ENSERVCO Provides Capital Expenditure and Operational Update

DENVER, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/10/14 -- ENSERVCO Corporation (NYSE MKT: ENSV)

  • $7 Million Added to 2014 Capex Budget; Full-Year Budget Totals $16 Million
  • Annual Revenue Potential of New Equipment Exceeds $35 Million
  • Company Initiating Acidizing and Hot Oiling Programs with Multiple Customers
  • Management Provides Update on Anticipated Second Quarter Financial Results

ENSERVCO Corporation (NYSE MKT: ENSV), a provider of well-site services to the domestic onshore conventional and unconventional oil and gas industries, today provided an update on its 2014 capital expenditure plan and recent operational developments.

ENSERVCO has added $7 million to its previously announced $9 million capital expenditures plan for 2014. The additional investments will go toward the fabrication of eight frac water "mega" heaters, six hot oiling units and two acidizing units. Annual revenue potential from the additional equipment is estimated to be at least $15 million bringing the estimated annual revenue potential for the entire $16 million 2014 capex plan to more than $35 million.

New frac water heating units designed by ENSERVCO during the past year (being referenced to as mega heaters by the Company), double the capacity of ENSERVCO's legacy frac water heating units (previously referred to as "boxes"). The 18 mega heaters planned under the combined 2014 capex program will therefore be equivalent in both heating and revenue potential to 36 of the Company's prior boxes. In addition, the Company anticipates higher operating margins from efficiencies that should be realized in both labor and fuel expenses from the new design.

In summary, the total capex plan should result in a 2014 year-end equipment fleet of (i) the equivalent of 80 legacy frac water heating units, up from 42 at the end of 2013; (ii) 41 hot oiling units, up from 27; and (iii) seven acidizing units, up from three. Six additional hot oil units from the 2014 plan are scheduled for delivery in the first quarter of 2015.

To date, fabrication is on schedule and the Company has begun receiving and deploying its first hot oil and acidizing units. Due to recent limited availability of specialized trucks required to fabricate acidizing units, management has re-allocated a portion of the initial $9 million in capex toward the construction of acidizing docks and related equipment, and reduced to two the number of acidizing units which, as mentioned, have been received. The remaining two units are now included in the second phase of spending.

As previously announced, the first phase of spending is being funded from internal cash flow. Management plans to fund the second phase with bank financing and is currently reviewing term sheets from two leading commercial lenders. Details of the financing and a detailed deployment schedule for the equipment will be presented during the Company's second quarter earnings announcement in mid-August.

"The decision to increase our capital investments was based on detailed discussions with customers about their expanding service needs and our expansion into new markets," said Rick Kasch, president and CEO. "Much of this demand is for non-seasonal well maintenance work. In recent weeks, we have been commissioned by multiple customers to initiate ongoing well acidizing and hot oiling programs in both our Rocky Mountain service region and in Texas. This work was previously performed by other service providers, and represents an expansion of our market share in very active oil and gas fields."

Kasch added, "These programs, which should represent several million dollars in additional annual revenue, include regular acidizing of more than 1,000 wells for multiple customers operating in central Wyoming's CO2 flood fields. In addition, later in the third quarter, we expect to commence acidizing programs for three companies in the Texas Panhandle region. This year-round work should lead to a strong improvement in our third quarter financial results versus the third quarter last year."

The second quarter has historically been one of the Company's two slowest due to the wind down of the seasonal frac water heating work. The Company indicated that despite an almost $1 million increase in second quarter hot oiling revenues versus last year's second quarter, total revenue is expected to be approximately $600,000 below the $7.9 million reported in its 2013 second quarter. The anticipated decline is principally due to a three-week halt in frac water heating for a large customer in the DJ Basin. The stoppage resulted from a well-site accident on a frac job for which ENSERVCO was heating water. The accident triggered an incident review and evaluation of ENSERVCO's safety procedures in the DJ Basin by the customer. The incident analysis determined the accident resulted from the failure of a component on another service provider's equipment. Once the customer's safety evaluation was completed, ENSERVCO was cleared to restart services. However, by the time clearance was obtained, the heating season had slowed significantly and the lost revenue could not be recovered.

Kasch said the Company expects to report a second quarter operating loss of approximately $1 million versus operating income of $550,000 in the same quarter last year. The anticipated decline is due to (i) the reduction in revenue mentioned above; (ii) the addition of safety coordinators during 2013 at each of the Company's locations as a part its commitment to high safety standards; (iii) higher maintenance and repair costs associated with the Company's expanded service fleet; and (iv) the labor costs incurred in retaining the crews waiting for the re-start of activity with the aforementioned large DJ Basin customer.

Through its various operating subsidiaries, ENSERVCO has emerged as one of the energy service industry's leading providers of hot oiling, acidizing, frac-water heating and fluid management services. The Company owns and operates a fleet of more than 230 specialized trucks, trailers, frac tanks and related well-site equipment. ENSERVCO serves customers in seven major domestic oil and gas fields, and operates in Colorado, Kansas, Montana, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Texas, Wyoming and West Virginia.
