Advantek’s Karnes
County Facility

The Eagle Ford Basin’s Most Environmentally and Economically Sustainable Waste Disposal Option





Safe, permanent, and cost effective waste sequestration

Located in the core of the Eagle Ford Shale in Texas, the Karnes County facility uses Advantek’s patented slurry injection techniques – built upon an innovation first utilized and patented by the company’s founder in 1984 – to ensure permanent waste containment, with the smallest footprint, and no surface liabilities.

Using slurry injection, Advantek Karnes County delivers both an environmentally and economically sustainable solution for the disposal of complex wastes from drilling, completion, production operations for all of the region’s oil and gas operators.

Through appropriate geological formation selection, well design, and advanced monitoring, waste is conditioned and injected into fissures created and maintained in the targeted zone.

The Karnes County facility is monitored in real-time to provide assurance of a safe operation through the use of on-site sensors. Data is transmitted to our headquarters to our servers and our proprietary software @SSURE® generates dashboards, runs data analysis using machine learning techniques and sets-up of alarms systems. Our engineering team verifies in a daily-basis that well conditions are optimal for a secure and permanent disposal into the targeted formation.
