RCW Energy Services likes to make a good impression.
In anticipation of opening a new office here this month that will eventually create 40 local jobs, the water transfer company donated $10,000 to provide computers and workstations for Pleasanton’s planned new library.
RCW President Glenn O. Young presented the unexpected contribution to Pleasanton Mayor Clinton J. Powell at the Jan. 17 council meeting.
“We’re expanding our operations in the Eagle Ford Shale and wanted to demonstrate in a concrete way that we intend to be good citizens of our adopted community,” Young said.
“We are delighted to welcome RCW Energy Services to Pleasanton and are most appreciative of this significant contribution to a project so near and dear to our hearts,” said Mayor Powell. “We also appreciate the local jobs being created and look forward to working with RCW in the future.”
“Just a couple of weeks before Christmas, I received a call from RCW Energy Services asking where they might make a meaningful contribution to the community as a goodwill gesture,” said City Manager Bruce Pearson. “Our new library and community center was a perfect fit. This was a wonderful holiday surprise for which we’re extremely grateful.”
Young introduced RCW’s Pleasanton Regional Operations Manager Erik Schaal to city officials and said the company plans an April grand opening for its new office at 4741 County Road 43, just outside the city. Schaal, a University of Texas at Tyler graduate, plans to move to the area with his wife and children after their third child is born in February.
RCW provides efficient, environmentally responsible water transfer services to the oil and gas industry for use in fracking operations, temporarily linking local water sources to drill sites. Hydraulic fracturing has provided the key to unlocking vast oil and gas resources in tight rock formations such as the Eagle Ford Shale. The company is headquartered in Carrolton, Texas, and operates in Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana.
