Converting “CAPEX to OPEX”
About WaterBridge

WaterBridge develops, owns and operates permanent, integrated water infrastructure networks to address the long-term produced water management requirements of E&P companies. Our water pipeline and disposal systems provide our customers with reliable and efficient gathering and disposal of produced water.

Water management is a critical aspect of our customers’ oil and gas operations.  As a result of the rapid growth in oil and gas production due to the widespread adoption of horizontal drilling, we believe large-scale, permanent water infrastructure networks are necessary to maintain current levels of oil and gas production in unconventional oil and gas basins.

Business Overview

WaterBridge's mission is to provide comprehensive and integrated water management solutions for the E&P industry by acquiring and developing infrastructure systems for produced water, reuse, source, and disposal and water treatment in a socially and environmentally responsible manner, all while ensuring unqualified reliability, safety and best practices at the lowest long-term water cost for our customers. WaterBridge is pursuing greenfield and brownfield acquisition opportunities in emerging resource plays and other conventional producing basins.


WaterBridge is supporting America’s expanding E&P activity—15% to 30% of the costs of which are associated with water logistics and services. By transforming handling and disposal of the average seven barrels of water for each barrel of oil from a Capex to an Opex.


Our executive team’s full-cycle water management knowledge offers advantages throughout the acquisition, development, and management of water infrastructure assets.  WaterBridge’s leadership team’s more than 200 years of combined background working with leading energy companies in the field, while creating stakeholder relationships is based on trust, ethics, integrity and with a focus on developing long-term partnerships.


The comprehensiveness of our team’s experience allows WaterBridge to bring together the diverse facets of SWD operations, including infrastructure, pipeline, process equipment, treatment, storage, pumping, and injection—infusing added value within each step to provide an efficient funding source in this challenging market.


WaterBridge will purchase existing water infrastructure assets and operate them for your benefit, enabling you to monetize those assets and redeploy the capital for higher-return use for the full life of your company’s upstream investments.


WaterBridge’s systems provides for safe, efficient injection and management of wastewater back into the ground from which it came, while also adhering to statutory requirements and embracing our commitment and stewardship.
