SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- July 15, 2013

Nuverra Environmental Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: NES) (“Nuverra”) today announced
that it has entered into an agreement with Halliburton (NYSE: HAL) to advance
the treatment and recycling of produced water to be re-used in the hydraulic
fracturing process.

“We are excited about this new agreement with Halliburton. Maximizing the
treatment and recycling of water used in hydraulic fracturing is a key
initiative for the industry and an area of strategic focus for our company as
we expand our environmental treatment and recycling solutions,” said Mark D.
Johnsrud, Nuverra’s Chief Executive Officer.

“We will be working closely with Halliburton in the Bakken Shale to utilize
their H20 Forward^SM Service for water re-use and recycling. We believe this
agreement will further expand our full-cycle, closed-loop environmental
solutions package. Halliburton is one of the world’s leading technology
providers to the oil and gas industry, and we are honored to be in agreement
in this water treatment and recycling initiative,” said Johnsrud.

H20 Forward^SM Service allows customers to recycle waste streams of produced
water for use in well completions. The service formulates stable fracture
fluids that have the ability to work with any waste stream, including water
containing total dissolved solids with values as high as 285,000 parts per
million, for use in hydraulic fracturing operations.

To date, Halliburton has completed more than 60 wells and 280 fracturing
stages in the Permian and Bakken using the H20 Forward^SM Service, which
significantly reduces the amount of fresh water required in hydraulic

“Our goal is to help the industry use less fresh water. We have advanced the
technology but understand that logistics remains a challenge. By working with
Nuverra, we are confident we can help reduce the fresh water used for any
customer with net economic and environmental benefits under the H20 Forward
initiative,” said Walter Dale, Halliburton’s Strategic Global Business Manager
for Water Solutions.

Nuverra and Halliburton will work together in the Bakken Shale area to offer
the H20 Forward^SM Service to exploration and production companies. For
hydraulic fracturing operations conducted by Halliburton using the H20
Forward^SM Service, Nuverra will provide the logistics, transportation,
storage, and overall fluid management.
