Chuck Horton

Founder

Mr. Horton entered the oil and gas industry as a roughneck for Texaco and various other rig contractors. After gaining experience in the industry, he started a trucking company hauling cement and other items, related and unrelated to the energy industry. That company is still ongoing. In 2008, Mr. Horton began building locations and completing construction projects related to oil and gas exploration located in Southeast Oklahoma, Western Oklahoma, and North Texas. This remains a core portion of his business ventures. As a part of the construction offerings of Mr. Horton’s company, Blackhawk, began offering oil and gas rentals, roustabouts, water hauling, disposal, and pipeline construction services. Mr. Horton invented and patented his first two environmental oilfield equipment offerings under the corporate name Environmental Recovery Solutions, employing his diesel recovery systems in Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana, and Pennsylvania. That system is still active in both LA and PA, generating revenues up to $33MM annually. In 2018, Mr. Horton bought rights to, re-engineered and made mobile the “AquaCat” water treatment system. This business has received the only mobile surface application of produced water permits in the State of Oklahoma and has three patents associated with its function.

Today Mr. Horton is the owner of six businesses, ranging from personal insurance to oilfield services. Mr. Horton retains five awarded patents on environmental products related to upstream oil and gas, with applications in many other industries.
