Thunder Basin Environmental Consulting, Inc. was formed in 1993 providing air, water and soil compliance services to the Rocky Mountain Oil & Gas Industry. Initial air quality management specialization evolved to include water and soil quality management after several years of providing cost-effective environmental compliance to major and minor Oil & Gas producers. Continued air, soil and water environmental compliance services led to invention of a coal-bed methane produced water purification process receiving U.S. Patent No. 7,081,204 protection July 2006. Five successful years of application in the Wyoming PRB and trademark as CleanSweepBarium(TM) was followed by 500% expansion of operating produced water purification stations (www.tbecOnline.com) providing continous discharge water purification for Clean Water Act and Wyoming DEQ, WQD compliance. Today TBEC , Inc. is a leader in Wyoming for providing air, water and soil compliance support in the Rocky Mountain Region.
