Ecoserv Environmental Services operates an E & P waste waterfront transfer facility in Louisiana. Located in Port Fourchon, this site is regulated by the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources and are permitted to receive RCRA Exempt Exploration and Production wastes generated in both Federal and State waters as well as inland locations. Waste shipments are documented using the UIC 28 and are transferred into our fleet of US Coast Guard certificated barges. Typical types of waste received at this transfer site includes drilling and completion fluids and cuttings, production wastes and tank bottoms, gas plant waste as well as oil and gas pipeline wastes.
Received wastes are commingled into the barge until capacity of approximately 6000 barrels is reached per barge. The barges are then transported via the Intracoastal Waterway to our Port Arthur, TX processing facility. Ecoserv takes possession of the waste at the time of transfer into the barge and manifests the material from the receiving facility to Port Arthur as Commercial Facility Waste.
Ecoserv is Texas’ first comprehensive, streamlined solution for E&P waste disposal. This includes the most environmentally friendly options for the decontamination and decommissioning of industrial equipment and naturally occurring radioactive material (NORM) disposal. Our highly trained staff deliver an unsurpassed quality of work for all customers due to their extensive knowledge of NORM regulations and wide-spread experience in support of compliant production and drilling operations.
Ecoserv Environmental Services utilizes low-pressure injection technology to manage your Railroad Commission-regulated waste streams, ensuring that RCRA-exempt non-hazardous oilfield wastes (NOW) are disposed of in the most environmentally sound manner possible.
