Positions Rockwater to be the Leading Above‐Ground Storage Tank Provider in North America

Houston, TX – June 25, 2013. Rockwater Energy Solutions, Inc. announced today the purchase of approximately 400 additional high-capacity above-ground water storage tanks (ASTs) and related assets from Calgary-based Poseidon Concepts Corp. and its subsidiaries. Rockwater entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement with Poseidon in May 2013 to purchase substantially all of its high-capacity water storage and containment systems assets to help Rockwater meet the water storage needs of its oilfield customers across North America.

This new inventory of Above-Ground Storage Tanks will be integrated into Rockwater’s existing fleet. Rockwater’s new fleet consists of various sizes to meet a range of applications, ranging from 4,500 to 41,000 barrel capacity. Above-Ground Storage Tanks have revolutionized the industry by reducing the truck traffic and environmental footprint associated with traditional frac tanks, while offering cost savings to operators.

These units are available immediately on a rental basis or as part of a turn-key water management package, and are ready for deployment to any major play in Western Canada and the United States. In addition to the new tanks, Rockwater customers will also benefit from a number of water containment support technologies acquired in the Poseidon transaction, including Volcano™ E-Heat tank heating systems, which improve the efficiency of managing the temperature of sourced hydraulic fracturing fluids.

“This is a great move for us,” notes Larry O’Donnell, Chairman, President, and CEO of Rockwater. “Above-Ground Storage is an integral part of our North American water management system. We offer customers comprehensive water management solutions throughout the water life cycle of the well, and our ability to optimize water storage is key to the efficient management of water in the oilfield. From water transfer and logistics to chemical technologies and water recycling, Rockwater’s water life cycle approach is helping our customers increase their production, lower their cost, and reduce their environmental footprint.”

Rockwater has one of the industry’s most expansive logistical positions to support the deployment of this new fleet of Above-Ground Storage Tanks along with its other water management services in North America, including operations in Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio, and Western Canada.

Demand for tanks to support hydraulic fracturing has steadily increased over the past five years. As a result of this acquisition, Rockwater is now positioned to be the leading provider of Above-Ground Storage Tanks to oilfield customers in North America.
