Eco-Stim Energy Solutions (“ESES”, “Eco-Stim”, or “Company”) is an environmentally focused oilfield service and technology company providing well stimulation and completion services to oil and gas producers drilling in the rapidly expanding international and U.S. unconventional shale markets. In addition, Eco-Stim offers technologies which can be used in conjunction with well stimulation to decrease the number of stages stimulated in shale plays through a unique process that predicts high-probability production zones while confirming those production zones using the latest generation of down-hole diagnostic tools. Moreover, to improve operator efficiency and reduce costs, Eco-Stim offers its clients completion techniques that can dramatically reduce horsepower requirements, emissions, surface footprint, and water usage. Eco-Stim seeks to deliver well completion services with better technology, better ecology, and significantly improved economics for unconventional oil and gas producers worldwide.

At inception, ESES provided well stimulation and completion services to oil and gas operators in Argentina, a country which contains one of the world’s largest shale oil and gas resources. In early 2017, the company made a strategic decision to enter the U.S. market and now has two contracts operating from its base in in northern Oklahoma. The company expects that nearly 80% of its estimated 2018 revenue will now come from the U.S.

In Argentina, the government determined that the development of its vast resources is of highest national priority and has established natural gas prices that are designed to incentivize continued investment. The company has signed a two-year contract to provide well stimulation and ancillary services to the largest operator in the country.

With the expansion of operations in Oklahoma with two one-year contracts in place, and the new 2-year contract in Argentina, ESES has the potential to dramatically increase its annual revenue run rate by the beginning of the fourth quarter of 2017. Five analysts have buy/outperform ratings on ESES, with target prices ranging as high as $3.00 a share.
