CALGARY, Alberta, July 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DIVERGENT Energy Services Corp. (“Divergent”, the "Company", or “DVG”) is pleased to provide the following operations update.
The Company continues to experience quarter on quarter activity growth, with clients within our service region demonstrating a renewed urgency in returning wells to production in response to the prolonged increase in oil and gas prices. The Company’s largest client has indicated that it intends to continue its workover program for the next 12 months at a pace which may exceed recent quarters. In addition to the growing demand from its existing customer base, the Company continues to draw sales from new customers within our service region.
These factors have resulted in second quarter activity being marginally higher than the first quarter activity of 2022, and one-third higher than the second quarter activity of the previous year. The Company is currently working at maximum capacity and is actively expanding its workforce and equipment fleet to meet the increased demand.
The positive commodity pricing trends the industry is currently experiencing is in part caused by a structural shortfall in supply, which will be difficult for the industry to overcome in the near term. As a result, the demand for energy services continues to increase and the ability for the sector to improve over the next few years is seen as highly likely.
