  • Lease options (lease cost applies to purchase)

  • Scalable for easy ramp-up & ramp down

  • Flexible volume capacities

  • Quick connects between modules

  • Saves early production water haul costs

  • Remote flow-rate monitoring and controls

  • Synchronization with chemical injection

  • Compatible with customer water management systems

  • Portable for separating infield oil & FRAC ponds

  • Mobile truck off-loading systems

  • Powered by permanent or temporary sources

  • Environmental compliant containment


Custom designed to streamline the SWD configuration utilizing a patented oil and solids removal process, featuring fewer tanks onsite (1/2 the standard) coupled with a more reliable controls solution. These SWDs have a smaller, compact footprint requiring less electrical equipment, valves & piping. The benefits of partnering with MBA for SWD needs are the condensed layout, enhanced delivery and installation timeframes, lower capital costs, and increased operational efficiencies.



Our team of experts collaborates closely with you to customize solutions that optimize oil recovery according to your specific operational requirements.

  • Enhanced Oil-Water Separation: Achieve an average oil content of less than 30 ppm in water, enhancing both the quality of your pad site and your profitability.

  • Rapid Return on Investment: The cost-effectiveness of our systems typically results in a full return on investment within a matter of months.

  • Chemical-Free SWD Process: Our systems are designed to eliminate the need for additional chemicals in your Salt Water Disposal (SWD) process, reducing both costs and environmental impact.

  • Superior Operational Efficiency: With 30 times the efficiency of traditional gun barrel systems, the Oil Bandit significantly streamlines your operation.

  • Increased Recovery Rates: Experience up to a fivefold improvement in recovery rates, maximizing the value extracted from each well.

  • Extended Well Longevity: Benefit from improved water clarity that minimizes well damage, thereby extending the operational life of your wells.
