OKLAHOMA CITY, Jan. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Compressco Partners, L.P. (Compressco Partners or the Partnership) (NASDAQ: GSJK) today announced its acquisition of Compression assets for "gas lift" markets as part of its defined strategic growth objectives.
Ronald J. Foster, President of Compressco Partners, commented, "During the fourth quarter of 2013, we acquired eighteen packages that feature natural gas driven, three-stage compressors that are available for deployment under service contracts into the gas lift market. Gas lift technology involves the use of compression equipment to inject natural gas downhole in order to increase oil and liquids production primarily in horizontal wells. These compressor packages, which we call the SuperJack™, are focused on drilling projects in the liquids rich resource plays such as the Granite Wash, Eagle Ford, and Woodbine regions where Compressco has strong service coverage already in place. The addition of the SuperJack™ to our existing compression equipment fleet is part of our organic growth into this gas lift market space. We believe the strategy of entering this market creates tremendous synergy with our existing GasJack ® and V-Jack™ production enhancement technologies and will provide a broad footprint for growth."
