Seal-Tite International Announces Brinker Acquisition

Seal-Tite Brings New Life to Platelet Barrier Technologies for Oilfield Leak Remediation

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - Apr 18, 2013) - Seal-Tite® International, a US-based oil and gas technology company, has announced the further expansion of its proven Engineered Sealing Solutionssm line with the asset structured acquisition of UK-based Brinker Technology.

The acquisition strengthens Seal-Tite's standing as the leading provider of unique solutions for maintaining well integrity without the need for a rig workover, significantly reducing the time and costs associated with locating and fixing leaks and getting wells back on line.

Seal-Tite recognizes that as energy assets around the world mature, the need for the industry to focus on finding technological advances in well integrity as a solution to meet the ever-increasing demand for hydrocarbons has become paramount.

The company's mission is to be at the forefront of in-situ sealing technologies for the petrochemical industry by providing best-in-class sealing solutions. Founder and managing director of Seal-Tite International Barry Ellis notes, "At Seal-Tite we are committed to providing our customers with a range of Engineered Sealing Solutions designed to solve complex problems in specific environments including high pressures of up to 22,000 psi and high temperatures up to 650 F. The addition of Platelet Barrier Technology™, as well as other Brinker assets, will underpin our commitment to redefine current practices and assist operators in meeting the growing demand and pressure for producing hydrocarbons."

The substantial timesavings provided with Seal-Tite's products become clear when compared to standard methods of repairing (casing and tubing) leaks, which require some form of intensive intervention as well as a workover rig. This reduction in downtime adds significant value to the operator. Additionally, the low equipment footprint means the normal workflow is not disrupted.

Companies and individuals interested in learning more about all of Seal-Tite's products are invited to stop by booth 4046 at the 2013 Offshore Technology Conference to be held in Houston, May 6-9.

Seal-Tite® International provides leak repair services to the oil and gas industry. Seal-Tite International's repair technology can be deployed in various applications, ranging from subsea connectors to wellhead leaks and including high pressure. Headquartered in Louisiana, USA, Seal-Tite International has offices in every major oilfield location throughout the world, offering an unparalleled footprint.
