Our average number of well servicing rigs increased to 431 during the third quarter of 2012 compared to 415 in the same period in 2011, primarily due to the acquisition of Pat’s P&A, Inc. in the third quarter of 2011 and Mayo Marrs Casing Pulling, Inc. in the first quarter of 2012.

Our revenue per fluid service truck increased 3% to $295,000 in the first nine months of 2012 compared to $286,000 in the same period in 2011, which reflects the expansion of our frac tank fleets and increases in both utilization and pricing for our services.

Well servicing revenues increased by 20% to $292.1 million during the first nine months of 2012 compared to $242.7 million during the same period in 2011.

General and Administrative Expenses.

Included in general and administrative expense for the first nine months of 2012 is a $2.9 million charge related to a Texas state sales and use tax audit, covering the period from 2006 to 2010. This liability may change as additional review is performed.
