Basic Energy Services reported selected operating data for May. Basic's well servicing rig count remained unchanged at 421. Well servicing rig hours for the month were 71,300 producing a rig utilization rate of 70% vs.70% and 68% in April 2014 and May 2013, respectively. During the month, Basic's fluid service truck count increased by three to 1,017. Fluid service truck hours for the month were 213,400 vs. 212,200 and 194,300 in April 2014 and May 2013, respectively. Drilling rig days for the month were 332 producing a rig utilization of 89%, vs. 81% and 78% in April 2014 and May 2013, respectively. Basic CEO Roe Patterson stated, "Our contract drilling fleet experienced higher utilization for the month as we saw an increase in activity for our 1,000 horsepower rigs in the vertical Wolfberry play in the Permian Basin. Activity levels improved in our completion and remedial services segment, particularly for stimulation services, and our calendar for hydraulic fracturing services is relatively full through the remainder of this year. We have been able to pass through rate increases for higher product costs in our stimulation services line of business. In selected operating areas where activity is at higher levels, we have been able to implement rate increases in the 3% to 5% range that meet or exceed the recoupment of higher product costs."
