CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - July 11, 2012) - Enseco Energy Services Corp. ("Enseco" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:ENS) is pleased to announce the appointment of Kent M. Devlin P.Eng MBA as President of Enseco effective today. Mr. Devlin was previously VP Operations of Enseco and has been employed in various roles with the Company since its inception. Mr. Devlin has over 27 years of experience in the service industry and has a background in both production testing and directional drilling. Prior to joining Enseco, Mr. Devlin was employed in various senior management roles with Weatherford, Precision Drilling and Computalog.
Mr. Scott Ratushny, Chairman of The Board, stated "Kent has done an excellent job of building our production testing business in both Canada and the United States; with his background in directional drilling he was an ideal choice to manage both of Enseco's service lines, as its new President."
As part of his new role Mr. Devlin will be instrumental in expanding both the production testing and directional drilling businesses in the United States. The US market currently accounts for approximately 33% of Enseco's total revenues. Enseco is focusing on growing the US market to be 50% of the Company's revenues.
With the opening of Enseco's motor repair facility in Leduc, Alberta in June, Enseco's directional drilling division is expecting improved cost efficiencies and service quality. This will augment the improved service quality already seen as a result of opening the Leduc MWD Repair facility last year which has already resulted in improved margins and customer satisfaction.
"Enseco is well positioned for further growth in our two service lines, we have a wealth of talented people throughout all areas of the Company and I am excited about the future prospects for the Company" said Mr. Devlin.
