Antelope Oil Tool Expands Cementing Equipment Product Offering with the Acquisition of CTE

MINERAL WELLS, Texas, April 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Antelope Oil Tool & Manufacturing Co., LLC ("Antelope") has acquired CTE Industries LTD.  ("CTE").  Headquartered in Edmonton, AB, CTE was founded in 2006, and is an independent manufacturer and supplier of oilfield cementation equipment.  Its products include float shoes, float collars, cement plugs and centralizers for the global oil and gas industry.  CTE also provides premium threading services and supplies steel products, such as mechanical tubing and coupling stock.
