Drilling rig days for June totaled 317, producing a rig utilization of 88 percent, compared to 89 percent and 79 percent in May 2014 and June 2013, respectively.

"Activity in June for our major business lines was consistent with the momentum that we saw throughout the second quarter of this year,” said president and CEO Roe Patterson in a news release.

“We did experience a slight impact from rainy conditions throughout our Texas and Oklahoma footprint, which had some effect on all our business lines in those markets,” Patterson said.

Basic Energy Services, which provides oil and gas well-site services, employs more than 5,600 workers in Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arkansas, Kansas and the Rocky Mountain and Appalachian regions. More information is available at www.basicenergyservices.com.
