Weir Oil & Gas Announces Its First Weir Pressure Control "Super" Service Center Opening

Super Centers Offer Multiple Product Lines and Combined Services to Better Meet Customers' Pressure Control Needs

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - May 7, 2013) - Weir Oil & Gas announced today the opening of their first Weir Super Service Center for pressure control. Based in Odessa, Texas, the Center will offer comprehensive service and support to the Seaboard and Mathena product lines in the Permian Basin.

The Super Center concept provides total support solutions, under one roof, for Weir's entire pressure control product range. The facility is located to ensure close proximity to customers, ensuring downtime is minimized. This supports the philosophy and standard for the pressure pumping service center model which offers repair services with new SPM, Mesa and Novatech product sales.

Steve Noon, Divisional Managing Director, Weir Oil & Gas, said, "The opening of this Super Center is the latest example of service innovation from Weir. These Centers will provide end-to-end pressure control solutions for customers, where they need them the most -- in the field -- so that they can drill more efficiently, saving time and valuable resource."

The Odessa Weir Oil & Gas Super Center will focus on Seaboard wellhead equipment, frac stacks, Zip-Packsm manifold, and frac flowback services and Mathena eco tanks, separators, drive overs, hydraulic chokes and choke manifolds. Unique to the Weir Oil & Gas Super Center are local area technicians who are highly skilled in pressure control applications and familiar with the Permian Basin customer base.
