SECURE Energy Services Acquires 100% Ownership of Joint Venture Assets

CALGARY, July 12, 2016 /CNW/ - Secure Energy Services Inc. ("Secure" or the "Corporation") (TSX – SES) is pleased to announce today that it has completed the acquisition of the 50% interest in all of the Joint Venture assets of the La Glace and Judy Creek facilities (collectively, the "Facilities") previously held by the other joint venture participants, increasing Secure's interest in the related Facilities to 100% (the "Acquisition").
