Nuverra Environmental Solutions (NYSE: NES ) , known until last Friday as Heckmann, began its first day with a new name by announcing a brand-new acquisition.
Nuverra will be acquiring a 60-acre, oil-field-disposal landfill from Ideal Oilfield Disposal, located in McKenzie County, N.D. The landfill could have a potential capacity of 5.8 million cubic yards.
The acquisition is just another sign that Nuverra is building a huge moat around itself when it comes to providing the energy industry with all the water services it needs to drill for oil and natural gas, all while minimizing environmental impact, and trying to recycle as much water as possible.
The acquisition will increase Nuverra's capital expenditures by $6 million-$8 million, but the company expects the site to "produce approximately $18 to $20 million in annual run-rate revenue." Paying $8 million today to make $20 million per year consistently into the future sounds like a great deal for the company.
