Basic Energy Services Reports Selected Operating Data For December 2013

FORT WORTH, Texas, Jan. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Basic Energy Services, Inc. (NYSE: BAS) ("Basic") today reported selected operating data for the month of December 2013.  Basic's well servicing rig count remained unchanged at 425. Well servicing rig hours for the month were 62,400 producing a rig utilization rate of 61%, compared to 62% and 61% in November 2013 and December 2012, respectively.

During the month, Basic's fluid service truck count increased by 14 to 1,003. Fluid service truck hours for the month were 192,400 compared to 185,100 and 178,100 in November 2013 and December 2012, respectively.

Drilling rig days for the month were 267 producing a rig utilization rate of 72%, compared to the same rate in November 2013 and 82% in December 2012.

Roe Patterson, Basic's President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "Despite the adverse winter weather impact throughout most of our footprint in early December, activity levels in all of our business segments were very consistent with what we experienced in November.  Some customers attempted to catch up from the delays they experienced earlier in December, creating an uptick in activity through the year-end holiday period.

"The steady activity level we saw in the second half of December was better than we had originally anticipated. Therefore, we now expect fourth quarter revenues to be down 5%-6% sequentially compared to our previous guidance of a 7%-8% decline. We expect this healthier pace of activity to continue this year as many of our customers have announced increases in their spending for 2014.

"In late December, we acquired another high-capacity salt water disposal well in South Texas.  With this latest addition, we ended the year with 81 salt water disposal facilities, an increase of ten from 2013. We plan to continue to focus on growing our fully-integrated fluid service business in 2014 by expanding our saltwater disposal facility network and fluid service truck fleet."
