E M I SUMMIT ENERGY SERVICES THE WILLISTON BASIN/BAKKEN SHALE SUMMER 2012 • Williston, N.D. “The servant-oriented approach has resonated with our customers, and it keeps the phone ringing for us.”” // WILL REEDY, COO Summit prides itself on being a one-stop shop that can mobilize quickly.. A Champion for Service Summit Energy Services’ emphasis on relationship building has been successful in the North Dakota market. [ BY JAMIE MORGAN ] state, and a few towns in particular. Williston, N.D., though smaller than Fargo, N.D., is now the No. 1 sales tax generator in the state. The Williston-based Summit Energy Services is a contractor for aboveground oil field-related services, and provides: • Roustabout and site maintenance • Road and well site – pad construction • Storm water and erosion management • Pipeline and flow line construction • Reclamation services • Scoria and water hauling READY TO SERVE COO Will Reedy explains that the rush to build results from the stipulation that once a piece of land is leased for oil production, a well must be drilled within three years. Oil producers have to mobilize quickly, which means the companies that support them have to be just as fast. Those that can keep up reap the rewards. “This is a huge, multibillion-dollar business, and there are a lot of aspects to it and Summit is just focused on a small piece in the construction of surface facilities,” Reedy says. “Still, we grew from $4 million in sales in 2010 to $35 million Anyone familiar with the Williston Basin, a shale formation stretching from eastern Montana into the western Dakotas and up to Saskatchewan, wouldn’t be surprised that North Dakota has just PROFILE passed California to become the thirdlargest oil-producing state in the country. In January, the state’s oil output reached 546,050 barrels per day, a 59 percent increase from the previous year. As production has grown, so has the Summit Energy Services. | 2011 revenues: $35 million | Headquarters: Williston, N.D. Employees: 160 | Specialty: Above-ground oilfield services 106
