Midstream Services for the Oil and Gas Industry

Basic’s Midstream Services offers disposal capacity and access to pipelines and 86 saltwater disposal wells to midstream oil and gas customers and the public across the United States.

To meet the midstream companies’ need for produced water, Basic has focused on creating the pipeline and saltwater disposal well network infrastructure and geographic presence required to keep pace with the increasing volumes of produced water. From December 2017 through December 2018, we doubled our piped volumes, disposing over three million barrels of produced water a month across the country.

We created this midstream services unit to better serve the energy industry, while separating our pipelines and saltwater disposal wells from our trucking fleet, which remains under our Water Logistics offering, Basic offers multi-faceted solutions to water management.

Basic is Your Midstream Produced Water Partner

Basic Energy Services is your produced water treatment partner, managing every aspect of produced water treatment, from pipeline maintenance and construction to water trucking and disposal.

When you partner with Basic in a full or part-ownership capacity, we will build, drill, operate and manage your frac pits, pipeline infrastructure and SWDs as well as help manage your water disposal needs.

If you’re a midstream company with SWD assets and a traditional hub-and-spoke truck model, Basic can install a pipeline infrastructure and provide access to water disposal capacity.

In addition to building infrastructure through partnerships, our saltwater disposal wells are also opening to the public for 3rd party trucks, as well as direct-billing options.
