Midland, TX – Onward Resources, a leading engineering and construction company specializing in the oil and gas industry, has secured a significant contract to provide “concept-to-commissioning” services for a mission critical water transfer pipeline in the Permian Basin. The project centers around the engineering and construction of 21-mile-long recycled water transfer pipeline which will support fracking operations.
