Buckhorn SWD Solutions, LLC (Buckhorn), a leading provider of midstream gathering systems, saltwater disposal solutions and waste management for the oil and gas sector, announced that it has entered into a service agreement with XTO Energy Inc. (XTO), a subsidiary of Exxon Mobil Corporation, to provide produced water gathering and disposal services in McKenzie County, North Dakota.

Buckhorn will build, own and operate an 87 mile pipeline and disposal system, and will provide produced water gathering and disposal services for XTO Energy's Williston Basin operations. Gary Ebel, CEO of Buckhorn's parent, Buckhorn Energy Services, LLC said: "We are proud to work with the premier operators across our footprint in the Williston and Permian Basins. Our tailor-made systems, like the one we are doing with XTO targeting operations in McKenzie County, reduce field level costs and increase reliability. We have the in-house technical expertise, financial flexibility and operational strength to grow with our clients as operators in the Williston and Permian Basins ramp up production. We look forward to working with XTO and other operators in the McKenzie County area on this system."

The system will serve XTO's dedicated acreage, as well as other operator wells in the area. The system will feature fixed, buried pipelines, which will include a gathering line to transport produced and flowback water for disposal or recycling. Construction on the system is expected to begin in April 2017.
