Xtreme Coil Achieves Record Third Quarter EBITDA and Operating Days and Provides Update

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Nov. 13, 2009) - Xtreme Coil Drilling Corp. (TSX:XDC) ("Xtreme Coil", the "Company") announces financial and operating results for the three ("2009 3Q") and nine months ended September 30, 2009, with comparative data for the same periods in 2008 and for the year ended December 31, 2008 and provides an operations update.

Highlights

- record EBITDA of $7.6 million in 2009 3Q, up 28 percent from 2008 3Q

- record gross margin of $11.7 million in 2009 3Q, up 44 percent from 2008 3Q

- record operating days at 1,022 in 2009 3Q, up 8 percent from 2008 3Q

- at September 30, 2009 13 rigs operating

- completed XTC 200 DTRPLUS rig for re-entry drilling

In 2009 3Q, Xtreme Coil reported record EBITDA of $7.6 million, record gross margin of $11.7 million and a record 1,022 operating days. The improvement in EBITDA and gross margin over the previous quarter was primarily a result of increased operating days in Mexico, where the two rigs that commenced operations late in 2009 2Q enjoyed a full quarter of operations during 2009 3Q and two additional rigs, recently mobilized to Mexico under previously announced contracts, commenced operations late in 2009 3Q. Net income of $2.7 million for 2009 3Q was also improved over the previous quarter as rig operating results and gains on foreign exchange were only partially offset by higher income taxes and SG&A.

Xtreme Coil uses both GAAP and non-GAAP measures to assess performance and provides non-GAAP measures such as EBITDA and gross margin as supplemental information to investors. EBITDA and gross margin do not have standardized meanings prescribed by GAAP. Xtreme Coil's method of defining these measures is provided in the Non-GAAP Measures section of Management's Discussion and Analysis filed annually and quarterly on SEDAR.

Operations Update

Following the end of 2009 3Q, three rigs continue to drill in the Rocky Mountain region of the United States and ten rigs are drilling in Mexico, all under long-term contracts.

In October, Xtreme Coil completed customization work on a Coil Over Top Drive® ("COTD™") rig in south Texas to prepare it for re-entry drilling opportunities in ithe Middle East. On completion of the XTC 200DTRPLUS, Xtreme Coil hosted on-site tours and rig demonstrations for industry customers and colleagues to familiarize them with this rig's design and operational attributes. The rig features an alternating current ("AC") electrically-powered 200,000 lb. Xtreme Coil injector and new functionality to allow manipulation of the injector hydraulically for connection to a live well pressure lubricator. Modifications to the rig's mast make it capable of handling lubricator assemblies of up to 120 feet for pressure deployment of downhole tools. Also during 2009 3Q, we constructed an Xtreme Coil-designed substructure to elevate the XTC 200DTRPLUS rig above wellheads that are typical for Middle East and North Africa work scopes.

Subject to approval by Xtreme Coil's lenders, and in connection with a previously executed pre-bid agreement and letter of understanding between Xtreme Coil and a major diversified oilfield services company (the "Service Company"), Xtreme Coil intends to enter into a definitive agreement pursuant to which the Service Company will fund up to US$5.7 million in customization costs for an XTC 200DTRPLUS drilling rig and pay for certain significant mobilization and start-up costs of deploying the rig to the Middle East upon project award. Under the terms of the proposed agreement, which is expected to be executed upon approval of Xtreme Coil's lenders and at Xtreme Coil's sole discretion, the Service Company would fund a three-year loan for up to US$5.7 million of the customization work mentioned above, repayable exclusively out of day rate revenues generated by the XTC 200DTRPLUS drilling rig during the term of the loan, with a balloon payment due at maturity for any unpaid balance. The Service Company would have preferential access to the rig for a period of three years.

Recently, an Xtreme Coil COTD™ rig working in the Wattenberg field of the Denver-Julesburg basin surpassed its previous record drilling time by achieving "spud-to-spud" times of just over 50 hours in 8,000 foot directional wells. ("Spud-to-spud" describes the time from commencement of drilling the subject well through to positioning the rig on the next well location so that drilling can begin again.) Our customer commented recently on "technological advances" being fundamental to achieving these time and depth improvements that were not previously possible. Throughout Xtreme Coil's operations in the United States and Mexico, our day-to-day emphasis remains on operating our rigs efficiently and safely for our employees, our customers and our vendors.

During the remainder of 2009, we are committed to continuing activities that advance identified potential projects. At the same time, we are actively pursuing new business opportunities. Our objective is to introduce and deploy Xtreme Coil's innovative drilling rigs and expertise internationally, including oil and natural gas producing regions in the Middle East, North Africa, Australia and Asia.

Description of the Business

Xtreme Coil is a drilling contractor that designs, builds and operates proprietary Coil Over Top Drive® ("COTD™") drilling rigs. These drilling rigs employ Xtreme Coil's patented and patent-pending coil designs and technologies. In addition to their coil drilling capabilities, these drilling rigs also have the ability to drill with conventional jointed drill pipe. The Company has historically built these dual-purpose COTDTM drilling rigs in Canada under contracts with several third parties and operates them internationally under contracts with oil and natural gas exploration and production ("E&P") companies and global integrated oilfield service providers. Xtreme Coil currently conducts land drilling operations in the United States and Mexico and is actively pursuing opportunities to expand its contract drilling services within and beyond these current core regions of operation.

Xtreme Coil's head office is in Houston, Texas. Xtreme Coil also has a corporate office in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and an operations office near Poza Rica, in the state of Veracruz, Mexico.

As at September 30, 2009, Xtreme Coil held nine patents related to new technologies for drilling with coiled tubing and conventional drill pipe as well as certain rig transportation methods. The United States Patent and Trademark office has issued six patents, the Canadian Intellectual Property Office has issued two patents and jurisdictions in Eurasia have issued one patent to Xtreme Coil. In addition, Xtreme Coil has more than 60 patent-related applications in the United States, Canada and other jurisdictions. The Company's issued and applied-for patents collectively cover coiled tubing drilling and transportation technology including equipment and methods for coiled tubing drilling to depths of 3,000 meters (10,000 feet) or more with large diameter pipe and up to 9,000 meters (30,000 feet) for re-entry applications with smaller diameter pipe.

As at September 30, 2009, Xtreme Coil had ten drilling rigs working under long-term contracts with a global integrated oilfield services provider in the Chicontepec development project in the state of Veracruz, Mexico. The ten rigs working in Mexico reflect new long-term contracts executed in September 2009. Six of the rigs had been working in this project since 2008 and four additional rigs commenced operations in 2009. Two of those four rigs commenced operations in late 2009 2Q and the other two rigs commenced operations in late 2009 3Q.

In addition, the Company had another three drilling rigs working in the United States under long-term contracts with a large independent E&P company. Xtreme Coil has designed seven models of COTD™ drilling rigs with five designs completed and deployed and one ready to deploy to field operations.

At September 30, 2009, of the 16 COTDTM drilling rigs the Company had in service:

- ten rigs operating under long-term contracts in Mexico,

- three rigs operating under long-term contracts in the United States,

- two rigs stacked in the United States, and

- one rig undergoing customization in preparation for possible deployment from the United States to the Middle East.

Xtreme Coil's early capital plans called for the construction of 18 drilling rigs. The Company made the decision to temporarily suspend construction on the last two of these rigs in 2008 3Q when economic uncertainty significantly decreased demand in the United States drilling market. As such, in addition to the 16 drilling rigs that were completed, the Company purchased, and retains in stock, a limited number of components for the two additional drilling rigs for which construction was suspended.

Xtreme Coil's common shares trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol "XDC".

(1) EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and
amortization, stock-based compensation, foreign exchange gains or losses
and gains or losses on sale of equipment. EBITDA per share is defined as
EBITDA divided by the Company's basic number of common shares.
Management believes EBITDA and EBITDA per share are useful supplemental
measures of the financial performance of Xtreme Coil's principal
business activities before considering how activities are financed or
taxed, and before the impact of stock-based compensation, foreign
exchange rate fluctuations or sales of equipment. A reconciliation of
EBITDA to net income is presented in the Non- GAAP measures section of
this MD&A.
(2) see Non- GAAP measures


During the preceding eight quarters, Xtreme Coil's revenue, EBITDA, net income, assets and operating days have shown general improvement as the Company increased the size of its drilling rig fleet and secured long-term contracts for its rigs, though favourable trends have been partially offset by the deterioration in the value of the United States dollar ("USD") relative to the CAD in the current year. In the near term, we expect the primary source of revenue will be from the 13 rigs operating under long-term contracts at the end of 2009 3Q.

For the three months ended September 30, 2009, the Company's utilization rate of 69 percent (with 13 rigs working at the end of the period out of 16 total rigs) was 14 percent lower than the utilization rate of 83 percent recorded in the comparative period in 2008 (with 13 rigs working at the end of the period out of 15 total rigs).

Xtreme Coil reported increased operating days during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009, compared to 2008. This reflected the increased number of rigs in the operating fleet and the additional number of rigs operating under long-term contracts. The achievement of 1,022 operating days in 2009 3Q represents an all-time record since Xtreme Coil's commencement of operations in 2006.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------


At September 30, 2009, Xtreme Coil's fleet consisted of 16 rigs (2008 - 15 rigs). As we ramped up construction, commissioning and deployment of new drilling rigs during 2008, operating days, revenues and revenue per operating day all increased. During the three and the nine months ended September 30, 2009, we had a greater proportion of our larger rigs operating than in the comparable 2008 periods. The higher dayrates commanded by these larger rigs, combined with the effect of a stronger USD relative to the CAD, resulted in increased revenue per operating day for the nine months ended September 30, 2009 compared to the same period in 2008. In contrast, higher average mobilization revenue and higher average third party revenues related to reimbursable expenses in 2008 overshadowed the effect of having a greater percentage of larger rigs working and a slightly stronger USD for the three months ended September 30, 2009 compared to the same period in 2008.

Historically, all drilling contracts under which the Company operates its equipment have been denominated primarily in USD. We anticipate the continued operation under long-term contracts of our ten rigs in Mexico and three rigs in the United States will contribute to revenue stability during the remainder of 2009. Recently, there have been news reports suggesting PEMEX will be reviewing their development plans for Chicontepec; however, management continues to believe this will not adversely affect the utilization of our ten rigs currently under long-term contract in that area. Furthermore, management believes demand for drilling equipment in Mexico during 2009 will remain strong as the country continues to focus on developing existing hydrocarbon reserves to replace historic declines in production rates.

In response to continuing weakness in drilling market conditions in the United States and Canada, management intends to continue efforts to market internationally what we believe are the advantages of our newer and efficient fleet of COTDTM drilling rigs. We continue aggressive efforts to market to existing customers and secure business from a broader range of potential customers. We are actively pursuing energy projects in the Middle East, North Africa, Australia and Asia. Management believes there is potential to secure contracts in these markets which could utilize several of Xtreme Coil's rigs and potentially increase utilization, revenue and market diversification.



Operating Expenses

Operating expenses per
operating day 14.1 19.2 (27) 16.0 17.9 (11)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------


The increase in operating expenses year-over-year primarily reflects the higher number of operating days and stronger value of the USD relative to CAD on our USD denominated expenses. Operating expenses as a percentage of revenue, continued to decline in 2009 when compared to the prior year periods as fixed infrastructure and other non-rig specific operational expenses did not increase proportionally over these periods. Operating expenses per day also showed improvement for 2009 3Q compared to the same period in 2008 due to lower downtime and higher costs incurred during the rollout of the XTC 400 series rigs.



Gross Margin(1)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
(1) see Non-GAAP measures


The increase in total gross margin, gross margin per operating day and gross margin percentage for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009 improved primarily due to increased operating days and the resulting increase in revenues. Certain operational expenses are fixed in nature and any increase in operating days produces significant improvement in these metrics. In addition, increasing operating days allow Xtreme Coil to achieve certain efficiencies and economies of scale which improves gross margins and gross margin percentages.



Selling, General and Administration Expense ("SG&A")

SG&A (percentage of
revenue) 16 9 78 14 9 56
----------------------------------------------------------------------------


SG&A for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009 was higher primarily due to development of administrative infrastructure to support expanded international operations, higher professional fees and increased bonus expense. As the Company continues to expand its business and SG&A has increased, focus has been directed to finding ways to control the growth of these costs as a percentage of revenues, including progressively moving certain outsourced services to in-house permanent personnel.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
EBITDA 7,569 5,899 28 19,135 8,868 116
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
(1) see Non-GAAP measures


For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009, the increase in EBITDA was a result of increased operating days, higher average dayrates, and a decrease in direct operating expenses as a percentage of revenue.



Depreciation and Amortization

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Depreciation and
amortization 3,083 2,361 31 8,803 5,612 57
----------------------------------------------------------------------------


Depreciation charges for Xtreme Coil's drilling equipment are based on the units-of-production method. Depreciation for drilling equipment comprises the majority of depreciation charges. This method generally increases depreciation charges in direct proportion to increased operating days. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009, the increase in depreciation and amortization is proportionate to the increase in operating days and is primarily due to the increase in equipment engaged in active field operations.



Stock-based Compensation

Stock-based compensation 350 420 (17) 943 720 31
----------------------------------------------------------------------------


For the three months ended September 30, 2009, stock-based compensation decreased as fewer options were granted compared to the same period in 2008. However, for the nine months ended September 30, 2009, stock-based compensation increased overall as our operations in the United States and Mexico grew. The board of directors responded to this growth by granting additional options to purchase common shares to employees.



Foreign Exchange

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Foreign exchange (gain)
loss (1,969) 309 n/a (2,744) 231 n/a
----------------------------------------------------------------------------


Foreign exchange gain or loss results from translation of the portion of revolving debt denominated in USD as well as operational revenues and expenses denominated in USD and Mexico pesos ("MXN"). Foreign exchange gains and losses result directly from the fluctuation in values of the CAD relative to the USD and the MXN. Drilling operations in the United States and Mexico were denominated primarily in USD.

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009, the foreign exchange gain increased primarily due to the effect of the decreased value of the USD in relation to the CAD on the debt denominated in USD, offset by increasing revenues denominated in USD.



Net Interest Expense

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Net Interest expense 680 898 (24) 2,559 1,981 29
----------------------------------------------------------------------------


During 2008, Xtreme Coil drew on its credit facilities primarily to complete construction of drilling rigs which totalled 16 at December 31, 2008, as well as to provide cash for ongoing operating requirements and to establish operations in Mexico. These activities caused the Company's debt balances to peak in early 2009 and subsequently decline, as cash generated from operating activities and proceeds from equity issuance in 2009 allowed the Company to reduce debt by $19,565 (including the effect of foreign exchange gains and losses) and fund $15,488 in capital expenditures (including the effect of foreign exchange gains and losses) to upgrade rigs for anticipated work.

Net interest expense for the three months ended September 30, 2009 decreased compared to the same period in 2008 due to lower average debt balances as a result of debt repayments during 2009 3Q, in addition to lower average interest rates for the same period.

Net interest expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2009, increased compared to the same period in 2008, due to higher average debt balances partially offset by lower average interest rates on the Company's variable rate debt facilities.

Income (loss) before tax 5,463 1,873 192 9,612 286 3,261
----------------------------------------------------------------------------


For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009, income before tax increased over prior periods primarily as a result of Xtreme Coil's expanding operations and transition from a construction phase to an operational phase. As the Company secured long-term drilling contracts and increased revenues, operating days and income before tax increased.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------


For the three months ended September 30, 2009 versus the same period in the prior year, tax expense increased primarily due to an accrual for certain withholding taxes relating to the Company's international tax structure and the impact of the intercompany sale of two drilling rigs. For the nine months ended September 30, 2009, the increased tax expense over the prior year period reflects the 2009 3Q accrual of certain withholding taxes relating to the Company's international tax structure and the impact of the intercompany sale of four drilling rigs, partially offset by the recovery recorded in 2009 1Q to reflect a lower effective tax rate applicable to the Company's tax structure.

The decrease in net debt and the corresponding increase in working capital at September 30, 2009, as compared to December 31, 2008, are primarily related to the two equity offerings which closed in 2009 2Q. Net proceeds from these offerings totalled $44,446.

Year-to-date through September 30, 2009, proceeds from the issuance of equity and cash generated from operating activities enabled the Company to reduce debt by $19,565 (including foreign exchange gains and losses), fund capital expenditures of $15,488 and increase cash and cash equivalents by $18,499.

Capital expenditures and commitments decreased in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009, compared to 2008. At September 30, 2008, six rigs were under construction. By year-end 2008, the Company had completed construction of the 16 rigs and suspended the construction of an additional two rigs due to market conditions discussed in "Description of the Business". Capital spending in the nine months ended September 30, 2009, was primarily related to modifications conducted in the first half of the year on the four rigs subsequently moved to commence operations in Mexico and modifications conducted in the third quarter on an idle rig to make it suitable for re-entry work in the Middle East.

In May 2008, Xtreme Coil entered into an agreement for credit facilities with its existing lender and another lender on a syndicated basis. The credit facilities included a $15,000 operating loan facility and a revolving extendible facility, initially set at $70,000 which reduced as scheduled to $60,000 at December 31, 2008. The credit facilities required Xtreme Coil to maintain certain financial covenants. At December 31, 2008, and at March 31, 2009, Xtreme Coil was not in compliance with two of these covenants related to funded debt to EBITDA and interest coverage. The syndicate provided waivers with regard to covenant non-compliance for twelve months following the respective balance sheet dates of non-compliance.

On May 29, 2009, Xtreme Coil executed the second amendment to the credit agreement. The amendment extends the existing credit facilities, continuing the $15 million operating loan facility ("Tranche A") and converting the $60 million revolving credit facility into an extendible term loan ("Tranche B"). Terms of Tranche A remain essentially unchanged. The amended Tranche B facility requires minimum principal payments based on a five-year amortization of the outstanding balance at May 29, 2009. Quarterly installments in arrears began June 30, 2009, and continue until the stated maturity date of January 4, 2011, at which time the remaining facility balance becomes due and payable unless extended. Under the terms of the amended agreement, Xtreme Coil may request extension of the facility at any time 90 days before the stated maturity date. A debt service coverage ratio covenant replaces the EBIT interest coverage and funded debt to EBITDA covenants that previously applied to quarterly financial reporting periods. Xtreme Coil was in compliance with all covenants at September 30, 2009.

At September 30, 2009, Xtreme Coil had no outstanding balance on the operating loan facility ("Tranche A") (at December 31, 2008, $7,878) and $47,243 on the extendible term loan, of which $11,838 was classified as current ("Tranche B") (at December 31, 2008, $58,930, of which $9,825 was classified as current).

Xtreme Coil maintains ongoing communication with its banking syndicate and believes its relationship with the syndicate is good and the syndicate is in sound financial condition.

This table summarizes Xtreme Coil's contractual obligations at September 30, 2009.

The table above assumes the Company's credit facility is not extended and payments are made as required under the existing credit agreement. Interest payments are not included in the table. Management believes cash on hand, cash flow from operating activities and amounts available under Xtreme Coil's credit facilities will be sufficient to fund payments due in less than one year.

Outstanding Common Shares

As at September 30, 2009, Xtreme Coil had outstanding options to purchase 3,817,000 common shares (2008 3Q - 2,504,000) at a weighted average exercise price of $4.68 per share (2008 3Q - $5.89).

Share capital on November 10, 2009 was $252,846 and 52,871,669 common shares were issued and outstanding. Additionally, Xtreme Coil has outstanding purchase warrants entitling the holder to purchase a total of 1,000,000 common shares and options outstanding entitling the holders to purchase 3,791,666 common shares.

Disclosure Controls and Procedures and Internal Controls over Financial Reporting

The Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer (the "certifying officers") are responsible for establishing and maintaining disclosure controls and procedures ("DC&P") and internal control over financial reporting ("ICFR") for the Company, in accordance with the requirements of Multilateral Instrument 52-109 Certification of Disclosure in Issuers' Annual and Interim Filings.

Xtreme Coil's certifying officers cannot guarantee the Company's DC&P and ICFR will prevent all errors and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well-designed and implemented, can provide only reasonable assurance of meeting the control system's objectives. Consideration must also be given to the benefits of controls in relation to the cost of such controls. Due to the inherent limitations in any control system, no evaluation of controls can absolutely assure detection of all control issues within a company. Inherent limitations include the potential for faulty judgments in decision-making and the occurrence of breakdowns resulting from simple errors and mistakes. Individual acts by some persons, or collusion by two or more people, can circumvent controls and management can override the controls. Due to the inherent limitations in a cost-effective control system, misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and may not be detected.

DC&P are intended to provide reasonable assurance the Company will disclose required information, in accordance with regulatory reporting requirements, within the time periods specified. As at September 30, 2009, the certifying officers have evaluated the design and effectiveness of the Company's DC&P. Based on their evaluation, they have concluded DC&P for Xtreme Coil are designed and operating effectively to provide reasonable assurance that material information relating to the Company, including its consolidated subsidiaries, is made known to them by others within those entities in a timely manner.

ICFR are intended to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of the consolidated financial statements for external purposes in accordance with Canadian GAAP. As at September 30, 2009, the certifying officers have evaluated the design and effectiveness of the Company's ICFR. Based on their evaluation, they have concluded ICFR for Xtreme Coil are effective, but there are control deficiencies discussed below.

Xtreme Coil had a limited number of staff distributed among several geographically-dispersed locations. This has created situations where it was not feasible to achieve complete segregation of duties. Also, due to the limited number of staff in different locations, Xtreme Coil has not had a sufficient number of finance personnel with all of the technical accounting knowledge to address all non-routine accounting transactions that may arise, particularly where expertise is required in specific country regulations, including taxation.

During 2009, management has worked to mitigate the risk resulting from these deficiencies by emphasizing the oversight and diligence of the certifying officers. The Company has hired qualified financial reporting and accounting personnel, and engaged the services of qualified taxation consultants to assist with certain complex and non-routine accounting and tax issues that may arise. In addition, Xtreme Coil has centralized the corporate accounting function in the Houston, Texas office.

Furthermore, during 2009 3Q United States-based general accounting activities were moved from Casper, Wyoming to the Company's Houston, Texas headquarters in an effort to reduce costs and enhance coordination and efficiency.

Non-GAAP Measures

Xtreme Coil uses both GAAP and non-GAAP measures to assess performance and provides non-GAAP measures as supplemental information to investors. 'Operating days', 'utilization', 'gross margin', 'EBITDA' and 'net debt' do not have standardized meanings prescribed by GAAP. Xtreme Coil's method of calculating operating days, rig utilization, gross margin, EBITDA and net debt may differ from methods used by other companies and may not be comparable to measures used by others.

Operating Days

Operating days represent the total of all drilling, moving, standby and other revenue days for each drilling rig in the fleet during the period. Management uses operating days to measure rig utilization which quantifies the revenue-generating activity of the fleet of drilling rigs.

Rig Utilization

Xtreme Coil calculates rig utilization as total operating days of each rig divided by total days in service for each rig.

Gross Margin

Gross margin represents the revenue minus operating expenses. Management believes gross margin is a useful supplemental measure of the financial performance of Xtreme Coil's principal business activities before considering how activities are financed or taxed, as well as other expenses not closely associated with activity levels. The following is a reconciliation of gross margin to net income as calculated in accordance with GAAP.

EBITDA

EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, foreign exchange gains or losses and gains or losses on sale of equipment. EBITDA per share is defined as EBITDA divided by the Company's basic number of common shares. Management believes EBITDA and EBITDA per share are useful supplemental measures of the financial performance of Xtreme Coil's principal business activities before considering how activities are financed or taxed, and before the impact of stock-based compensation, foreign exchange rate fluctuations or sales of equipment.

Following is a reconciliation of EBITDA and EBITDA per share to net income and net income per share as calculated in accordance with GAAP.

Net Debt

Net debt is a measurement used by management and the investment community which is composed of the amount of debt minus working capital.

Outlook

The general economic uncertainty of the recession which began in late 2008 continued through 2009 3Q with rig counts remaining well below historical averages in North America. While Xtreme Coil was successful in raising equity during 2009 2Q, credit and equity markets continue to exhibit historically high levels of volatility and access to these markets remains somewhat constrained.

Early in 2009 3Q, Xtreme Coil's wholly-owned subsidiary, Xtreme Coil Drilling Mexico, S.A. de C.V., executed long-term contracts with a global integrated oilfield services customer for two XTC 200DTPlus rigs which commenced operations in Mexico late in 2009 3Q. Subsequent to those contracts, we entered into eight new long-term day rate contracts for COTD™ drilling rigs with the same customer. These long-term contracts cover a term of 18 months of 100 percent utilization at day rates substantially similar to expiring contracts and include options for three six-month extension periods.

Xtreme Coil now has all ten rigs in Mexico contracted into 2011. Under these contracts, the ten drilling rigs in Mexico will continue to operate in the Chicontepec oil development project near Poza Rica in the state of Veracruz.

Xtreme Coil has thirteen of its sixteen rigs operating under long-term contracts in Mexico and the United States. We expect this will improve 2009 4Q operating days compared to 2009 3Q. We did not win any contracts on the spot drilling market in 2009 3Q. The increase in rig utilization and operating days in 2009 3Q compared to 2009 2Q related to the commencement of operations under long-term contracts for two rigs in late 2009 2Q and an additional two rigs in late 2009 3Q. We anticipate that this increase in rig utilization should contribute favourably to cash flow from operating activities during the remainder of 2009.

We continue to pursue and evaluate opportunities for drilling projects inside and outside North America. Additionally, we believe there are opportunities in the Middle East, North Africa, Australia and Asia. Generally, these regions have relatively stable drilling demand compared to the United States and Canada where drilling markets have only recently showed early signs of increased rig counts.

Xtreme Coil believes the drilling market in Mexico will remain stable during the remainder of 2009. Although certain media coverage several weeks ago suggested uncertainties with regard to development in the Chicontepec project, Xtreme Coil continues to operate at full utilization in that region. We understand the operator is preparing 2010 budgets and operational plans for 2010. We are prepared to pursue any additional tenders made available to companies who are potential customers for Xtreme Coil rigs. Management believes Xtreme Coil offers the newest drilling rigs and differentiating technology which may position us to respond to any potential changes in development plans.

Throughout 2009 3Q and in early 2009 4Q, Xtreme Coil customized an existing XTC 200 series drilling rig to prepare it for potential re-entry work in the Middle East. We recently invited potential customers and service providers to tour the rig on-site in south Texas and technical feedback was positive.

For the remainder of 2009, Xtreme Coil will continue to advance strategic opportunities for contracts within and outside of North America. In response to interest generated from discussions initiated throughout 2009 in several international drilling regions we are discussing a range of projects which could utilize the advanced capabilities of our COTD™ drilling rigs.
