SECUR O&G recognized for opening state-of-the-art facility for the safe processing and disposal of NORM/TENORM liquid and solid wastes generated by oil and gas operators in the Marcellus and Utica Shales
Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) - SECUR O&G won an award for outstanding business performance in 2018 from Environmental Business Journal®. SECUR O&G received its award in the category of "Investment: New Facilities" for its Oil and Gas Waste Materials Management Facility serving the Marcellus-Utica Shale region in OH, PA and WV.
Environmental Business Journal is a business research publication that provides high value strategic business intelligence to the environmental industry.
“In what is widely regarded as a stable market, a number of companies exceeded the norms of low single-digit growth with double-digit growth or ambitious ventures into new practice areas or technology development,” said Grant Ferrier, president of Environmental Business International Inc. (EBI, Inc.), publisher of Environmental Business Journal.
In August 2018, SECUR O&G opened the Oil and Gas Waste Materials Management Facility in Friendly, WV for the proper transport and disposal of NORM/TENORM. The facility is the first of its kind to be approved by the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources to store and process TENORM-related waters and solids.
Said SECUR president John Evanko, “SECUR operates in accordance with the highest standards and strictest protocols to protect workers and the environment.”
The facility was designed by the SECUR O&G leadership team and features dedicated, enclosed buildings and air monitoring. All processing and storage areas have secondary containment to further safeguard the environment. An independent, certified on-site laboratory operated by Perma-Fix Environmental Services performs radiological analysis of NORM/TENORM material.
SECUR Senior Vice President of Sales Chris Vidovich will accept the award on behalf of SECUR O&G at a special ceremony to be held during the Environmental Industry Summit XVII in San Diego, CA on March 20, 2019.
