LONGVIEW, Texas – Scott Environmental Services International LLC – an oilfield service company specializing in solid drilling waste management for the oil and gas exploration and production industry – announced today that it is changing its corporate name to Scott Energy Technologies LLC. The name change reflects the company's expertise in and commitment to leading the next generation of solid drilling waste management through engineered solutions.
Although in some states the company’s operations worked under the Scott Environmental Services International LLC name, in Texas and Okla. the company functioned as Scott Environmental Services, Inc. Now, all operations fall under the new corporate name Scott Energy Technologies LLC.
"The new name – Scott Energy Technologies LLC – allows us to emphasize our wide-ranging business objectives, including that of altering the perception and management of solid drilling waste, which has become an industry-wide issue," said Blake Scott, president of Scott Energy Technologies LLC. "We are committed to using the latest technologies to deliver breakthrough products and services that will help our clients reduce liability and achieve cost-effectiveness."
According to the American Petroleum Institute, for every foot drilled in the United States, 1.21 barrels of drilling waste are generated, of which Scott has found approximately half to be solid drilling waste. Due to the scarcity of satisfactory disposal methods, the company has developed technologically superior processes to manage that waste.
Following many years of research and development, Scott was able to obtain a patent for its solidification/stabilization processes, Firmus® and Duro℠, which not only result in safe disposition of solid drilling waste but also produce materials that can be safely used in high-quality, civil engineering structures, such as road and drill pads – critical infrastructure at many drill sites. Additionally, Scott’s processes meet the recycling and/or treatment definitions of the EPA and API waste hierarchy.
The new name is effective immediately and will be applied to all of the company's products and services.
