Permian drilling tech provider signs with Frontier

By ADS Services | October 20, 2019

ADS Services and Frontier International LLC have entered into a supply agreement to provide the land drilling market with a comprehensive, low-cost managed pressure drilling (“MPD”) solution for onshore drilling applications.

This exclusive supply agreement enables ADS to offer integrated pressure management systems and equipment for rental or sale within the Permian Basin, including both the Midland and Delaware sub-basins.

With an experienced and industry-respected team, Frontier has, in a short time, become recognized in low OPEX MPD and pressure control solutions. Specifically, Frontier has focused on the introduction of low-cost, strategic technologies to the land and offshore drilling market, including pressure control systems, semi-automated well control systems, rig integration services, data analytics, and custom control-system “Apps” for drilling performance and operational process safety.

"We are pleased to partner in this supply agreement with Frontier International to provide next-generation systems and market-leading manufacturing, testing, and service capabilities in both MPD equipment and rig systems integration for the onshore drilling industry," commented Charlie Orbell, president of ADS.

"Our shared objective in this agreement is to provide clients with fit for purpose hardware offerings which enhance performance, cost efficiency and quality in the onshore drilling environment," said Earl Dietrich, vice-president drilling and control systems of frontier.

The first twenty next-generation systems, designed for the Permian Basin and deployed through ADS Services, will be deployed in the coming months.

ADS is a leading provider of critical, tailored pressure control equipment and services in the Permian Basin. ADS partnered with Black Bay Energy Capital in 2017 to expand its product suite and customer base, with particular emphasis on growth in the higher-pressure and more technically challenging areas of the Delaware Basin in response to significant customer demand.
