Rotary Drilling Tools Acquires Drill String Services Inc. and Expands Services

HOUSTON (September 12, 2013) - Rotary Drilling Tools USA, LLC (RDT) acquired the machine shop assets and operations of Drill String Services, Inc. (DSSI) through its field service repair facility division, Tubular Repair, LLC, and has announced that with this merger, it will build two new facilities by the end of 2013. 

RDT acquired DSSI, a certified full-service pipe inspection company, in July. DSSI has served the oil and gas industry for more than 20 years and specializes in nondestructive testing (NDT) of drill pipe and drilling components and offers machine shop services including bottom hole assembly (BHA) manufacturing and rotary shoulder connection repair using computerized numerical control (CNC) lathe technology.
Through the purchase, DSSI’s field service repair facilities in Amelia, LA, Victoria, TX and Williamsport, PA will complement RDT’s current Tubular Repair LLC facilities in Rifle, CO and Evanston, WY. Furthermore, the acquisition will allow RDT to add new Tubular Repair, LLC facilities in Midland, TX and Williston, ND by the end of this year. 
OFS Energy Fund purchased the majority of RDT from SERVAgroup in Q4 of 2012 with the intent to grow the business.
