Our priority is to have the best safety practices in our facilities. We focus on accident prevention, accident response and process improvement to continuously reduce the impact of the workplace and extend the time between incidents.

Environmental Stewardship

Black Bison provides processes to help clients become leaders in environmental stewardship. Our team of engineers, chemists and geologists can evaluate the water produced from any play and determine what can be done with the produced water within the spectrum of beneficial use, reuse and ultimately safe disposal. In cases where no other possibility currently exists for economic reuse, Black Bison provides independent third-party verification to explore all possible solutions. The foundation of environmental stewardship is environmental incident minimization. We strive zero incidents but are realistic in knowing that the best way to operate is two-fold: to constantly work not to have an incident and to have a plan to respond quickly and effectively when one does occur.

Economic Benefit

Capital and Human Resources With the current undersupply of quality operators and SWD wells in the Bakken region in North Dakota, oil producers and other non-water disposal companies are forced to drill their own SWD wells instead of focusing all of their resources in fracturing and drilling. Outsourcing wastewater management and water disposal will increase their capital and human resources so that producers can more effectively extract oil. Best Use of Capital In shale plays where infrastructure is not able to support current development, E&P companies become the default source of human and economic resources. This is exemplified in the Bakken and Rocky Mountains in the number of companies that have had to divert capital to support their business with outside services such as water disposal and well completion. This leads to inefficient use of capital by the E&P and governs the returns the company can provide View our full list of solutions.
