AUSTIN, TX, Feb 28, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) —
Omni Water Solutions, Inc., an emerging technology company focused
on delivering mobile water treatment platforms for water treatment
and re-use, has secured $7.9 million in Series A financing. The round
was led by Austin Ventures and also included family office investors
connected to land, oil, and gas in the Eagle Ford Shale region of
Texas. Pasadera Capital represented Omni in this transaction.
Proceeds from the financing will support the company’s plans to build
and deploy its HIPPO(TM) treatment units for oil and gas operations
where water can be treated and re-used instead of lost to disposal.

Omni Water Solutions was founded in 2010 and has developed a
patent-pending system, called Octozone(TM), with real-time sense and
respond automation that allows for the treatment of high volume,
contaminated water supplies. Omni’s mobile platforms, which feature
this technology, can treat water to the level required by the user
and deliver consistent water quality despite rapid variations in
contaminant levels. This consistent water quality simplifies and
streamlines the well completion process for more predictable results
and lower costs.

“Omni has an industry-leading approach, which has resulted in
successful pilot tests with several marquee exploration and
production operators,” said Clark Jernigan, Venture Partner at Austin
Ventures. “We believe that as domestic energy exploration continues
to expand, Omni’s advanced technology will become increasingly
important to companies that are looking for economical solutions to
water conservation and re-use.”

“This investment validates Omni’s strategy to provide a technology
with built-in intelligence that automatically adjusts to
ever-changing oilfield conditions,” said Warren Sumner, CEO of Omni
Water Solutions. “This capability makes our HIPPO(TM) units more
durable and easier to operate, providing operators a superior
approach to making better use of our scarce water resources.”
