allows for Water Treatment Services in All Texas Shale Plays

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - Jan 7, 2013) - Omni Water Solutions, Inc., a provider of highly automated mobile water systems for water treatment and re-use, has received a statewide permit by the Railroad Commission of Texas (RRC) to operate commercial water recycling units in all Texas shale plays. The permit enables the company to deploy mobile water treatment services to the Permian and Eagle Ford shales for several large independent operators to use in commercial operations early this year.

"We received this permit after demonstrating to the Texas Railroad Commission our unique ability to effectively recycle a variety of flowback and produced waters from across the state, as well as our capacity to continuously monitor and control our output water quality," said Billy Roberts, Director of Research and Design for Omni Water Solutions. "Omni's ability to provide an audit trail of that quality provides assurances to both the operator and the RRC that our treated product is optimized for re-use in future well-completion activities."

Omni Water Solutions offers the HIPPO® platform for frac'ing operations. These mobile units come equipped with the company's patent-pending OctoZone™ technology, a real-time sense and respond automation system that enables oil and gas operators to treat and re-use produced water at a lower cost with more consistent results. After treatment through the platform, the water can be re-used in subsequent wells instead of lost to disposal.

"Oil and gas operators are choosing Omni because our mobile water treatment platforms can produce both fresh water and clean brine at prices that compete with transport and disposal fees," said Warren Sumner, CEO of Omni Water Solutions. "Obtaining this permit was a crucial step in rolling out our platforms and services for operators this year."
