Secure Energy Announces $155 Million Capital Budget for 2013

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/06/12 -- Secure Energy Services Inc. ("Secure" or the "Corporation") (TSX:SES) is pleased to announce its 2013 capital budget.

The Corporation's Board of Directors has approved a preliminary 2013 capital budget of $155 million. Included in the $155 million is $15 million of carry over capital from 2012 projects related to the Rocky Mountain House and Judy Creek full service terminals ("FSTs"). The remaining $140 million of the Corporation's capital budget consists of new facilities, expansions and equipment in strategic growth and expansion areas in both Canada and the United States.

The Corporation expects to invest $125 million in the Processing Recovery and Disposal ("PRD") division which is allocated as follows:


--  $115 million for growth capital consisting of three FSTs, two stand-
    alone water disposal facilities (SWDs), two landfills and long lead
    items; 
--  $7 million for expansion capital relating to additional treaters and
    tanks; and 
--  $3 million in sustaining capital for normal course maintenance
    operations.

Secure also expects to invest $15 million into the Drilling Services ("DS") division. The capital is allocated evenly between the Canadian and U.S. operations and is largely comprised of onsite solids control equipment. Secure's 2013 capital budget focuses on the Corporation's aggressive expansion plans to invest in organic growth opportunities, recycling services and complimentary services at existing facility locations.

In 2013, the Corporation's primary objectives will be to maintain and strengthen its market position by consistently providing operational excellence, innovative solutions and cost efficiencies to its customers. Secure has a strong balance sheet and is well positioned to capitalize on new opportunities that support its growing customer base. The organic growth and expansion capital detailed above will enhance our competitive positioning and expand our service offering in both Canada and the US. The Corporation's PRD division is a capital intensive business requiring upfront lead time to obtain the appropriate regulatory approvals, order the necessary long lead items and construct the facilities. It is expected that the majority of the above capital program for 2013 will not have any cash flow impact until 2014, which is typical considering the approval and construction timelines for these types of facilities. Achieving the above capital program will present new opportunities for Secure, its customers and shareholders.

The Corporation intends to fund the 2013 capital budget with cash flow from operations and the Corporation's recently announced $300 million revolving credit facility. Consistent with the Corporation's approach to capital spending, Secure will respond accordingly to market dynamics and manage its expenditures to maintain its balance sheet strength in the future.
