Agreements Mark 5th and 6th in Western Canada
CALGARY, June 21, 2012 /CNW/ - Ridgeline Energy Services Inc. (TSX-V:
RLE) (OTCQX: RGDEF) ("Ridgeline" or the "Company") announces that
Ridgeline GreenFill Inc. ("RGI"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of
Ridgeline Energy Services, has entered into two new commercial
agreements; one with Big Country Waste Management Commission ("BCWMC")
and its municipal landfill site near Youngstown, Alberta; another with
Southwest Waste Management Authority ("SWMA") and its municipal
landfill site near Shaunavon, Saskatchewan.
Once operational, the BCWMC site will be Ridgeline's fourth facility in
Alberta, and the SWMA site will be the company's second in
Saskatchewan. Consistent with other GreenFill sites, these new
facilities are conveniently located for oil and gas producers, thereby
reducing the trucking of waste and lowering transportation costs.
Ridgeline develops GreenFill Treatment FacilitiesTM by constructing treatment and storage pads on regional landfill sites.
RGI then safely transforms contaminated soil into landfill cover by
utilizing biological, mechanical and chemical means.
RGI expects commercial operations to commence at both sites prior to the
end of 2012, pending final approval by provincial regulatory
authorities. The commercial agreements for both facilities provide for
the eventual expansion into wet waste treatment and other industrial
waste streams, two areas that Ridgeline has identified to have
significant revenue potential.
Greg Sheppard, Operations Manager of BCWMC, stated, "We are excited to
move forward with RGI on the approval, construction and operation of
this facility. The oilfield waste recycling and reuse strategies
employed by RGI will coincide nicely with our landfill cover operations
while providing a solid revenue stream to our waste commission and the
James Leroy, Chairman of SWMA, stated, "The energy business is thriving
in southeast Saskatchewan and we are eager to move forward on this
Tony Ker, CEO of Ridgeline, stated, "RGI's process and technology
benefit communities and our clients. The municipalities we serve
realize a new source of revenue, and the treated soil meets an ongoing
demand for landfill cover and capping or decommissioning material. At
the same time, our clients benefit from lower transportation costs and
reduced liability. An added benefit is that our approach is better for
the environment since we treat the soil for reuse. Under conventional
methods, contaminated soil may be stored indefinitely in industrial
