From a Press Release of Green Hunter Resources, August 14, 2013

GRAPEVINE, TX.  Green Hunter Resources has revealed that its site plan for the water recycling and barging facility located in Wheeling, WV has been approved by the Wheeling Planning Commission. This site was originally acquired by GreenHunter Resources in March of this year. GreenHunter expects to receive all necessary building permits over the next several weeks and plans to commence construction upon receipt of all required permits. (NOTE: The US Army Corps of Engineers permit to transport drilling wastes on the Ohio River has not been issued. dgn)

Mr. John Jack, Vice President, Appalachian Basin, commented, “GreenHunter has met all of the requirements as requested by the Planning Commission in Wheeling, WV. We are looking forward to helping Wheeling contribute a much needed water management solution to the West Virginia oil and gas industry. Once complete, GreenHunter’s Wheeling Barge Terminal and Recycling facility will provide job opportunities for members of the community and help to reduce congestion on roadways by replacing truck traffic with barge transport. GreenHunter continues to look for ways to reduce the cost of water handling and disposal for our customers in this region.”

GreenHunter Water, LLC provides Total Water Management Solutions™ 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 (Frac-Cycle®), GreenHunter Water is expanding capacity of salt water disposal facilities, next-generation modular above-ground storage tanks (MAG Tank™), advanced hauling and fresh water logistics services—including 21st Century tracking technologies (RAMCATTM) that allow Shale producers to optimize the efficiency of their water resource management and planning while complying with emerging regulations and reducing cost.
