PEG Finalizes JV to Deploy Coiled Tubing Units in Mexico

Production Enhancement Group, Inc. has finalized a joint venture agreement with Grupo Creatica, S.A. de C.V.

The joint venture company, named Wise Latina, is 51% owned by Grupo Creatica and 49% owned by PEG and will market, sell and support well intervention systems and services in Mexico under PEG's trademarked Wise brand. The joint venture will immediately begin constructing six Wise multifunction coiled tubing units for deployment in Mexico. The units are being funded by or through Grupo Creatica. The Wise units will be custom-configured for each target location and will feature the latest Wise patented technology, including site-generated nitrogen capabilities.

Philip C. Crawford, PEG's Chief Executive Officer, said, "We believe our multifunction well intervention technology can play a key role as Mexico focuses on restoring production from mature fields. With their excellent reputation, their financial strength, and their experience in oil and gas and operations in Mexico, Grupo Creatica is an ideal partner for us. We look forward to working with them."
