Boom! Oil field Services Company is Moving Operations to San Angelo
SAN ANGELO, TX — US Well Services, LLC (USWS) announced today it will begin operating a high pressure, high rate fracturing fleet servicing the Wolfcamp and Southern Eagle Ford Shale plays out of San Angelo.
One of their current fleets from the Northeast U.S. will be moving to San Angelo, beginning operations in mid-February 2018. Initially this will involve one and could grow to a second fleet in the future, depending on demand.
USWS provides high-pressure, hydraulic fracturing services in unconventional oil and natural gas basins. Both our conventional (diesel) and Clean Fleet® (electric) hydraulic fracturing fleets are among the most reliable and highest performing fleets in the industry, with the capability to meet the most demanding pressure and pump rate requirements.
The announcement was made by the San Angelo Chamber of Commerce and through Mayor Brenda Gunter.
“We are pleased to have US Well Services join our business community. We know that San Angelo is perfectly positioned to serve the west Texas oil service industry,” said Mayor Gunter. “We have a great quality of life in San Angelo so it is easy to understand when a business is making a decision to relocate or to open a new facility why San Angelo is the best option from a business as well as a personal perspective.”
Mike Boyd, Chamber President looks forward to a robust oil market for the West Texas Intermediate price per barrel that will encourage USWS to expand here.
“The arrival of a highly-skilled, national well services company to San Angelo is further evidence that oil producers are being strengthened by the steady and measured increase in the price of West Texas Intermediate crude,” Boyd said. “Unlike the boom of 2014, this is a more durable and progressive resurgence of WTI. The efficiencies have increased greatly and the exportation of crude oil has also been a game-changer. We are proud that US Well Services has selected San Angelo as their base of operations for the region. We think they will be very pleased with their new strategic location decision.”
Michael Looney, VP of Economic Development for the Chamber, continuously is selling the local community as a great business climate to locate to C-level executives of large companies, considers this a win-win for all parties involved.
“San Angelo is a growing hub for energy service companies. We are greatly supportive of US Well Service’s decision to establish a significant presence in San Angelo and we look forward to our continued working relationship with local and national company leadership,” Looney said. “Our proximity to the Permian Basin allows companies like US Well Services to thrive as they provide critical support functions for energy producers in the Permian plays. We want US Well Services to be very successful in their new area of operation.”
Currently operating in the Marcellus and Utica shale regions of Ohio, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania, the company is also operating in the Cotton Valley, Austin Chalk, and Eagle Ford Shale plays out of Bryan.
USWS continues to evaluate additional opportunities with existing and new customers to expand our operations throughout the United States.
USWS has leased a facility in San Angelo and will be hiring a number of office and shop employees to support Operations. Interested applicants should go to the USWS website and complete an on-line Employment Application based on their job interests.
