/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES/
CALGARY, June 19 /CNW/ - Western Energy Services Corp. ("Western" or the
"Company") is pleased to report that it has added additional acid pumping
capacity and introduced nitrogen pumping services to be provided by StimSol
Canada Inc., its wholly owned Canadian operating subsidiary.
StimSol's new pumper is an acid pumper that can also perform duties as a
pressure truck. With its integrated fiberglass tank, the unit is able to haul
product to location and then deliver it down hole - a novel configuration in
today's services market. This capability allows the Company to offer its
customers an economic, single unit well service package.
StimSol's new nitrogen equipment uses a flameless technology and body
load configuration. With the addition of nitrogen pumping to its Canadian
service line, Western can now offer its customers a complete package of well
stimulation services, without relying upon support from third parties or from
it US operations.
The purchase of these units was in large part funded with the proceeds
from the sale of the Company's well testing equipment which was announced on
May 17, 2007.
