Badger Mining Corporation announced today the opening of another fully owned and operated transload facility in Erick, Oklahoma. This new location compliments the large and growing distribution footprint of Badger Mining Corporation. The Erick transload facility will open in December 2015 and will primarily serve the Anadarko Basin. The Anadarko Basin has a rich history and diverse set of assets. Formations currently being targeted include: the Granite Wash, Tonkawa, Cottage Grove, Hogshooter, Cleveland and Marmaton. While not as prolific as plays like the Eagle Ford or certain targets in the Permian Basin, the stacked nature of the Anadarko Basin, and the quality of the reserves it contains, speak to its potential moving forward. Through our process of identifying long-term areas to commit to, this area has been identified as an under-served market where we hope to add significant value by providing excellent service and availability.
“Our investment in Erick, OK will help our customers cut cost, but it will do so much more in terms of service quality and safety,” said Adam Katz, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “The biggest risk we take as an industry occurs every time we get behind the wheel. Getting closer to the wellhead means fewer trucks spending less time on the road which is a big win for everybody.”
