Eco-Stim Energy Solutions Announces Approval for Listing on NASDAQ

HOUSTON and NEUQUEN CITY, Argentina, April 6, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eco-Stim Energy Solutions, Inc. (OTC:ESES) ("EcoStim" or the "Company") announced today that it has received confirmation that its application to list the company's common stock on the NASDAQ Capital Market has been approved by The NASDAQ Stock Market, a unit of the NASDAQ OMX Group.

EcoStim's common stock is expected to begin trading on the NASDAQ Capital Market at the opening of trading on April 10, 2015 under the ticker symbol, ESES. The Company's common stock will continue to trade on the Over-the-Counter Bulletin Board until the market close on April 9, 2015 under the ticker symbol, ESES.

J. Chris Boswell, CEO of EcoStim stated, "Our listing on the NASDAQ is a major milestone for EcoStim and a testament to the tremendous progress we have made over the past year. We believe that the NASDAQ listing will help broaden our shareholder base and provide better liquidity for all shareholders. We continue to believe that the emerging shale oil and gas basins around the world, and in particular the Vaca Muerta shale play in Argentina, offer investors a unique growth opportunity."

EcoStim has established a meaningful presence in this region, offering well stimulation, coiled tubing, and field management services to an expanding customer base in Argentina. This technology platform offers customers an approach that reduces the ecological impact on communities while at the same time reducing cost.

Boswell went on to say, "We feel our approach is especially important in lower commodity price environments as operators focus on more economical and ecological solutions to their drilling and completion programs. However, in Argentina where oil and gas prices are substantially above the prices being realized in the US and other parts of the world, the oil and gas development activity level remains strong which offers those companies participating in the local market the opportunity to grow. At EcoStim, we will continue to identify other undersupplied regions of the world where we can offer our technology and services while creating shareholder value."
