Encore Green Environmental (EGE) Announces Roll Out of Beneficial Use of Produced Water with Agricultural Partners

MIDLAND, Texas -- Encore Green Environmental LLC (EGE), announce their immediate plans to treat produced water for beneficial use with Texas agriculture partners, with NOMAD EXCEL water technology developed specifically to assist in drought conditions. EGE is proud to announce today that their years of dedication to this goal has not been in vain.

As part of the treatment program, EGE has partnered the technology with West Texas legacy landowner, Cody Wilson, owner of Wilson Farms, to recycle produced water and apply the clean water to the surface estate for agricultural beneficial uses and for Wilson's non-edible crops.

"I look forward to being part of this project with EGE because without it, I don't see our type of farming lasting in this part of the world," said Wilson.

Wilson, who has deep ties to his family's lands and its natural resources, has joined EGE in effort to provide and find solutions for regions where source water is scarce. Without the efforts of EGE to put produced water to beneficial use on crop lands, farmers like Wilson will face startling realities for reliable water sources for their crop futures.

EGE is the owner of proven technology and the water treatment equipment, known as NOMAD EXCEL, and units are ready to move onto Wilson's lands. According to Darlene Nash, Owner of Encore Green, "There is nothing more important than the use of this technology now available to benefit soil health and climate wellness."

To further their position, Wilson has also entered into a contractual agreement with an industry midstream partner to provide the produced water for treatment and beneficial use. By treating and using the produced water that would otherwise be disposed of, thereby removing it permanently from the water cycle, Wilson hopes to show landowners and operators within the industry the working together, solutions are available and affordable.

EGE is set apart from others in the produced water recycling sphere by the end use product available for agriculture. The goal is to continue focus on treating produced water for the purpose of industry re-use and providing a bridge between the industry and landowners. It also recognizes that as seismicity continues, disposal constraints increase, and overall water scarcity becomes more prevalent.

About Encore Green Environmental LLC:

In 2017, Encore Green Environmental LLC (EGE) formed as an agricultural company dedicated to land stewardship and providing solutions for industry produced water management and handling. EGE set a goal to clean produced water for the purpose of putting it to beneficial use on the land - recycling produced water for agricultural use to achieve better soil health and other climate benefits. Encore Green is a Wyoming limited liability company, registered to do business in the State of Texas.
