The safer, smarter, easier alternative

At present, the use of reserve pits and landfarming are permissible in Texas, and the contents that get dumped into them are deemed by the Texas Railroad Commission to be non-hazardous. But that was a ruling from the 1970s. What we now know for certain is that the hydrocarbons that end up in pits or get spread on the ground emit greenhouse gasses into the air and contaminants into the soil. Milestone gives you an environmentally responsible alternative, at about the same cost as dealing with waste the old risky ways.

A leap forward in the energy transition

Global carbon emissions from fossil fuels have skyrocketed in the last century, which is now prompting enormous change across the energy industry. Producers are under mounting pressure to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and their carbon footprint as society pushes toward a net-zero economy. Meeting these aggressive goals will require many initiatives working concurrently. Milestone gives the industry another opportunity to meet the pressing demand for energy transition.

Endless environmental upside

Milestone’s slurry injection method not only locks hydrocarbons and other harmful contaminants away forever deep underground, it also preserves precious land resources. The elimination of unsightly reserve pits and landfarming, which place contaminated wastes above the water table, ensures that prime land stays unscarred, unpolluted, and unlimited in its potential for more productive uses. The land we walk on, the water we drink, and the air we breathe is better protected, your company is shielded from future environmental liability, and your ESG goals are better met.
