Green Group Holdings unit GGH Wyoming LLC has opened its Grasslands Environmental facility near Bill, WY, to serve the waste disposal and water needs of the state's oil and gas producers. The facility includes a pull-through commercial oilfield wastewater disposal facility, an industrial landfill, a non-potable water supply well, and two Class I injection wells. Grasslands Environmental covers 482 acres and will contain about 10 million cubic yards of permitted airspace for the disposal of solid waste generated by the oil and gas industry. The facility will offer disposal of produced and flowback water, contaminated soil, and industrial wastes. The design of the facility ensures that trucks are always moving forward to minimize backing within the facility. Another safety feature of the facility is active water transfer, meaning control over water is maintained at all times, ensuring there is no risk of losing containment, according to Green Group. Grasslands Environmental began fresh water sales in August and will begin accepting wastewater in late October, the company said. The industrial landfill and the deep well injection sites are in the permitting process and expected to be operational next year. Green Group specializes in the development of large-scale infrastructure, environmental permitting and operations for projects such as industrial parks, water supply facilities, transfer stations, facilities for processing recyclable materials, and solid waste landfills.
