Salt Water Disposal (SWD) Class II Injection Wells

The use of saltwater disposal wells for underground injection has traditionally been the primary disposal option for produced water by the oil and gas industry. Classified as a “Class II” injection well and when properly sited, constructed and operated, underground injection wells have served as an effective and environmentally safe method of disposing of wastewater as sanctioned by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) for almost 80 years.

Saltwater disposal wells are used to return the processed saltwater back to underground porous rock formations once the water is separated from the oil and gas. These wells utilize proven technologies and are a monitored, safe and necessary practice, which are overseen and inspected regularly by the Texas Railroad Commission and follow the Salt Water Disposal (SWD) regulations and industry standards that are considered safe and effective.
