Design-Build

The legacy facilities in Jal, N.M., that had been servicing disposal of the Exploration & Production (E&P) of fossil fuels no longer met New Mexico’s heightened standards established by the implementation of Part 36 Rules. Parkhill was at the forefront of developing the initial facilities, including the Northern Delaware Basin Landfill, to be permitted and operated under Part 36. The client Oilfield Water Logistics (OWL) has been a leader in the management of produced waters from E&P in the Permian Basin for over a decade, and Parkhill has been supporting their efforts to manage all waste generated from the process safely. After the evaluation of 100 square miles of Southwest Lea County and Southeast Eddy County, a suitable site on NM 128 in Southern Lea County was chosen for the new Surface Waste Management Facility.


The Northern Delaware Basin Landfill is the first full-service E&P disposal facility developed in New Mexico and sets the standard for what an E&P Surface Waste Management Facility should accomplish. The facility can accept all drilling fluids and other solid E&P wastes, processing them and providing them with a permanent disposal solution that addresses any environmental concerns. The diligent separation of liquids from the drilling fluid solids is designed to minimize groundwater contamination potential associated with the permanent disposal option of landfill interment. With the ability to manage the produced water that represents over ninety percent of the materials processed through recycling or other OWL Facilities near this location, the Northern Delaware Basin Landfill and associated processing facilities can serve this area of the Permian Basin for decades to come.


The engineering solutions at the Northern Delaware Basin Landfill provide an efficient, convenient, and economical process for OWL to operate and maintain. Further operational considerations were taken to ensure public and customer safety by traffic improvements to ensure safe, controlled access to and from one of the busiest roads in Southeast New Mexico, electronic pre-filing of reports facilitating recordkeeping and rapid access to the facility, multiple covered unloading and washout bays at the Liquid Processing Facility to speed unloading, multiple unloading and washout bays at the drilling Mud Drying Pad to ensure rapid vehicle throughput and all-weather access to the landfill to facilitate timely disposal.
