Basin Energy Group Completes Merger With Appalachian Production Services Inc.

Basin Energy Group (Basin) has completed its merger with Appalachian Production Services Inc. (APS). Headquartered in Abingdon, Virginia, USA, APS is a production and midstream services firm specializing in well tending, production enhancement, compressor station operations, and roustabout services in Virginia, Kentucky, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, Tennessee, and Ohio. Its customers include natural gas and oil producers as well as midstream operators in the Appalachian region.

APS joins current Basin operating companies, ProActive Services and Starett Energy Services, to provide complementary production and midstream services for the natural gas and oil industry in the US Appalachian Basin. ProActive Services is a West Virginia based field services company focused on gathering system operations and maintenance, as well as compressor station operations. Starett’s Well Service offers a broad array of general roustabout field services for drilling, completions, production, and midstream operations and maintenance.

Joining the Basin management team is Frank Henderson, the owner and founder of APS. Henderson will remain the President of APS and also assume the role of Senior Vice President of Basin and sit on its board of directors.

Formed in 2014, Basin is devoted to servicing natural gas and oil producers by assisting in the production and transportation of natural gas and associated liquids with a focus on operations in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. The company came together with the backing of Turning Basin Capital, a private equity firm based in Richmond, Virginia. The business was founded as a holding company focused on finding and growing a broad portfolio of services and solutions companies, primarily in the midstream segment of the rapidly expanding shale gas market in the Marcellus and Utica basins.
