Basic Energy Services Reports Selected Operating Data For July 2014

FORT WORTH, Texas, Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Basic Energy Services, Inc. (NYSE: BAS) ("Basic") today reported selected operating data for the month of July 2014.  Basic's well servicing rig count remained unchanged at 421. Well servicing rig hours for the month were 73,300 producing a rig utilization rate of 69%, compared to 74% and 71% in June 2014 and July 2013, respectively.

During the month, Basic's fluid service truck count increased by three to 1,019. Fluid service truck hours for the month were 214,900 compared to 205,300 and 189,000 in June 2014 and July 2013, respectively.

Drilling rig days for the month were 331 producing a rig utilization of 89%, compared to 88% and 77% in June 2014 and July 2013, respectively.

Roe Patterson, Basic's President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "With the exception of well servicing, July activity for all of our segments experienced sequential increases.  The completions and remedial segment, particularly pumping services, benefited from strong completions activity and the impact of a full month of recent hydraulic horsepower additions.  Our fluid services segment also benefited from increased completions activity as daily hours per truck in July experienced a slight uptick from June.  Given that our well servicing operation is typically impacted by holidays more so than our other services, the July 4th holiday caused our July rig utilization rate to be approximately 400 basis points lower sequentially.  While overall well servicing hours increased, we could not offset this holiday impact.  We expect well servicing and fluid service markets to remain steady yet competitive in the near term.

"Pricing in most of our service lines remains stable across our footprint.  We continue to see opportunities to raise rates in our pumping business in order to recoup input costs and generate net pricing gains."

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices.

When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

Any startup has to have a clear go –to-market strategy from the beginning. Similarly, any data science project has to have a go to production strategy from its first days, so it could go beyond proof-of-concept. Machine learning and artificial intelligence in production would result in hundreds of training pipelines and machine learning models that are continuously revised by teams of data scientists and seamlessly connected with web applications for tenants and users.
Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.
