• Modern fleet of equipment designed for horizontal wells. Our service fleet is predominantly comprised of equipment designed to optimize recovery from unconventional wells. We believe that our modern fleet of quality equipment will allow us to provide a high level of service to our customers and capitalize on future growth in the unconventional resource plays that we serve.
  • Strategic geographic positioning, including a primary presence in the Utica Shale and the Permian Basin. We currently operate facilities and service centers to support our operations in major unconventional resource plays in the United States, including the Utica Shale in Eastern Ohio, the Permian Basin in West Texas, the Marcellus Shale in Pennsylvania, the Granite Wash in Oklahoma and Texas, the Cana Woodford Shale and the Cleveland Sand in Oklahoma, the Eagle Ford Shale in South Texas and the oil sands in Alberta, Canada. We believe our geographic positioning within active oil and natural gas liquids resource plays will benefit us strategically as activity increases in these unconventional resource plays.
  • Long-term contractual and other basin-level relationships with a stable customer base. We are party to a long-term contract with Gulfport to provide pressure pumping services and natural sand proppant services through September 2018. In addition, our operational division heads and field managers have formed long-term relationships with our customer base. We believe these contractual and other relationships help provide us a more stable and growth-oriented client base in the unconventional shale markets that we currently serve. Our customers include large independent oil and natural gas exploration and production companies. Our top five customers for the year ended December 31, 2016, representing 80% of our revenue, were Gulfport, Japan Canada Oil Sands Limited referred to as Oil Sands Limited, Rice Energy, Inc., Surge Operating, LLC, and Hilcorp Energy Corporation.
  • Experienced management and operating team. Our operational division heads have an extensive track record in the oilfield services business with an average of over 35 years of oilfield services experience. In addition, our field managers have expertise in the geological basins in which they operate and understand the regional challenges that our customers face. We believe their knowledge of our industry and business lines enhances our ability to provide innovative, client-focused and basin-specific customer service, which we also believe strengthens our relationships with our customers.
