Intervale Capital

Intervale Capital has acquired a majority stake in American Disposal Services (ADS), which provides disposal of injectable drilling and production waste in the Eagle Ford and Haynesville shale plays, with operating facilities in Frio, Atascosa, Fayette, and Newton counties in Texas.
