Carlos Fernandez, one of the founders of the Company, stated, "We are very excited to secure such a good location for our operational base. We believe this will be an excellent location and it should appreciate in value as the Vaca Muerta shale play continues to gain momentum. EcoStim is investing significantly in the province of Neuquen and is one of the few oilfield service companies bringing new modern pressure pumping equipment into the market. We are very excited for the future."

Adolfo Schumann, the 83 year old property owner, stated, "I am happy to see the property, which previously produced bricks to help build factories and houses in this region for those that came here from around the world to pursue their dreams, continue forward in this new chapter. I fully expect the new development will go forward with the highest respect for the natural habitat. I take pride in the way we have cared for the land during my years of stewarding this property."

Andres Peressini, the Mayor of Plottier City stated, "We are very excited to see the continued investment in our community. Plottier City is strategically positioned with easy access to the Vaca Muerta shale and other oil and gas fields being developed in the region. It is close to Neuquen Capital and the International Airport. The city has a complete range of services available providing an excellent environment for companies looking to take advantage of the booming activity from the Vaca Muerta shale development. EcoStim's activities, including the property improvements currently underway will positively impact our community, including the creation of new jobs".
