HOUSTON, TEXAS– US Well Services, LLC (USWS) announced this past week, January 15, it will begin operating a high pressure, high rate fracturing fleet servicing the Wolfcamp and Southern Eagle Ford Shale plays out of San Angelo, TX. 

USWS is currently planning to reposition one of its current fleets from the Northeast U.S. to San Angelo, Texas, beginning operations in mid-February 2018. Initially this will involve one but could grow to a second fleet in the future. USWS provides high-pressure, hydraulic fracturing services in unconventional oil and natural gas basins. Both our conventional (diesel) and Clean Fleet® (electric) hydraulic fracturing fleets are among the most reliable and highest performing fleets in the industry, with the capability to meet the most demanding pressure and pump rate requirements. 

We are currently operating in the Marcellus and Utica shale regions of Ohio, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania,” Dean Fullerton Vice President Human Resources said in a news release. 

“We are pleased to have US Well Services join our business community. We know that San Angelo is perfectly positioned to serve the West Texas oil service industry. We have a great quality of life in San Angelo so it is easy to understand when a business is making a decision to relocate or to open a new facility why San Angelo is the best option from a business as well as a personal perspective,” said San Angelo Mayor, Brenda Gunter.

“The arrival of a highly-skilled, national well services company to San Angelo is further evidence that oil producers are being strengthened by the steady and measured increase in the price of West Texas Intermediate crude. Unlike the boom of 2014, this is a more durable and progressive resurgence of WTI. The efficiencies have increased greatly and the exportation of crude oil has also been a game-changer. We are proud that US Well Services has selected San Angelo as their base of operations for the region. We think they will be very pleased with their new strategic location decision,” Mike Boyd, President, San Angelo Chamber of Commerce, said.

“San Angelo is a growing hub for energy service companies. We are greatly supportive of US Well Service’s decision to establish a significant presence in San Angelo and we look forward to our continued working relationship with local and national company leadership. Our proximity to the Permian Basin allows companies like US Well Services to thrive as they provide critical support functions for energy producers in the Permian plays. We want US Well Services to be very successful in their new area of operation,” said Michael Looney, Vice President of Economic Development, San Angelo Chamber of Commerce.

“We are also operating in the Cotton Valley, Austin Chalk, and Eagle Ford Shale plays out of Bryan, TX. USWS continues to evaluate additional opportunities with existing and new customers to expand our operations throughout the United States,” Fullerton said.

USWS has leased a facility in San Angelo and will be hiring a number of office and shop employees to support Operations. Interested applicants should go to the USWS website and complete an on-line Employment Application based on their job interests.
