Heckmann Corporation Announces Record Second Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Stocks in this article: HEK

Operational Update

Heckmann Water Resources (HWR) owns both produced water and fresh water pipelines, which are operated for shale gas and oil producers in Louisiana and Texas. HWR also transports, stores, processes and disposes environmentally regulated water primarily throughout Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio. HWR currently provides water transfer services in Louisiana, Texas, Pennsylvania and Ohio.

In the second quarter of 2012, HWR generated steady growth through a combination of securing long-term contracts and volume commitments in the gas basins and expanding operations in the oil and liquids-rich basins. During the second quarter, HWR began operating two new saltwater disposal wells in the Eagle Ford Shale area and initiated water treatment services in the Eagle Ford Shale area at an HWR well site for the treatment and reuse of flowback and produced water. These technologically advanced water treatment services will allow HWR to provide full service offerings in the Eagle Ford Shale area.

To deepen HWR’s coverage in the Marcellus/Utica Shale area as well as expand its fleet and meet contracts with a large E&P customer, Heckmann made a strategic acquisition of a small trucking company in southwest Pennsylvania. At the end of July, HWR acquired a saltwater disposal well in the Marcellus/Utica Shale area and finished construction of a disposal well in the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale area, both of which are expected to begin operating in the third quarter.

In the Haynesville Shale area, HWR’s business and pricing have remained stable with incremental sequential growth in its produced water pipeline volume. HWR’s produced water pipeline throughput increased sequentially to approximately 50,000 average barrels per day in the second quarter of 2012, compared with 42,000 average barrels per day in the first quarter of 2012, 40,000 average barrels per day in the fourth quarter of 2011, 30,000 average barrels per day in third quarter of 2011, and 17,000 average barrels per day in the second quarter of 2011.
