AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Imperial Resources, Inc. (OTCQB: IPRC) and its wholly owned subsidiary, Imperial Oil & Gas, Inc. (together the "Company", "Imperial") is pleased to announce that weekend operations at its Green Tide Disposal Facility ("Green Tide") have commenced to satisfy demand. The Company also expects to repair and install the second main disposal pump to increase downhole disposal rates.
In response to demand, Green Tide opened for weekend operations for the first time on Saturday and Sunday October 20/21, 2012, attracting levels of traffic in line with weekdays. Weekend operations are planned to continue. To date, no major problems have been encountered during commercial operations. Work is scheduled over the coming weeks to bring the second offloading bay online to keep customer waiting times to a minimum. Work is also planned to complete the automation of the computer systems.
Demand for water disposal in the area is strong and the rapid build of business at Green Tide demonstrates its position and access is highly attractive to water haulers. Green Tide is already attracting disposal business near to its current operational limit, necessitating an increase in operational capacity.
To address this, the second main disposal pump damaged during the lightning strike in October 2011 is expected to be repaired and reinstalled. Given the level of demand for disposal a second pump is now required as a backup and to increase downhole flow rates, as customer disposal rates into the storage tanks have occasionally approached a level limited by the current downhole pump capacity.

The Oklahoma resource play and Green Tide Water Disposal are two key projects identified as transformational for Imperial.
