Compressco Partners, L.P. Announces 2012 Financial Guidance

OKLAHOMA CITY, Jan. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Compressco Partners, L.P. (Compressco Partners or the Partnership) (NASDAQ: GSJK) today announced 2012 financial guidance of $93 to $103 million in revenues and $20 to $24 million in pretax profit.

Ronald J. Foster, President of Compressco Partners, remarked, "Our estimated mid-range 2012 guidance of $98 million in revenues and $22 million in pretax profit represents an improvement over anticipated 2011 results, and is driven by a combination of several factors. First, we expect to benefit from the significant investment made in Latin America during 2011 associated with increased demand for production enhancement services. Second, our continued overall focus on cost reduction and supply chain strategies should result in margin improvements for the Partnership. And finally, a continued focus on growing our market position, especially in the vapor recovery and liquid-driven U.S. shale basins, and a continued emphasis on international growth should favorably impact Compressco Partners' 2012 results despite the current low natural gas price environment.

"We anticipate capital expenditures of approximately $15 million and depreciation expense of approximately $13 million during 2012. In addition to our focus on organic growth, we continue to look at M&A opportunities for production enhancement businesses, and are prepared to pursue attractive acquisitions, as they present themselves.

"Based on this estimated earnings forecast, we remain confident that we can achieve minimum quarterly distributions of at least $0.3875 in 2012."

Compressco Partners is a provider of wellhead compression-based production enhancement services to a broad base of natural gas and oil exploration and production companies operating throughout most of the onshore producing regions of the United States. Compressco Partners has significant operations in Canada and Mexico and a growing presence in certain countries in South America, Eastern Europe and the Asia-Pacific region. Compressco Partners is managed by Compressco Partners GP Inc., which is an indirect, wholly owned subsidiary of TETRA Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TTI).
