Pilot Flying J, the fourth-largest tanker fleet in the US, has further leveraged its fleet with a joint venture formed with Produced Water Transfer LLC and Complete Vacuum and Rental LLC.

The joint venture, operating under the name PWT, will also strengthen its network of salt water gathering pipelines and disposal facilities for the oil and gas sector in Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas, according to a company release.

Through the PWT joint venture, Pilot Flying J acquired Bridger Environmental LLC, a salt water transportation and disposal company, from propane supplier Ferrellgas Partners, L.P.

Pilot Flying J also acquired Ferrellgas Partners, L.P.’s crude transportation business operating under their Bridger Transportation subsidiary.

Through the deal, Pilot Flying J and PWT will expand their tanker fleet and acquire 10 salt water disposal wells and two crude oil pipeline injection terminals in Wyoming.

This acquisition will make Pilot Flying J one of the largest third-party crude hauling fleets in the country, with more than 500 trucks on the road serving the oil and gas industry.
