MIDLAND, Texas, Aug. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- STW Resources Holding Corp (OTC QB: STWS) announced the signing of a partnership agreement with a Texas ranching family to lease brackish water rights and build, own and operate a Proprietary state of the art "Hybrid Reverse Osmosis Water Processing System" capable of processing approximately 30,000 barrels of brackish water per day on the family's ranch located in Upton and other surrounding Texas County(s) forty miles southwest of Midland. In the agreement, STW will pay a 23% royalty to have access rights to the brackish water on several sections of land. Additionally, STW will own and operate the water systems designed by STW to process and deliver water to oil & gas producers for use in drilling and completing wells on and around the family ranch and for use on other oil & gas field in the area. There are in excess of 40 drillings rigs working in and around the ranch.
Signing this agreement is the next step in our plan is to build multiple STW Proprietary Hybrid Reverse Osmosis Facilies to sell processed brackish water to oil & gas producers. These projects will include access to a disposal well for any waste from the operation, ample supply of brackish water for processing, operation of the water reclamation facilities and a loading/unloading depot or extended water pipeline systems for water delivery. STW will process brackish water and sell it to producers at a prevailing rate similar to the current rate they are paying for fresh water currently per barrel ($.80-$1.10 per barrel). STW has received commitments from a major producer to purchase the water. Drilling activity is expected to continue for the next ten-fifteen years.
The first facility will initially process approximately 30,000 barrels or 1,260,000 gallons of brackish water per day and deliver approximately 27,000 barrels or 1,134,000 gallons of fresh water per day to producers. The STW Proprietary Hybrid RO System can recover approximately 90% of the fresh water from the Brackish water. The capacity can be increased at any time to process up to 50,000+ barrels per day as demand for water increases. The first phase of the project has several brackish water wells completed with additional wells to be drilled and a disposal well is planned for the near future. Estimated costs to build the first 30,000-barrel per day STW Hybrid RO System and drill 7 new brackish water wells is approximately $2.9 million. The landowners contracted recently to have a hydrogeological study performed on the brackish water reservoir and it validated the ample supply of brackish water for this project. The facility is expected to be operable in the fourth quarter of 2014.
STW CEO Stanley Weiner stated, "This is a great partnership, we're working with a local family and extending the company's model to conserve fresh water while the development of an oil rich area continues to happen. This is a win-win deal. Still increasing the US oil production while conserving our fresh water resources."
Alan Murphy President of STW Water added, "This project is a model for STW as our plan is to continue signing agreements and working with landowners to process and sell the currently unusable brackish water. It's good for everyone, the landowners conserve their fresh water and STW creates revenues further increasing shareholder value."
STW Resources Holdings Corp. consults and provides customized water analysis, reclamation and remediation services to a variety of complex oil and gas produced and flowback water, brackish water, industrial, and municipal applications throughout several geographic locations. As an independent solutions provider, STW utilizes proven technologies, from various well-known manufacturers, including Salttech, a Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) technology that is economically feasible to use. These technologies are available as fixed or mobile units with varying capabilities. STW's process ensures that the most effective and efficient technologies are implemented. Current potential project locations include the Eagle Ford Shale (TX), the west Texas Delaware and Permian Basins (TX), and eastern New Mexico. STW is also involved in the oilfield dirt construction business providing roads, pits, locations, and water pond construction. It also offers evaporation covers for the elimination of evaporation on frack ponds used throughout the oilfield. Evaporation causes the operators millions of dollars in losses annually. Covering the ponds is a conservational and economic method of preserving one of our natural resources and can be floated on to existing ponds or installed during construction. It also eliminates algae growth, doubles as a bird net, and reduces erosion of pond infrastructure. High quality liners with fusion-welded seams, quality control testing including air tests of seams and destruction testing are also standard. STW Energy, a subsidiary of STW Holding Corp, offers a turnkey rig washing service. STW services include roustabout services for several major oil and gas producers too. STW's Pipeline Maintenance & Construction division aids oil & gas companies in connecting new wells so the oil & gas can be sold to market and helps maintain the integrity of their existing pipeline infrastructure.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again.
