Resource West was formed in 2006 when Jack Hays, CEO, saw the need for our clients to be able to evaporate water to help reduce the cost of disposal fees.

Jack — the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year for 2012 — has been in business with the oilfield since 1972 and has a strong reputation of success and honest business. With his expertise, our highly-qualified staff, and over 100 years of experience, Resource West can help your business find the best evaporator and products to suit your business' needs and budget.

With a history of unparallelled service, support and safety, Resource West continues to provide expert service to get the job done efficiently and effectively!

In 2012, Resource West started a line of modular aboveground storage tanks to assist our clients with hydraulic fracturing needs. Capable of storing anywhere from 9,000 – 53,000 bbls in a fraction of the space as traditional storage systems, Commander Series aboveground storage tanks provide advantages in unconventional plays for production companies, consultants, and water management companies with a safe, reliable, cost effective, and environmentally responsible containment solution.

The tanks include OSHA approved stairs and landing with handrail and removable interior ladder, one 12' suction capable of handling up to 120 barrels/minute, four 4' inlet discharge lines, and two 6' inlet discharge lines.
