Oil and Gas Drilling Waste Data

Are you concerned about

  • large liabilities that oil and gas companies are not reporting on their financial statements,

  • whether oil and gas companies are taking a short-term or long-term view of their environmental liabilities which affects their financials,

  • whether oil and gas companies are greenwashing you about their largest solid waste - drilling waste, or

  • finding new customers as a waste disposal provider?

This information is not directly available. Our data changes this by providing you with the information.

Oil and gas company asset retirement obligation accounts (AROs) are not very detailed and don't include many future liabilities. Because drilling waste creates contamination and is not well regulated, you don't know the real value of oil and gas companies due to it not being in AROs.
Often, oil and gas companies can bury their drilling waste onsite or take it to a landfill, depending upon the state. The differences in costs of these methods averages over 650%. Because this information is not detailed in income statements, you are unaware of the choices being made and its financial implications. These choices in disposal can affect a company's income because drilling waste disposal can account for 10% of drilling costs.
Large volume waste streams are usually reported by companies because they are both financially and environmentally impactful and are usually required to be reported to government agencies. However, drilling waste is not required to be reported by most state governments. This means this waste stream is not usually reported in corporate sustainability reports leaving you unaware of this financially material issue.

Our drilling waste datasets cover all publicly traded oil and gas companies that drill onshore in the United States. They can be used by asset managers, asset owners, banks, insurance companies, the federal government, state governments, and waste disposal companies. Our datasets provide information for seeking excess returns above the market, risk evaluation, screening, portfolio construction, portfolio maintenance, and finding new customers. In fact, we have seen strong correlation between our data and financial metrics and ratios, and customer identification.

Oil and Gas Waste Data
A quarterly dataset that is derived by us that shows the quantity of waste generated by company, waste type, geographic region, waste-management method, and estimated future environmental liability. This product relates directly to oil and gas company balance sheets.
HICO Disposal Cost™ Data
A quarterly dataset that is derived by us that shows the estimated current disposal cost of drilling waste. It also shows the lowest possible disposal cost (floor) and the highest disposal cost (ceiling) for that specific company, waste ID, and state. This product relates directly to oil and gas company income statements.
Oil and Gas Drilling Waste Disclosure Data
This annual dataset assesses the level of disclosure by oil and gas companies regarding their drilling waste generation and disposal practices in their sustainability reports. Our assessment is based on guidance by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).
Texas STF Disposal Data
This is a quarterly dataset that provides information on drilling waste taken to commercial surface waste disposal sites in Texas. The dataset has been cleaned and sorted from public information so that potential users can better understand where drilling waste has been taken for commercial disposal and how much has been taken to each facility.
