Eco-Stim Energy Solutions Signs Contract With Major International Oil & Gas Company

HOUSTON and NEUQUEN CITY, Argentina, Nov. 13, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eco-Stim Energy Solutions, Inc. (OTC:ESES) ("EcoStim" or the "Company") announced today that it has finalized a multiple well commercial contract with a major international oil and gas company in Argentina. On this project, EcoStim will run the NCS Energy Services' (NCS) jet frac technology to perforate wells located in the Commodore Region of Argentina. This will be the second commercial contract EcoStim has executed and performed for this customer in Argentina, having completed a field management fiber optic diagnostic contract earlier this year. The jet frac technology is designed to allow this customer to more efficiently perforate its wells and reduce the time and cost of putting wells on production. The contract will run over several months beginning in Q4 2014 and once the operation is demonstrated to be successful, the Company believes there will be many other opportunities to perform similar services in the region.

EcoStim's President and Chief Executive Officer J. Chris Boswell stated, "We are very pleased to be able to offer this service to this well regarded customer. The NCS jet frac service offering is a component of our "best practices" portfolio of tools and technologies which we intend to deploy with several operators in the region. Earlier this year, EcoStim completed a very successful field management project with this customer during which we identified production zones in lower flow wells using advanced fiber optic technology, another component of our "best practices" portfolio. We believe the previous project provided valuable information to this customer in terms of characterizing their reservoir and helping to identify "sweet spots" within their productive formations. The NCS sliding sleeves and jet frac technology allows our customers to pin-point their stimulation efforts and shorten the completion cycle, thus saving time and money."
