    CALGARY, Feb. 19 /CNW/ - Deepwell Energy Services Trust (Deepwell) is
pleased to announce the opening today of its new state-of-the-art oilfield

third-party oilfield waste management provider in the local area.

Deepwell's four facilities. The facility was designed and constructed to
minimize turnaround time for Deepwell's customers and achieve high efficiency
