March 18, 2013
Reflecting the development of barge transport for moving fluids from natural gas exploration and production activities, GreenHunter Water, LLC recently bought a 10.8 acre barging terminal facility in Wheeling, West Virginia. The terminal facility was previously used as a gasoline storage facility and will be converted into a water treatment, recycling, and condensate-handling logistics terminal. The facility is scheduled to begin operation in the third quarter of this year. The price for the barge facility was $750,000, and is touted as being the first of its kind in the country. GreenHunter Water is a subsidiary of GreenHunter Energy, Inc., a water resource, waste management and environmental services company.
