Randy Jones and his dad, a petroleum engineer built their first saltwater disposal facility in 1980. They recognized the opportunity being created by the EPA’S mandate to protect surface drinking water from the improper disposal of oil industry water by-product. During the 80’S Randy and his dad built twenty six SWDS, making them the largest operator in the Permian Basin. RBJ sold its SWD portfolio in 1989, spawning several of its current competitors. Since that time, RBJ has continued to develop and operate SWDS in the permian basin. Today, RBJ operates 20 state-of-the-art SWDS in the Permian Basin, and plans to continue developing new SWDS as needed to support the growth of the oil industry.
Today RBJ is owned by a select group of partners with deep industry experience. RBJ has proud heritage of being a family run company with many of its employees being first or second generation family members. This creates a sense of pride, competition and camaraderie that drives our success.

GOOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
The saltwater disposal industry as we know it today was created as a result of the EPA’S mandate to protect surface drinking water. Prior to 1980 there were no regulations requiring oil producers to safely dispose of the water by-product they generated thought normal oil production. Prior to these regulations it was common for oil producers to dispose of this toxic water by-product by sprinkling it onto adjacent lands or allowing it to run into nearby lakes or streams.
Saltwater disposal facilities are designed specifically to insure the protections of surface drinking water. Deep wells (generally 1 – 3 miles deep) are drilled through multiple layers of impermeable rock to make sure the water doesn’t find its way back up to the surface. In addition, multiple layers of steel and concrete casing are used for added protection against water leakage near the surface. The net result is that saltwater disposal facilities allow the saltwater produced through normal oil production to safely be returned to where it came from.
