Energy and Water News: Heckmann (NYSE:HEK) Begins Fresh Water Delivery by Pipeline in the Haynesville Shale Area

Energy and Water News: Heckmann (NYSE:HEK) Begins Fresh Water Delivery by Pipeline in the Haynesville Shale Area


Point Roberts, WA- December 14, 2011 – Investorideas.com, a leader in sector research including water stocks and energy stocks publishes the following news today from Heckmann (NYSE:HEK), a services-based company focused on total water solutions for shale or "unconventional" oil and gas exploration.

Heckmann Corporation (NYSE:HEK) today announced that it has begun transporting water through its fresh water pipeline in the Haynesville Shale area. The fresh water, repurposed PVC pipeline will be 40 miles long when fully commissioned, representing the largest fresh water pipeline system in the Haynesville Shale area. Heckmann expects the fresh water pipeline to be fully operational in 2012 with capacity to move up to 60,000 barrels per day. The initial orders for water from the fresh water pipeline are projected to result in the delivery of approximately 16,000 barrels per day beginning in mid-December of 2011.

Heckmann Water Resources' (HWR) fresh water pipeline will initially transport water from HWR's Red River water supply and ultimately be able to deliver water from both the Red River and the Sabine River. HWR has several strategically located reservoirs along the pipeline to provide large quantities of fresh water to meet the peak frac water requirements of HWR customers. The combination of the 40-mile pipeline with multiple sources of fresh water, strategically placed reservoirs, and HWR's ability to move water to customer locations with temporary transmission lines or trucks, provides a comprehensive, cost effective and reliable solution for HWR customers' frac water needs in the Haynesville Shale area.

"Our fresh water pipeline enhances the efficiency and reliability of our total water solutions for HWR customers in the Haynesville Shale area," said Richard J. Heckmann, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Heckmann Corporation. "Having secured fresh water sources and operating a fresh water pipeline in the Haynesville Shale area augments the full range of HWR water services and enables us to provide our customers with even more competitively priced fresh water solutions. Our pipeline is strategically located where we expect continued development and increased flow as new wells are completed. In the first half of 2012, we plan to complete the extension and expansion of our adjacent produced water pipeline, and as we bring both pipelines into service we will be able to give our customers a full service option of fresh water, storage, temporary piping, and produced water transfer through either trucks or pipes, to final disposal, recycle, or treatment."

On average, 6.3 million gallons of fresh water are needed for each drilled frac well in the Haynesville Shale area. The water returns to the surface over time, with approximately 20% returning as flowback water within the first two to three weeks after the fracking has commenced, and the remaining water is generally returned to the surface as produced (salt) water over the life of the well, which can be up to 30 years. As a total water solutions provider, HWR is equipped to manage all of the diverse water needs throughout this cycle including, water delivery and disposal, trucking, fluids handling, treatment and temporary and permanent pipeline facilities, as well as site preparation, water pit excavation and remediation.

Clean Energy and Water Series; Q&A Interview with Jud Hill, Managing Director of NGP Global Adaptation Partners

Point Roberts, WA - December 5, 2011 - Investorideas.com, a leader in sector research including water stocks and energy stocks issues a Q&A interview with Jud Hill, Managing Director of NGP Global Adaptation Partners, L.P. (www.ngpgap.com). NGP Global Adaptation Partners currently invests in water resources and services and food and agriculture.
Q: Investorideas.com
Jud, your recently spoke and acted as a moderator at the Water 2.0 Investment Summit Toronto, Canada on November 9, 2011. The theme for your discussion was Resource Recovery - Poised for Investment; can you give us some key points you walked away with?
A: Jud Hill, Managing Director of NGP Global Adaptation Partners, L.P.
Simply said, water that has historically been labeled "waste water" is a misnomer. Many wastewater volumes contain numerous constituents that now are cost effectively recovered,. These compounds include nitrogen , phosphates and trace elements which can be recovered and reused.. Not only can these compounds be reused, removing them from the water prior to discharge can dramatically reduce environmental harm in the receiving streams. Such as eutrophication (explosion of plant growth) as well as anoxia or dead zones which occurs when these plants dye and consume all the available oxygen in the water killing fish and other aquatic life. This is particularly relevant regarding areas called CAFOS, centralizes animal feeding operations, such as those operated by large chicken and pork producers.
Also with the price of energy continuing to rise, the sludge or biological byproducts from waste water treatment operations has become a very valuable resource. In many cases, the inherent btu values of these sludges can be directly converted to energy (biogas) or further processed into usable fertilizers.
In general, it is important to note that this resource recovery sector is not waiting for technology innovation to catch up (most are proven and ready to go) it is more a function that the demand drivers caused by appropriate regulation and the economic returns garnered by recovering these valued commodities
Q: Investorideas.com
You had told me recently your firm was looking at investment in companies in frac water treatment. Can you tell us the kind of companies and technologies you are seeing?
A: Jud Hill, Managing Director of NGP Global Adaptation Partners, L.P.
The frac water sourcing/treatment/recycle and disposal services sector is undergoing explosive growth throughout the United States and Canada. That said every gas or oil shale formation has different water issues. For example, sourcing fresh frac water is becoming a challenge in the Southwest such as in the Eagle Ford formation with salt water ejection wells which are used for final disposal of used frac waters are rather prolific...whereas in the Northeast such as in the Marcellus formation, fresh water is readily available, however due to different geology, disposal thru deep salt water injection wells is not feasible.
With such significant volumes of water now being utilized.(estimated 5 million gallons per frac) many operators are beginning to deploy numerous treatment and recycling solutions to reuse frac waters for follow on frac drilling operations. Numerous technologies or treatment trains are being deployed ranging from electro coagulation, reverse osmosis, ozonation, dissolved air flotation and crystallization. Simply said there is no "silver bullet" to solve the treatment issue. The successful water services providers are finding that recognizing the range of water qualities they are seeing in the field that more of a "tool box" approach is necessary…sing the right set of treatment solutions that are directly applicable to a specific frac water quality. Frac water can vary greatly as a function of total dissolved solids (TDS), biological and trace metal constituents. In essence the successful service providers will be those that understand that price, efficacy and reliability will be the determining metrics for their drilling customers.
These solutions may also change depending on the near term treatment of "flow back" water which is generated while the well is being developed vs. the longer, multi year, water production, "produced water" that flows during the life of the well.
There will also be participates in the frac water value chain that will focus on water movement logistics (trucking and or pipelines), both onsite and offsite (regional) frac water treatment operations as well as final disposal options thru deep salt water injection wells.
Q: Investorideas.com
Can you give investors some of the publicly traded stocks in this space?
A: Jud Hill, Managing Director of NGP Global Adaptation Partners, L.P.
There are very few public companies that have a particular focus in the frac water treatment area. A few example public micro cap companies include, Green Hunter, Abtech and Sionex. Some of the larger players that participate in the frac water treatment space include, GE, Veolia, Halliburton, Heckman Water and Danaher
Q: Investorideas.com
Some of the commentary on this growing sector compares the demand to the gold rush of the water industry. Is it all regulatory driven or is the energy industry looking for water treatment solutions based on their own environmental agendas?
A: Jud Hill, Managing Director of NGP Global Adaptation Partners, L.P
Ever evolving regulations will be a key underpinning for the viability of the water industry, just has it has been since the passage of the Clean Water Act in the 1970s. Generally speaking, regulations always continue to be more stringent. Regarding the energy industry, I think it's fair to say that essentially all responsible energy companies are being proactive in applying effective water management solutions. In most cases energy companies find that being a good steward of the environment is also good economics. For example, establishing effective ways to recycle frac water is in most cases a lot cheaper than "hauling in" and hauling out" large volumes of water and it is also better for the environment let alone reduced wear and tear on public roads…many of which are rural.
A recent example of increasing regulation was initiated by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Resources (PADER). The PADER recently ruled that frac water can no longer be discharged to public owned treatment operations (POTW's) causing all Pennsylvania frac water to be treated/recycled on site or trucked to Ohio for deep well injection…a much more expensive proposition.
Q: Investorideas.com
What do you see as the main points to pay attention to in the water sector for 2012?
A : Jud Hill, Managing Director of NGP Global Adaptation Partners, L.P.
I think we will continue to see a consistent move forward recognizing that water is no longer a "free good" but a valued commodity. Albeit the current "price" of water to all consumers is still extremely cheap relative to its value, we will continue to see the price of water increase as appropriate and proven solutions are more broadly implemented to recycle and reuse water.
It's always useful to remember the old quote from Ben Franklin, "We will know the value of water when the well runs dry"

Frac Water Treatment : Q&A Interview with GreenHunter Water LLC (AMEX:GRH)

Point Roberts, WA - November 23, 2011 - Investorideas.com, a leader in sector research including water stocks and energy stocks issues a recent Q&A interview with GreenHunter Water LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of GreenHunter Energy, Inc (AMEX: GRH). Jonathan D. Hoopes, President & COO discusses how their products and services will play a key role in providing water, environmental and regulatory solutions for shale producers.
Q: Investorideas.com
GreenHunter Water, LLC, your wholly owned subsidiary, recently announced a contract for the Eagle Ford Shale drilling area. Can you tell us the scope of the contract and the direct use for your technology?
A: Jonathan D. Hoopes; President & COO
This contract is a long term agreement to provide frac tanks and other equipment typically rented for hydraulic fracturing operations. Due to difficulties in obtaining equipment when it is needed, the operator desired to enter into a long term contract to secure the items that are necessary to ensure smooth logistics and operational efficiency and prevent delays in their drilling program.
Q: Investorideas.com
With increasing regulation and pressure for the oil and gas industry to deal with frac water, how do you see your company rolling out your technology?
A: Jonathan D. Hoopes; President & COO
We anticipate an increase in demand for GreenHunter Water's Total Water Management Solutions™ as the perceived and real need to reuse water increases. The technologies that we deploy have been in a development phase for many years and there are several viable technology platforms that we have identified for use with multiple drilling areas.
Q: Investorideas.com
What differentiates your technology in the marketplace?
A: Jonathan D. Hoopes; President & COO
GreenHunter Water's water treatment technology is designed to be highly adaptable. Because the oilfield is an industry with many unforeseen variables, adaptability is a key ingredient for success. For example, flowback from a single shale play can be, and often is, strikingly different from well to well and even a single producer may be faced with highly divergent needs. In cases where the water is similar, logistical needs may differ due to geography, limitations in infrastructure, labor shortages and urgent time tables.
Accordingly, GreenHunter Water uses a technology-agnostic approach to oilfield water treatment. When we provide our Frac-Cycle™ water treatment service, we do so in a consultative and collaborative approach with our clients after gaining an understanding of their specific needs and objectives.
Q: Investorideas.com
As GreenHunter Water builds out its salt water disposal and water treatment technologies, what other applications do you see moving forward?
A: Jonathan D. Hoopes; President & COO
We are working with E&P (exploration and production) companies on multiple RFPs (requests for proposals). These include improved logistics, hauling and water transfer contracts, temporary modular storage and frac tank rental agreements, RAMCAT™ (Remote Access Monitoring and Compliance Asset Tracking) cradle-to-grave tracking solutions, condensate drip gas reclamation and marketing and turnkey salt water disposal management agreements. We believe our multi-pronged approach is the right way to penetrate the market and we expect to see significant business growth in 2012.
GreenHunter Water LLC ( AMEX:GRH) is a wholly owned subsidiary of GreenHunter Energy, Inc. which provides Total Water Management Solutions(TM) in the oilfield. An understanding that there is no single solution to E&P fluids management shapes GreenHunter's technology-agnostic approach to services. In addition to licensing of and joint ventures with manufacturers of mobile water treatment systems, GreenHunter Water is expanding capacity of salt water disposal, temporary above-ground storage, hauling and fresh water logistics services - including 21st Century tracking technologies that allow Shale producers to optimize the efficiency of their water resource management and planning while complying with emerging regulations.

Frac Water Treatment: Water Stocks to Watch: (OTCBB:ABHD), (OTCBB:ESPH), (GRH), (OTCBB:WSCE)

Point Roberts, WA - November 22, 2011 � Investorideas.com, a leader in sector research including water stocks and energy stocks issues a snapshot of four water stocks with technologies that are being used in the energy sector for remediation of produced and or frac water.
As new rules and regulations governing the oil and gas industry are introduced , the treatment of frac water and produced water create a problem for the energy industry but a booming business opportunity for the water companies with technologies that provide solutions .
As the Wall Street Journal recently stated, "The growing volume of dirty water produced in shale-gas drilling has triggered a gold rush among water-treatment companies."
AbTech Holdings, Inc.(OTCBB: ABHD) announced last week the successful completion of field testing of its Smart Sponge® Mixed Media Contactor ("Contactor") to treat produced water at a Wyoming natural gas exploration and production site. The AbTech Contactors were designed to remove the hydrocarbons present in the produced water in order to protect and thereby substantially increase the useful life of downstream treatment equipment and technologies including a reverse osmosis system. The Smart Sponge Mixed Media Contactors removed 99.99% of the free oil and dissolved phase hydrocarbons (BTEX). Field testing and data collection was done under rigorous conditions throughout the fall of 2011.
Ecosphere Technologies, Inc (OTCBB:ESPH) announced that its majority-owned subsidiary, Ecosphere Energy Services, LLC has treated approximately 1.095 billion gallons of frac water since 2008 for major energy exploration and production companies to eliminate chemicals and preserve vital water resources.
GreenHunter Water, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of GreenHunter Energy, Inc. (NYSE Amex: GRH), announced earlier this month that it has secured a significant new order to provide equipment rental and services which include thirty (30) new frac storage tanks to an independent oil and gas operator active in the Eagle Ford Shale drilling region of South Texas. Delivery of the new frac tanks was completed approximately one week ago. The initial one year contract includes rental and management of multiple sized fluid tanks, including 500 BBL water storage tanks, manifolds and other services. This new customer is also exploring other business opportunities offered by GreenHunter's Total Water Management Solutions™. These include water treatment and reuse of "clean brine", RAMCAT™ remote access monitoring equipment, water hauling and commercial salt water disposal, and advanced logistics optimization.
Wescorp Energy Inc. (OTCBB:WSCE) is focused on applications for environmental remediation, metering and measurement, oil and gas field intelligence solutions, and solutions for unconventional oil and gas. The company's technology has been field tested for produced water but has frac water applications as well . H2Omaxx utilizes proprietary next generation aeration technology to clean and separate oil and solids from water. It has been proven to be safe, effective, economical and an environmentally-friendly process. Independent test results have shown the H20maxx technology will reduce the oil content in oil well produced water to less than 10 parts per million without the use of chemicals, filters or heat.

Wednesday's Water Stocks Trading: (NasdaqGM: CDZI), (NASDAQ:ERII), (NYSE: MLI), (NYSE: SJW)

Point Roberts, WA - November 3, 2011 – Investorideas.com, a leader in sector research including water stocks issues a trading snapshot for four leading water stocks trading up as of the close November 3rd.
Cadiz, Inc. (NasdaqGM: CDZI) closed up at $9.47, up 0.46 (5.11%). The Company reported October 20 th, that a multi-disciplinary panel of groundwater experts has found the Cadiz Valley Water Project can be operated on an environmentally sustainable basis to offer Southern Californians a significant water supply and storage option. The next day the stock rose 21.5 percent to $10.07.
The Cadiz Valley Water Conservation, Recovery and Storage Project is designed to capture and conserve thousands of acre-feet of native groundwater currently being lost to evaporation through an aquifer system beneath private property owned by Cadiz Inc. in eastern San Bernardino County, California. SMWD is serving as the lead agency of the CEQA review for the Project. The Project will maximize the beneficial use of groundwater currently lost to evaporation by 1) capturing the natural recharge of rain and snow that filters through the ground from the nearby mountains and 2) recovering groundwater that would otherwise continue on its down slope path and be lost to salt contamination and evaporation.
Energy Recovery Inc (NASDAQ:ERII) closed up at $3.15, up 0.14 (4.65%) on news.
The Company announced Wednesday that the Southern Seawater Alliance (SSWA) will expand the original Binningup facility in Western Australia with PX Pressure Exchanger™ (PX™) devices. By utilizing ERI's PX devices, the Southern Seawater Desalination Plant (SSDP) will virtually eliminate costly unplanned downtime and reduce the energy and costs required to produce an additional 140,000 m3/day (37 million gallons) of fresh water for a total new capacity of 300,000 m3/day of water (79.2 million gallons) for the greater Perth region.
Mueller Industries, Inc. (NYSE: MLI) closed up at $40.81, up 1.25 (3.16%) on just over 241,000 shares. The Company reported Third Quarter results last Tuesday. Mueller's net income in the third quarter was $10.5 million, or 27 cents per diluted share, on net sales of $585.8 million. This compares with net income of $18.9 million, or 50 cents per diluted share, on net sales of $507.2 million in the third quarter of 2010. The third quarter 2011 results were affected by the precipitous decline in copper prices, resulting in a pretax charge of $6.8 million (or approximately 12 cents per diluted share after tax). Without these charges, earnings would have been 39 cents per diluted share.
SJW Corporation (NYSE: SJW) closed up at $23.49, up 0.85 (3.75%). Last week the Company reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2011. Operating revenue was $73.9 million in the quarter compared to $70.3 million in 2010. The $3.6 million increase in revenue reflects cumulative rate increases of $4.4 million, $221,000 in new customers, partially offset by lower customer usage (a $1.4 million impact), and $353,000 in higher revenue from real estate operations.

Water Energy Stocks Alert: Hong Kong Water Supplies Department Chooses Itron's (NASDAQ:ITRI) Water Metering Technology

October 28, 2011 - Investorideas.com, a leader in sector research for independent investors including water stocks reports on water metering news issued today by Itron, Inc (NASDAQ:ITRI). The stock is trading at $37.40, up 0.21 (0.56%) 11:41AM EDT, with a morning high of $37.58.
Itron, Inc. (NASDAQ:ITRI) announced today that it will provide Hong Kong Water Supplies Department (WSD) with 400,000 highly accurate, residential water meters over a period of two years beginning in late 2011. The project is building on Hong Kong WSD's water conservation objectives.
As an island, Hong Kong faces limited water reserves and relies primarily on Dongjiang in Guangdong, a province in Southern China, for its water supply. With supply and storage constraints, a highly populated service territory, and increasing water demand, Hong Kong WSD needs to address these challenges by closely monitoring and managing its water resources.
One of the primary ways for Hong Kong WSD to achieve this effectively is to raise customer awareness of the value of water in effort to lower usage of this precious natural resource. Itron is helping Hong Kong WSD address these issues by delivering 400,000 volumetric water meters that provide reliable measurement and accurate invoices for end-consumers.
"This contract with Hong Kong WSD directly aligns with our vision to deliver water resource management solutions tailored to the Asia-Pacific region,” said Marcel Regnier, Itron president and COO, Water. "We are already successfully helping water providers in Macao, Singapore, Vietnam and the Philippines better manage limited water supplies, and now, with our technology, the Hong Kong water department will achieve its conservation and consumer awareness goals.”
