Houston, November 15, 2021/PRNewswire/ - Breakwater Energy Partners, LLC ("Breakwater") is pleased to announce that its second Texas Railroad Commission Morita Commercial Recycling Facility ("Morita") has Groundbreaking ("RRC") Part 6 H-11 Commercial Permit Facility for receiving, storing, processing, processing and recovering harmless oil and natural gas produced water. Breakwater also operates nine independent non-commercial water recovery facilities for five operators in the Midland Basin. After completion, Morita will become one of the largest produced water recovery facilities in the Permian Basin, with a daily processing capacity of more than 200,000 barrels.

The rising seismic activity in the Permian Basin prompted RRC to announce two separate seismic response actions ("SRA") to limit the injection of produced water into regional salt water treatment wells ("SWD"). RRC has determined that the injection of produced water into SWD is likely to be the main reason for the unprecedented increase in seismic frequency and intensity in the Permian Basin. "As more and more earthquake events move to population centers near Midland, Stanton, and Big Springs, alternative wastewater treatment options are becoming critical for operators. This is what we provide for recycling facilities in these areas. ." Breakwater CEO Jason Jennaro said. "Operators are looking for environmentally sustainable alternatives to deal with these SRA and seismic clusters, which is why system interconnection and commercial recycling are essential to the proper management of the water supply chain."

Morita is located in the southwestern part of Howard County and will provide sustainable water solutions for Martin County, Glascock County and Howard County. Morita will also be interconnected with the Big Spring Recycling System ("BSRS") of Breakwater, Texas' first and largest commercial produced water recovery facility, which has recently expanded to Martin County with a large diameter pipeline that can be transported daily Up to 360,000 barrels of water. Recycled water. Morita and BSRS connect the produced water systems of many operators to connection points and storage points, enabling Breakwater to provide customers with fracturing water mixtures of up to 100% reclaimed water. In total, BSRS and Morita will be able to process and distribute more than 500,000 barrels of produced water per day to the Midland Basin.
