Select Energy Services Acquires Elite Wellsite Services

Houston-based Select Energy Services has acquired Elite Wellsite Services of Bridgeport. The purchase marks SES's entry into the tank truck market in the Barnett Shale.

Select Energy Services provides water and well site services to the oil and natural gas industry. It currently operates in nine shale formations across the state, including the Barnett Shale in north Texas.

“Really the significance of it is building out our engineered water service capabilities in our north Texas region.”

Dustin Childers is a spokesman for SES.

“We needed to add some service line capabilities in the area of fluid hauling and frack tank rentals, and that’s what the Elite Well Services acquisition does for us.”

Childers says for now Elite will continue to operate under its own name in north Texas. He says SES expects to hire more workers this year, both at its Barnett Shale operations and across the state.
