EcoStim achieves record production level in June for its U.S. “super-fleet”
HOUSTON, TEXAS, July 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eco-Stim Energy Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: ESES) (“EcoStim” or the “Company”) announced today that it has completed a Company record number of frac stages in the month of June 2018 following the implementation of its collaborative “super-fleet” concept. Since combining EcoStim’s best operational personnel and assets, and adopting the efficiency driven processes around its “super-fleet” concept on May 30, 2018, EcoStim has completed over 140 frac stages, including a new record of 130 stages during the month of June 2018. This production exceeded EcoStim’s previous monthly record of 99 stages which was accomplished during April 2018, an increase of 31%.
Barry Ekstrand, EcoStim’s Chief Operations Officer, stated, “While this level of efficiency is a significant improvement over our previous record, what is more impressive is that each of the wells completed during June were single well pads which required a rig down/rig up process between each pad. As we move forward, we expect to see more multi-well pads and as we strive for even better efficiencies, we expect to work in close collaboration with our customer and other third-party suppliers.”
J. Chris Boswell, EcoStim’s Chief Executive Officer, added “I am very proud of our entire team as they have fully embraced our super-fleet concept and executed on our plan to improve the efficiency of our operations. We intend to work hard to continue driving completion efficiencies to new levels.”
