EnerCorp Engineered Solutions said Monday it is merging with well flow specialist Pro Oil & Gas Services LLC to expand well construction services across North America. 

EnerCorp, headquartered in The Woodlands near Houston, formerly was EnerCorp Sand Solutions. The oilfield services (OFS) specialist has focused on sand separation technologies, as well as providing ancillary flowback and well testing support equipment. 

In merging with Houston-based Pro, EnerCorp plans to expand its services to pressure control equipment and flowback support focused on early stage flowback. Pro, which has focused its offerings in the Permian Basin and Haynesville Shale, would also provide a drilling services division focused on well construction solutions, including pre-set surface casing and water well solutions. 

Both EnerCorp and Pro are backed by private equity firm Intervale Capital.

EnerCorp President James Pung is to oversee the combined business. Pung has more than 17 years of OFS experience, mainly focused on completions and production services and technologies.  

“Pro’s products and services broaden our suite of offerings and will ultimately allow us to drive out more cost from our segment of the industry through technological advances and operating efficiencies,” Pung said. 

“We’re excited to close this merger to further align with the needs of our customers as they seek and request consolidated purchasing and service opportunities throughout this downturn cycle.”

With a larger platform, EnerCorp expects to be able to deliver more advancements in automation, de-sanding technology efficiencies and well performance data delivery.
