TWMA Launches U.S. Expansion

April 13, 2012
Will now produce American-made equipment at new Houston facility

TWMA, a provider of integrated drilling waste management and environmental solutions, has launched its U.S. expansion with the opening of the company’s newest manufacturing base in Houston. The new facility will allow TWMA to manufacture American-made equipment and meet growing demand for its services in the United States and around the world.

“This new office has the potential to change the dynamics of the entire company,” said Ian Nicolson, TWMA’s vice president of the Americas. “We’re bringing a whole new range of services and technologies to the U.S. oil and gas industry. We can save operators $30 to $40 thousand dollars per well by handling and treating their drilling wastes with our specialized waste management solutions.”  

Demand for TWMA’s waste management solutions is booming. The company has already won several U.S. contracts with oil and gas operators, which has helped fuel the expansion. 

Operating both offshore and onshore, TWMA handles and treats drill cuttings and associated oil industry wastes. Using state-of-the-art technology, drilling wastes are recovered, recycled and reused, recovering significant operator costs while minimizing environmental impact.

While initial plans focus primarily on expanding in the U.S. market, having a Houston-based facility will allow TWMA to extend its reach into Canada and South America, Nicolson said.

Through the Houston office, TWMA will increase the production capability for its entire range of waste management solutions to service the U.S. and international markets.  This will include the TCC RotoTruck and TCC RotoMill, which are currently utilized globally to thermally process drilling wastes onshore and offshore, and supporting equipment including vacuum systems, dryers and TWMA’s cuttings collection and distribution system (CCDS).

TWMA has been operational in the United States since 2008, but the new Houston facility will be the company’s first regional manufacturing site. Currently, 20 employees have been hired to work at the new facility. TWMA expects to triple this number by July and plans to have 200 to 300 employees hired in the next 24 months.
