Texas company eyes new oil waste facility in New Mexico

EUNICE, N.M. (AP) - A Texas company is a proposing new oil waste facility in southeastern New Mexico.
           
The Hobbs News-Sun reports (https://goo.gl/3bkv2s) Lubbock-based CK Disposal wants to build a 317-acre surface waste oil management plant in eastern Lea County.
           
The proposed waste management facility is intended for the permanent disposal of exempt and non-exempt/non-hazardous oil field waste. It will include a liquid waste processing area, a possible deep well water injection unit, and a landfill.
           
New Mexico's Oil Conservation Division was scheduled to hold a public hearing on the proposal this week.
