Drilling Permit Roundup: Several saltwater disposal wells planned for Eagle Ford Shale

Increased oil and natural gas drilling in the western end of the Eagle Ford Shale is boosting one related service — saltwater disposal. A new permit filed by Oklahoma-based NGL Water Solutions LLC highlights a new trend playing out in the western end of the shale play, where increased drilling activity is being followed by new commercial saltwater disposal wells. NGL Water Solutions is seeking permission from the Railroad Commission of Texas to drill a new injection well on its HR Cotulla SWD lease off FM 468 about 4 miles northwest of Cotulla.
