Select Buys Agua Libre Assets

Read Time: 2 mins

The Houston-based provider of sustainable water and chemical solutions to the US unconventional oil and gas industry, Select Energy Services, has entered into an asset purchase agreement for the acquisition of substantially all of the assets of Agua Libre Midstream, and other water-related assets, operations and assumed liabilities from Basic Energy Services.

The asset purchase agreement constitutes a “stalking horse” bid in a sale process being conducted under Section 363 of Chapter 11 of the US Bankruptcy Code. As such, the company’s acquisition of Agua Libre remains subject to approval by the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas Houston Division, and is subject to court-approved bidding procedures, including the potential receipt of competing offers for Agua Libre and certain other of Basic’s assets and operations at auction.


It is expected that the sale process will be completed during the second half of 2021 and the business is expected to remain operational throughout the process.

Based in Fort Worth, Texas, Agua Libre is a leading provider of water midstream, logistics and production services to the oil and gas industry, including operations in Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and North Dakota.

If consummated, the Agua Libre acquisition would significantly expand Select’s produced water infrastructure footprint and water reuse capabilities, particularly across the Permian Basin, and further increase the company’s revenue weighting towards production-related services and solutions.
