Regarding Riata’s investment, Brad Goebel, CEO of Extract, said, “Having worked with and enjoyed considerable success with Riata’s principals in our previous artificial lift platform, our team is excited to have Riata as an investment partner. Their capital, experience and strategic support will further equip us to serve our customers while facilitating the accelerated growth of our capabilities, our footprint and the Extract brand.”
Barron Fletcher, Managing Partner of Riata, said, “We are excited to re-enter a services category that we know so well and partner with Brad and his exceptional team of operators. As a critical, production-related service category, the artificial lift market continues to be driven by strong secular demand from energy producers to help them meet their production needs. With deep industry experience and customer relationships, best-in-class ESP and H-Pump systems and services offerings, and exceptional leadership, Extract is well positioned to become a formidable platform in the $5.5 billion North American artificial lift services market.”
