Houston, TX, – Rockwater Energy Solutions, Inc., a fluids management and environmental solutions provider to the oilfield industry, announced today the acquisition of MWS, LLC, a mobile above-ground water storage provider headquartered in Ault, Colorado. MWS provides patent-pending steel tanks, ranging in capacity from 9,600 barrels to 40,000 barrels, to meet the water storage needs of the oilfield across North America.

Above-ground storage tanks are a new service offering for Rockwater and provide a cost-effective and environmentally-conscious alternative for the onsite storage of fluids in the oilfield. The MWS tank design combines the efficiency of quick assembly and disassembly with the structural integrity of an engineer-certified, patent-pending hinge system for safety and strength.

“We are excited to broaden our fluids management solutions with this new offering, which we will now be able to provide to customers in each of the regions in which we operate. We were highly selective in our search for a partner for this service, and chose MWS for their focus on safety and their superior tank design. This new capability will become an integral part of the overall fluids management, logistics, and conditioning system that we offer to our customers. We are pleased to have MWS joining the Rockwater team,” commented Larry O’Donnell, Chairman, President and CEO of Rockwater.

“MWS is pleased to join forces with Rockwater to integrate our water storage offering into the end-to-end fluids solutions that Rockwater provides the oilfield,” said Cliff Simpson, President and Founder of MWS.
