About Us

We Keep Oil and Gas Flowing Nationwide

Basic Energy Services provides services that are fundamental to establishing and maintaining the flow of oil and natural gas through the productive life of a well. Our range of well site services in the United States extends from well servicing to water logistics to completion and remedial services.

We were founded in 1992 as Sierra Well Service, Inc., a Delaware corporation and in 2000, we became Basic Energy Services, Inc.

Our regionally-managed operations are concentrated in major onshore oil and natural gas producing regions located in Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, Wyoming, North Dakota, California and Colorado. We focus on liquids-rich basins with recent histories of strong drilling and production economics, as well as natural gas-focused shale plays characterized by prolific reserves.

Competitive Strengths

Our unique strengths give us a competitive position in our industry. These include our extensive footprint in the most prolific basins and our significant market position in core operating areas. We maintain a modern and competitive fleet that matches the local needs where we operate.

Basic Energy Services maintains a strong corporate infrastructure and empowers our decentralized and highly experienced management team to be flexible and responsive to local market needs. We service customers with diverse offerings that further our revenue growth and reduce volatility in our business.
