Commenting on this new division, Kirk Trosclair, EVP and Chief Operating Officer, stated, “Our goal of becoming a ‘one-stop-shop’ for producers in this region is becoming a reality with respect to this announcement today. Handling all forms of hydrocarbons in the evolving Marcellus and Utica Shale Plays has become more difficult due to the substantial growth in production for this region. GreenHunter Resources is already the largest disposal and trucking contractor entity in the tri-state area handling more fluids than any competitor, by dispatching over 1000 trucks per week, of which over 50% are third party. Now with the ability to also handle hydrocarbons, we can truly meet 100% of the fluid needs of our customers by being a Total Fluids Management Solutions™ company.”About GreenHunter Resources, Inc. GreenHunter Resources, Inc., through its wholly owned subsidiaries, GreenHunter Water, LLC and GreenHunter Environmental Solutions, LLC, provides Total Water Management Solutions™/Oilfield Fluid Management Solutions™ in the oilfield and its shale plays of the Appalachian Basin. GreenHunter Water continues to expand its services package by increasing down-hole injection capacity with Class II salt water disposal wells and facilities, with the launch of next-generation modular above-ground frac water storage tanks (MAG Tank™), and with advanced water hauling – including a growing fleet of DOT rated 407 trucks, for hauling condensates and water with the presence of condensates.
