GreenHunter Water Goes Operational On New Disposal Facility In Washington County, Ohio

GreenHunter Resources, Inc. (NYSE MKT:GRH)(NYSE MKT:GRH.PRC) (the “Company”), a diversified water resource, waste management and environmental services company specializing in the unconventional oil and natural gas shale resource plays, announced today that its wholly-owned subsidiary, GreenHunter Water, LLC, began today commercial operations at a new salt water disposal (SWD) facility located in Newport, Washington County, Ohio. This riverside SWD has the potential to inject a minimum of 1,200 barrels per day (BBL/D) of oilfield brine. New field personnel have been hired to run the SWD facility.

The Newport SWD is strategically located in proximity to GreenHunter’s existing Appalachian operations handling water logistics for both the Marcellus and Utica Shale Plays. With this new SWD facility, the Company’s SWD capacity in the region has grown to over 13,000 BBL/D. Management is exploring options to develop pipeline infrastructure to access this specific facility, thereby eliminating truck transportation traffic and costs for our customers.

Management Comments

Commenting on the start of commercial operations at the Newport salt water disposal facility, John Jack, GreenHunter Vice President in the Appalachian region, stated, “We are excited to see the Newport SWD finally in commercial operation. We have been working on this project for over a year. Our oilfield customers have increased their demand for disposal capacity recently and we have been working hard to bring on additional water handling capabilities to alleviate the increased supply constraints being experienced in this region. We have a very exciting pipeline of developments that should keep our Oilfield Fluid Management Solutions™ infrastructure growing and help our customers in reducing their overall cost of water handling as they continue developing this tremendous domestic oil and gas unconventional resource.”
