CALGARY, June 24, 2013 /CNW/ - (TSX: FRC) Canyon Services Group Inc. ("Canyon") provides the following
update on the flood situation in Southern Alberta.
It is expected that the Calgary head office will reopen Wednesday, June
26. No ongoing delays are expected in the head office as it does not
appear that there was any damage to the building. Canyon did not
experience any systems interruptions as its main servers are located
offsite in an area of Calgary that experienced no flooding or power
disruptions. Until the office re-opens later this week, the Calgary
based staff continue to operate via offsite and home computer system
access. Client frac satellite services are working via remote computer
Other than the head office, all field operating bases are operating as
per usual, and have not been adversely impacted. Field operations are
continuing although delays are expected as our clients in the Calgary
downtown area have not had office access and likely will not become
operational until after the Canada Day weekend. In the month of June,
most of the significant field delays being experienced throughout the
basin are due to typical seasonal rain. Any work postponed from Q2
will be completed in the remainder of this year, likely in Q3.
Fortunately, only six Canyon staff were evacuated from their homes due
to flooding. All have found accommodations with family and friends.
Canyon continues to support the community in its restoration efforts and
has dispatched people and equipment to aid in the rebuilding process.
Canyon's common shares trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the
symbol "FRC". Canyon provides high-quality fracturing and related
stimulation services to the oil and gas industry in the Western
Canadian Sedimentary Basin.
