Texas Energy Group, LLC (TEG) Affiliate Makes Headway In EagleFord Shale Salt Water Disposal Marketplace

Texas Energy Group, LLC (TEG) recently announced the formation of its affiliate, 5 Star SWD, LLC, a private equity management firm capitalizing on the growing commercial salt water disposal and injection well marketplace.   


Austin, TX – October 16, 2014- Texas Energy Group, LLC (TEG) recently announced the formation of an affiliate private equity management firm, 5 Star SWD, LLC (5 Star). 5 Star is a Texas Limited Liability company formed to manage investments specific to the salt water disposal (SWD) arena.

Since 5 Star’s recent entrance into the SWD marketplace, they have already been able to secure and permit a variety of top-notch locations throughout the EagleFord Shale. Texas Energy Group’s President, Waylan Johnson, credits 5 Star’s ability to secure such quality acquisitions to the long standing industry relationships and strong reputations of its Managing Partners.

“It is no surprise to me that 5 Star has been able to hit the ground running and so quickly position itself in the forefront of the SWD marketplace within the EagleFord shale. ALL Consulting and Trend Environmental are both experts in this arena and have created a strong name/presence for themselves over the years. With a couple of their founding members now acting as Managing Partners of 5 Star and spearheading 5 Star’s entrance into this area, we are truly able to penetrate the market unlike any other newly formed entity. In a way, it is as if we are being given the red carpet treatment into the hottest yet most exclusive trend,” further stated Mr. Johnson, who also serves as President of 5 Star SWD, LLC.

Greg Casey is Vice President and co-founder of 5 Star SWD, LLC as well as ALL Consulting ( Throughout his impressive 29 years in the water consulting business, he has consulted throughout 15 states, the North Sea, Middle East, New Zealand and South America. Having created a strong presence in the EagleFord Shale over the last 3 years, Mr. Casey and ALL Consulting now work for 80% of the top 40 oil companies in the EagleFord. Mr. Casey’s expertise has also brought him to testify as an expert witness in front of the Texas Attorney General and the United States Senate.

John Kelly & Kurt Knewitz are both co-founders of 5 Star SWD, LLC and business partners in Trend Energy Partners. Together, they have a long standing history of land and mineral management experience as well as M&A experience. Considered highly respected within the industry, they bring numerous relationships to the table with both major and small corporate oil companies.

5 Star will be focusing its efforts mainly within Texas but has plans to move into the Appalachian & Williston Basin within the next year.
