Issue #33 | Mapping Goodnight

Oilfield Water Weekly

Wednesday November 20, 2019

There is news out this morning from Goodnight Midstream. The water midstream firm is expanding in the Eagle Ford and has fully integrated Wyatt Water, which they acquired in 2017.

The fact that Goodnight is building “Rooster” (a new SWD facility in DeWitt County in the Eagle Ford) got us thinking this morning about the company’s growing, 3-basin footprint.

Upon the completion of Rooster, Goodnight will operate 58 SWDs and over 500 miles of produced water pipe in the Permian (both Delaware and Midland), the Bakken, and the Eagle Ford.

So we whipped together this interactive Google map for Oilfield Water Connection readers, putting all of the company’s SWD facilities across their three geo-markets on one map.

The map doesn’t show the new Rooster facility in South Texas yet, but it’s probably safe to assume that Rooster’s location is just a bit south of the Yorktown pin on our map. Zooming in on particular areas (like the Delaware Basin) will give you a sense of Goodnight’s local footprint shape and concentration as well as the positions of their facilities by name.

Before getting to today’s news digest (where there is a ton of news), we wanted to take minute to recognize Mustang Extreme Environmental Services. This leading environmental solutions company is a highly respected brand in oilfield water, and they’ve signed up to support our May 2020 conference as a Silver Sponsor PLUS Lanyard Sponsor. We can’t thank the Mustang team enough for helping to make Oilfield Water Connection events possible (they have been on board with every event we’ve hosted so far). Please be on the look out for their team at our next big event and tell them hi for us when you see them out in the field!

And now, here is your oilfield water business news digest for the past seven days…
