CALGARY, April 10, 2013 /CNW/ - Ridgeline Energy Services Inc. (TSX-V: RLE; OTCQX: RGDEF; FSE: RL7) ("Ridgeline" or the "Company"), a technology driven Company operating in the waste water industry announces a new Punxsutawney Pennsylvania water treatment facility and expansion of its New Mexico facility.
Ridgeline is pleased to announce its entry into Pennsylvania and the Marcellus Shale with a facility project located near Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. This agreement was executed today. The initial Single Train Commercial Unit will concentrate on produced water, with an anchor customer providing approximately 2,500-4,000 barrels of waste water per day. The Company is locating other permanent installations in the same production area to expand its logistical footprint in Western Pennsylvania. Installation of the initial STCI will begin in about thirty days.
Ridgeline has also been granted an expansion of its current facility located in Southeastern New Mexico. Shipment of Ridgeline equipment manufactured in Scottsdale, Arizona started today. The facility will grow from its current 2,500 barrel per day capacity to 5,000 barrels per day. Installation of the expansion is currently taking place and will be completed by April 19th.
Dennis M. Danzik CEO stated "Our oil and gas presence continues to grow as our large anchor customers continue to expand and look for opportunities to reduce costs through contracting with Ridgeline. Slowly, but steadily the oil and gas industry moves to a treat, and recycle model. I see the industry extending itself toward solid environmentally sound policies which save water and capital in the process. Opportunities for Ridgeline in water treatment within the oil and gas industry have never been stronger."
