Triple N's highly regarded 5-rig well abandonment operations when combined with Basic's 7-rig operation will make us by far the largest well abandonment company in the Permian Basin, where more than 2,500 wells were permitted for abandonment in 2007. In addition, Triple N's well-known reputation as a quality provider of cementing services throughout west Texas and eastern New Mexico provides a firm foundation for expansion ofour pressure pumping activities in those markets. Triple N is a prime example of the type of companies we believe will continue to provide meaningful growth opportunities for Basic Energy Services throughout our footprint."
