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."
