"At BuySWD.com, we provide a lot of advice for why a buyer should buy a particular saltwater disposal asset. We help facilitate those types of transactions. When any buyer is conducting due diligence, they want to know what the saltwater disposal well is doing currently. They want to know who the customers are and what opportunities there are to grow the business and drive more produced water volume to the facility."

"Before subscribing to Sourcewater, I was forced to use the Texas Railroad Commission website directly for my research. The process was archaic. It was extremely laborious and time consuming to go and pull each well individually, look at P-18 filings, and try to figure out where all operator leases were sending their water."
"I literally could spend an entire month just conducting research on the water market: where all the water was coming from, who the customers were, and I would have to piece that all together to create my own custom map, chart and graphs. It killed me. It absolutely killed me. It was a nightmare to do this."
"When Sourcewater launched it’s produced water intelligence product and created the online platform it made things so much easier. I can’t even quantify how much time it saved me. It was a god send. I could do a week's worth of work in an afternoon."
"Sourcewater easily helps a saltwater disposal buyer understand what opportunities exist and to determine how much water they may be able to add to each disposal system. This is very helpful, and you can’t do that on the Railroad Commission website. It is impossible. With Sourcewater, I could do that with a couple of clicks. It would take me less than an hour to put together a report that would show me upside potential on deals or opportunities to go after oil producers to secure their business."
"On Sourcewater, I can quickly locate saltwater disposal, oil, and gas assets and see them on a map. Then, I can visually see where all of the operator clients are, where their producing oil and gas wells are, and identify opportunities for saltwater disposal companies to secure additional water volumes from wells that are producing within a five mile radius. With Sourcewater, we can also identify potential pipeline targets. If you have a producing well within a 5 mile radius delivering water via truck to a competitor facilities 5-7 miles away, that would be an easy target to go after to supply a pipeline agreement with. We can identify these types of deals easily with Sourcewater. Identifying those opportunities for my clients really help paint a picture of upside potential for buying SWDs."
"Time is money. Every hour that I can save is worth several thousands an hour. Having Sourcewater enables us to get more transactions completed faster. Our goal is to do $50 million in transactions this year. With the help of Sourcewater, I really feel confident that we are going to hit or surpass that fifty million dollar mark. I am very grateful for Sourcewater bringing this thing to life. I have way too many features I love about the tool that I can’t cover in this testimonial. Sourcewater is light years ahead of anything else on the market."

“Blackbuck Resources LLC. is a private equity backed water management company. We design, build, acquire, and operate saltwater disposals and water pipelines and facility infrastructure, and we provide water sourcing services, water treatment services, and water storage & pond management services.

In order to make the best possible business decisions for our in-house operations and our customers, we need to know what is going on in the market. We need to know where our competitors are, who our prospective clients are, and what type of market activity is taking place. For example, knowing where all the frac pits, disposals wells, and new drilling and disposal permits are is key intelligence for the success of our business. It is critical for us to understand where produced water volumes are coming from and going to and logistical bottlenecks in the market.
We originally became clients of Sourcewater’s because we wanted to see how the system performed for us. The tool is user friendly, and allows even our most junior, non-technical team members to use it. We are able to access datasets like the produced water pit and Water Asset Intelligence datasets that we were not able to access before. To my knowledge, Sourcewater has datasets that are not offered anywhere else in the world, and our ability to leverage their toolset helps us make good operational and investment decisions."

Before Shell began working with Sourcewater they were trucking produced water over 200+ miles in the Marcellus from North East Pennsylvania to Ohio, while spending $8 per barrelon logistics costs.

After Shell signed up with Sourcewater, they were able to reduce their hauling distance to 20 miles and find alternative disposal options including inter-operator trades.
"Sourcewater connects us within the oil and gas community...I have found sources of water to recycle and buy that I didn't know were available...saving real money."

“Recently, a client called me with an urgent problem. A frac had come to a halt because the crew had run out of water. The stakes were high. The frac crew was stuck and every day of no activity was costing hundreds of thousands in OPEX. In an effort to help my client secure the water they needed, I began contacting my network of water sellers but soon realized that all known water sources in the area were already dedicated to other oil and gas clients."

"I turned to Sourcewater for support. Within 30 minutes, a Customer Success Manager at Sourcewater helped me quickly find new water sources I was not aware of and that I ultimately relied on to source the needed water for the frac. Sourcewater saved the day including hundreds of thousands of dollars in OPEX. I made my client look like a hero and in the process, I delivered the results I guarantee. I couldn't have done it without Sourcewater that day. "
