Major Oil & Gas Producers Site - Horn River, British Columbia
This was Ridgelines first commercial operation on a gas shale formation in Northern British Columbia. The harsh conditions of the location allowed us to validate the robust nature of our technology. Due to the decline in natural gas prices the client has postponed its expansion plans in this area. Ridgeline expects to continue operations when the client re-initiates development of the area. Ridgeline continues to work with the same client in the Leonard Shale area of the Southwest United States.
Major Oil & Gas Producers Site - Leonard Shale, New Mexico

Industrial Waste Water Pre-treatment Facility - Los Angeles, California
The Santa Fe Springs California facility is Ridgelines first industrial waste water treatment facility.

Industrial Waste Water Treatment and Oil Recovery - Carthage, Missouri
The Missouri facility is Ridgelines second waste water treatment and beneficial oil recovery facility. The facility accepts waste water containing recoverable oils that are extracted and processed for beneficial re-use.
Kerr Energy Services Facilities - Southwestern United States
Ridgeline has an agreement in place with Kerr Energy Services to treat water alongside salt water disposal wells. Produced and flow back water from local operations are trucked to these sites and charged a tipping fee for disposal. From here the water will either be discharged or treated then stored and sold back to the industry for beneficial reuse in hydraulic fracturing operations.
Recurring Revenue Business Models
Ridgeline benefits from revenue generation by way of two business models: multi-user and on-site installations.
Examples of our multi-user sites are our Santa Fe Springs facility and Kerr Energy Services sites.
The Santa Fe Springs facility, located just outside Los Angeles, California, is a municipal pre-treatment facility for industrial waste water. This site is centrally located and accepts waste water from hundreds of surrounding waste water generators. A tipping fee is charged to drop off the water which is stored, treated and discharged into the municipal sewer system.
The Kerr Energy Services facilities accept produced and flow back water from the oil and gas industry in the Southwestern United States. These sites accept water from numerous O&G producers and services companies operating in the area. Ridgeline will receive a processing fee for treating the water which can then be sold back for use in fracking operations. Revenue will be generated from these water sales as well as sales of any oil that is recovered in the treatment process.
Examples of our on-site installations would be our initial commercial operation in the Horn River, British Columbia and our subsequent site with the same client in New Mexico. These are semi-permanent installations set up at a single clients oil production centre. Recurring processing fees are charged to the client to treat the produced water generated with the oil production or the frack flowback water.
