Highlight of Business Operations:

Revenue per fluid service truck increased by 8% to $80,000 in the third quarter of 2010 compared to $74,000 in the second quarter of 2010, primarily due to the increasing rates being charged to customers. Segment profit percentage decreased slightly to 25% in the third quarter of 2010 from 26% in the second quarter of 2010 due to increased workers compensation costs.

The increase in completion and remedial services revenue to $73.7 million in the third quarter of 2010 from $61.5 million in the second quarter of 2010 was caused by higher drilling and completion activity. There was also an increase in segment profit percentage to 41% in the third quarter of 2010 from 39% in the second quarter of 2010 due to the increased activity and improved pricing for our pressure pumping services.

The increase in revenue per day to $10,600 in the third quarter of 2010 from $10,000 in the second quarter of 2010 was due primarily to improved pricing for our services. The decrease in segment profit percentage to 26% in third quarter of 2010 from 29% in the second quarter of 2010 is due to increased operating costs associated with our derrick recertification program that was completed in the third quarter of 2010.
