DRAYTON VALLEY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Sept. 10, 2013) - ATK Oilfield Transportation Inc. ("ATK" or the "Company"), a leading provider of rig moving and oilfield transportation services, today announced that it has closed a term debt facility of CDN$25 million with ATB Financial.

ATK will initially use this term debt financing to consolidate existing debt. The majority of the term debt financing will be used to purchase additional new equipment to further expand ATK's operations in Western Canada, including ATK's new locations in Grande Prairie, Alberta and Fort Nelson, British Columbia.

"In partnership with ATB we have been able to substantially strengthen our balance sheet and reduce our cost of capital," said Artie Kos, Chairman and CEO of ATK. "We see a strong market for ATK in Canada and will continue to grow our presence in the prolific W5 and W6 region. At the same time, we have identified potential opportunities for ATK in some of the emerging resource plays in the United States."
