Milestone Environmental Services (Milestone), an industry leader in oil and gas waste management, has opened its state-of-the-art facility to serve Permian customers in the Midland Basin. The location, 25 miles south of Midland on State Highway 349, is conveniently situated on 20 acres in the heart of the southern Midland Basin drilling activity. At this new site, Milestone will primarily accept drilling waste streams, including water based mud and oil based mud, along with some completion and production waste. The facility started receiving shipments from customers in November and will have a grand opening on December 7.
“Utilizing the South Midland facility, our E&P customers are seeing a dramatic improvement in their efficiency and reduction in transportation costs. Our location near Midkiff is in close proximity to a great number of rigs giving our customers the advantage of environmentally-responsible waste management nearby,” said Regional Sales Manager Doug Shanks. “This facility was also designed to provide efficient full-service washouts for trucks and frac tanks with quick turnaround times.”
At Milestone, employees have access to competitive wages, affordable comprehensive benefits, and the chance to build a career. The company hired 18 additional employees to run and support the facility with plans to hire more in coming months. Milestone also advanced several employees from within the company because of the growth expected with the completion of the South Midland facility. Shannon Oliver is Operations Manager of South Midland. Doug Shanks is the Regional Sales Manager of the Permian Basin. Clifford Clinton was promoted to Operations Manager of the Pecos facility.
Commitment to the Community and Environment
Milestone is committed to being a good neighbor, environmental steward and corporate citizen. This commitment is woven into Milestone’s day-to-day business activities and regulatory compliance.
“We designed the South Midland facility to minimize the impact on the environment and the community. Because of our location, truck trip times and traffic will be reduced along the highways. Our long entrance road will avoid truck queues along the highway,” said Shannon Oliver, operations manager of the facility. “We situated the facility on more acreage to decrease noise, lights and dust for neighbors. We encourage truck drivers not to use their engine brakes or park along the highway.”
