Downhole completion tech firms form single company for US shale

By The WellBoss Company | September 03, 2019

Downhole Technology LLC and Resource Well Completion Technologies Inc. are combining on October 1, 2019. These combined businesses, wholly owned by Schoeller-Bleckmann Oilfield Equipment AG, will operate under newly-formed, The WellBoss Company.

Downhole Technology, known for the successful Boss Hog Frac Plug, is the leading manufacturer of high-quality, composite frac plugs used in plug-and-perf multizone fracturing operations.

Resource Well Completion Technologies is a leading innovator and developer of market-leading technologies, including a diverse range of completion, well construction, multi-stage stimulation, and well servicing products.

“We believe combining both businesses into one is a win-win situation for our customers. There is very little overlapping in product offering between the two. On the contrary, we see many complementary offerings across the board,” stated Gerald Grohmann, CEO, Schoeller-Bleckmann Oilfield Equipment AG.

“This is an incredible opportunity to combine two highly-successful, innovative businesses,” said Jeff McNamara, president of Downhole Technology. “WellBoss will be better positioned to increase the velocity of new completion solutions to the market, thereby increasing the value we offer for our oil and gas partners around the world.”

“WellBoss will be able to offer an extensive sales channel and one of the most diversified completion offerings on the market,” said Colin Atkinson, president of Resource Well Completion Technologies. “Combined with a world-class quality management system and a state-of-the-art innovation pipeline, this venture will allow customers to get more from every completion.”

SBO is a leading supplier of tools and equipment for directional drilling and well completion applications and the global market leader in the manufacture of high-precision components made of non-magnetic steel.
