Our story

our history

Chairman Joe Mitchell and CEO/President Clane LaCrosse founded Bosque Systems in 2007 in Glen Rose, Texas, to meet the need for more saltwater disposal capacity in the booming Barnett Shale – the catalyst for what has now matured into a total water management company. Profitable within three months of building our first saltwater disposal well (SWD), Bosque expanded its operations by developing additional SWD sites in the Barnett shale and also growing its infrastructure footprint into the Bakken and Eagle Ford regions.

After much success, Bosque was poised to expand in 2010 to offer additional services, strengthening its position as a full water management expert. Addressing freshwater shortages, Bosque began working on various water sourcing and recycling projects and developed a green treatment solution, DIONIX, to eradicate the presence of bacteria within the sources of water used for hydraulic fracturing.

In recent years, the company continued to expand with the launch of several new technologies including ScaleStop (scale inhibitor),  OptiFluids (frac fluid mix tailored to the conditions of each well) and other innovative technologies and chemistries.

In 2018 Bosque launched its pressure pumping service line to address acid jobs, toe preps, pump downs and introduce our Well Shock technology – acidization plus our proprietary DIONIX equipment, technology and customized well designs – to bring legacy wells back to life.

Never satisfied with standing still whether oil prices are high or low, Bosque continues to innovate and develop new technologies to best meet the needs of our operators. Our objective is clear – to provide economical tailored water management solutions to operators that increase their operating margins through cost-effective methods that minimize lease operating expenses and boost reservoir productivity.
