"I think I know some of the answer but I still like to ask the question. What the hell did these O&G companies think they were going to do with this waste? Did they not know that Pa. had something like only 6 disposal wells. OOPs. They know how…"

yes Richard Rex Energys southwestern region consists of the properties owned by the company in Texas and New Mexico prodominatly located in the Permian Basin. the sale consosts of around 10,000 acres. the buyer of these assets is Adventure Exploration Partners, LLC of Midland, Texas theses assets were puchased for around $18 million.
