Southwest Engineers engaged as major water management resource for oil and gas venture
Austin, TX – June 19, 2013 – Southwest Engineers Inc., a full-service civil and environmental engineering consulting firm, today announced it has signed an extensive agreement with Earthwater Resources Inc. for a major project on the Bakken Shale oil and gas zone in North Dakota. The project includes drilling and transporting water from a previously undiscovered, nontraditional, groundwater resource to multiple filling stations for the successful fracking of oil and gas wells in the region.
“In the middle of one of the largest oil booms the nation has ever seen, quick and timely solutions have never been more important for the success of a company in the oil and gas industry,” said John Littlefield, owner and president of Southwest Engineers. “Our firm’s deep knowledge of water infrastructure design and regulations allow us to quickly and efficiently transport water to fracking sites and filling stations to keep projects on schedule.”
The experienced Southwest Engineers team of civil and environmental engineers, design technicians and CAD operators are performing full, civil-site work design on an eight bay filling station for Earthwater Resources in the Bakken Shale play. This includes earthwork, grading, erosion control, wellhead and booster pump design, building and electrical, and the design of a eight plus mile pipeline with intermediate pump stations.
Looking to form a strong and sustainable engineering partnership for upcoming state and national projects, Earthwater Resources initially engaged Southwest Engineers for 2013 water extraction and transportation projects in Karnes County, Texas.
With 35 years’ experience in the water industry, Southwest Engineers provides innovative solutions to overcome the permitting, codes and requirements that can stall major projects. The company adheres to a strict due diligence process that minimizes risks, controls costs and accelerates development.
