Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Charlotte, NC - Jan 26, 2017 - Global Growth Partners (“GGP”) is proud to announce the merger of Appalachian Production Services, Inc. (“APS”) of Abingdon, VA with Basin Energy Group, headquartered in Clarksburg, WV, a portfolio company of Turning Basin Capital. The addition of APS to the Basin Energy Group creates one of the largest independent service companies in the oil and gas industry supporting exploration and production (“E&P) and midstream service companies in the Marcellus and Utica basins.
Established in 1994, APS was one of the first production service companies in the Appalachian region, bringing a wealth of local knowledge, expertise and relationships to the combined company. Focusing on oil and natural gas production management services to upstream E&P and midstream clients has cemented APS as one of the pioneers in the Appalachian region. APS’ founder, Frank Henderson, started the company as an operator who built his service platform from an operators’ point of view. Over time, his business grew rapidly along with new operators/producers who have made hefty investments in drilling new wells and installing midstream infrastructure as the mineral resources within the Marcellus and Utica basins were discovered and developed.
This was a natural fit as both companies had very little overlap in regards to core service offerings, geographic presence and their respective portfolios of blue chip customers; together they offer the highest level of comprehensive oil and gas services coupled with a disciplined safety program and proven record which is critical for oil and gas producers/operators operating in the basin today.
Merging with Basin gives APS additional service capabilities and provides the combined entity with service coverage throughout Virginia, Kentucky, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, Tennessee and Ohio with seven field offices located in the footprint.
Jason Patterson of Global Growth Partners commented, “this was a natural fit as both companies had very little overlap in regards to core service offerings, geographic presence and their respective portfolios of blue chip customers; together they offer the highest level of comprehensive oil and gas services coupled with a disciplined safety program and proven record which is critical for oil and gas producers/operators operating in the basin today.”
Moreover, being a portfolio company of Turning Basin gives Basin Energy Group (which APS is now a part of) flexibility to grow more rapidly with its customers as the industry regains its feet and readies itself for a sustained growth cycle.
