DALLAS, TX — BP Energy Partners, LLC (“BPEP”) is pleased to announce the acquisition of Encino Environmental Services, LLC (“Encino” or the “Company”), an environmental consulting and services business that enables compliance with government regulations along with providing carbon emissions benchmarking and mitigation strategies to achieve Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) goals.

Encino was founded in 2010 to provide a broad array of environmental and regulatory compliance solutions within the upstream and midstream energy sectors in addition to marine, power, industrial, mining, and other industries. The Company’s mobile testing laboratories allow for rapid deployment to meet customers emissions testing needs and regulatory requirements.
