A deal was signed March 17 to establish the oil and gas industry’s first comprehensive environmental cleaning, decontamination and disposal service. The Louisiana-based Ecoserv is expected to create more than 100 new jobs, many of which will be at the company’s Lafayette headquarters and other facilities in the Gulf Coast region.
Ecoserv was formed when Lariat Partners merged Houston-based Newpark Environmental Services LLC (NES), the region’s leader in offshore waste disposal, with Offshore Cleaning Systems LLC (OCS), the Gulf of Mexico’s leader in offshore cleaning services.
Ecoserv offers fully integrated, cost-effective and environmentally friendly specialized cleaning, waste management and disposal services for the upstream oil and gas industry.
Kenny DesOrmeaux, founder and CEO of OCS, will also serve as CEO for Ecoserv, which will operate from 14 locations throughout the Gulf Coast and Permian Basin of West Texas.
“Ecoserv is founded on technical innovation, safety and a commitment to both the environment and our industry,” DesOrmeaux said. “We’re focused on creating ease-of-use and profitability for all of our current and future customers.”
