Source Water

Water demand for oil and gas well completions has increased dramatically in recent years with extended lateral lengths and significant water concentrations in hydraulic fracturing formulas. Our water solutions include high quality non-potable water sources, strategic storage locations, high capacity pipeline delivery systems as well as water recycling and treatment options.

Success in the Permian

Layne Water Midstream constructed one of the largest non-potable source water platforms in the Delaware Basin with more than 2 million barrels of storage capacity and more than 175,000 barrels per day of water pipeline delivery capacity.

Layne Water Midstream developed the Hermosa Pipeline, comprised of more than 26 miles of large diameter pipeline network with 18 delivery points.

Layne Water Midstream holds more than 250,000 acres of water rights and surface access. Much of our acreage in Reeves and Culberson counties comes through our exclusive deal with the Texas General Land Office to develop and market non-potable groundwater for energy development during the next 20 years. We also have numerous other land owner partnerships throughout the Permian Basin, including a recently announced partnership with University Lands covering all of its acreage in Ward, Winkler and Loving counties.
