Fortress Environmental Services works with the leading Eagle Ford Shale trucking companies to provide a streamlined and highly efficient salt water disposal operation.

Over the past 30 years, the company’s management team has built hundreds of SWD sites throughout Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas. During this build out they spent many years developing good, old-fashioned handshake relationships with numerous oilfield service companies, drilling exploration/production operators and tanker truck transport fleets.

The company listened closely to what fleet managers, dispatchers and truck drivers said they wanted and needed to make their business run faster, more efficiently so that they could maximize drive time, labor costs, fuel costs and reduce truck maintenance costs.

Based on many years of feedback, Fortress built its first leading-edge, state-of-the-art, one-stop SWD disposal and truck wash in Gonzales, Texas, that was designed specifically with truck drivers in mind. The facility allows drivers to complete an 8-minute wastewater dump, a 20-minute truck trailer tank washout, a 20-minute exterior truck wash, and if needed a 12-minute fresh water fill-up and be back on the road in a little over an hour’s time.

Time is money. And saving time on quick turn around service from a single location allows truckers and trucking companies to transport many more loads in a single day. During an oil boom downturn earning as much revenue as possible is a very important consideration for both drilling operators and oilfield service companies.

The nearest truck tank wash outs, frac tank wash outs and exterior truck washes (wash racks) are 160 miles away in either San Antonio or 220 miles away in Houston. And most regular truck washes don’t provide saltwater disposal tanker transport or 500 BBL frac tank wash outs in tandem with a standard exterior truck, which means stopping at more than one type of truck wash to get the job done.

It doesn’t take truckers or trucking companies long to do the math based on miles, fuel costs, drive time and man-hours to determine that Fortress SWD site and truck wash can save thousands of dollars. On average, stopping at Fortress Environmental’s SWD truck stop allows each truck driver to save around $1,900 to $2,800 per disposal. (Click here to download a spreadsheet calculator).
