US Well Services Announces Move Towards Full Electrification of Portfolio

  • USWS announced its commitment to becoming an all-electric hydraulic fracturing services provider and expects to have fully exited the diesel frac market by the end of Q4 2021.  As a result of this strategic transition, USWS expects to become the first publicly-traded, pure-play electric completions services provider.
  • The Company also announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to sell certain diesel-powered hydraulic fracturing equipment to a privately-held buyer for net proceeds of $21 million, subject to certain closing conditions. 
  • Further, the Company is in active negotiations with several counterparties and anticipates entering into a series of additional transactions to sell the majority of its remaining diesel fracturing equipment as well as certain power generation assets. 
  • In total, the Company believes it should generate in excess of $100 million of cash from non-core asset divestitures, with the net proceeds expected to reduce outstanding indebtedness and fund general corporate purposes, including the buildout of USWS’ next-generation all-electric fracturing fleets.

“We are excited to execute on our strategy and become fully-electric,” commented Joel Broussard, US Well Services’ President and CEO.  “US Well Services has believed in the superiority of electric technology since our first Clean Fleet® was deployed in 2014.  Today, we are beginning to realize our vision of going all-electric, reducing a significant amount of our outstanding debt and streamlining our focus to become the new market leader in our industry.”
