K-3BMI, based in Brookshire, Texas, is a merger of two different businesses. K-3 Services, a diverse oilfield services company that focuses on fluid transport, and BMI, a municipal biosolids management contractor. Started in 1981 in South Texas by our, then 20 year old, CEO, Mr. Karlis Ercums III, with an old vacuum truck picking up waste oil from service stations and hauling it to recycling facilities. COO and partner, Mr. Andy Drennan, joined the company in 1990 and primarily focuses on BMI.

The company is now comprised of over 85 trucks and seven facilities spread across Southeast Texas. The foremost focus of the company is the transportation of fluids to and from drilling and completion sites in the Eagle Ford Shale and the Haynesville Shale. However, our trucks are also dispatched on lengthier trips hauling specialty drilling fluids and chemicals to gas and oilfields throughout the United States. We are committed to serving both production and drilling operations with our fleet of equipment available 24/7.


K-3BMI municipal services are based in Brookshire, TX, and we currently serve Houston, Texas, and the surrounding cities within a 150 mile radius. With our fleet of tanker and roll-off trucks, we can perform any needed transfers within and between plants and transport both liquid and dewatered product for disposal or recycling. In addition, we also provide clean out and mobile belt press services. In short, we are equipped to handle the full “cradle to grave” management of biosolids. Our compliance department assures our customers that their biosolids are tested, treated, documented, and recorded to meet TCEQ and EPA standards.

K-3BMI is a company that is proud to have stuck to the family values on which it was founded. Above all, we value our employees and their quality of life. They are the breadwinners of this company and we will continue to put them first. We seek to fulfill the needs of our customer to the best of our ability, and that means getting the job done in a safe, timely manner, and providing trained and knowledgeable employees. Many of our employees have given over 20 years of faithful service to helping build K-3BMI into what it is today.
