Stallion Builds Presence in West Texas, Opens Shop in Eastern Hemisphere

Stallion Oilfield Services Ltd. has completed the acquisition of La Mission Rentals located in Odessa, Texas. La Mission adds over 90 workforce accommodation units and related equipment to Stallion's existing fleet and strengthens its position in the Permian Basin.

"The acquisition of La Mission continues our strategy of becoming the market leader in each geographic area we operate in," stated Craig Johnson, Stallion's chief executive officer. "The additional equipment and personnel allows us to better serve our customer base in this prolific basin."

Stallion also announced the formation of Stallion Offshore International B.V. The new business unit will be headquartered in Beverijk, Holland and is strategically located to take advantage of the resurgence in the North Sea and other offshore markets.

"Our offshore accommodations division, Abbeville Offshore Quarters, is a leading provider of offshore workforce accommodations and other modular buildings to the global oil and gas industry," remarked Craig Johnson. "Opening an office in the eastern hemisphere will enable us to better serve those customers pursuing projects worldwide. These projects require significant temporary manpower, sometimes in excess of 400 technicians, during production hookup, and we intend to partner with clients to satisfy this growing demand for temporary offshore accommodations."

Tommy Putnam, offshore division president, noted, "Our new international division will be led by Jacco van Eerde who comes to us most recently from Fabricom Oil & Gas BV, a division of SUEZ Energy Services, a European leader in installation and technical services. Jacco has an extensive background in offshore operations that includes all phases of project management. He will be a great asset as we position ourselves to take advantage of international developmental activity."

In a related note, Stallion also announced the acquisition of Suttee Enterprises in Maysville, Oklahoma. Suttee is a supplier of surface rental equipment used in oilfield operations and will be integrated into Stallion's existing business in Elk City, OK. Founder Leland "Butch" Suttee has been retained by Stallion and will remain active in the business.

Its range of critical wellsite services includes onshore and offshore workforce accommodations, surface rental equipment, solids control, communication services, site construction, rig relocation and heavy equipment hauling.
