DENVER, April 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ENSERVCO Corporation (NYSE American:ENSV), a diversified national provider of specialized well-site services to the domestic onshore conventional and unconventional oil and gas industries, today announced that Austin Peitz, co-founder and Senior Vice President of Field Operations, left the Company effective April 27, 2018, following a 20-year career in which he helped build ENSERVCO into a national, multi-service operator.

“As a co-founder who has been here from the beginning, it was a difficult decision for me to leave following 20 years of heading operations and working with some of the finest people and operators in our industry,” said Peitz.  “Over the past few years, I took great pride in watching my colleagues come together to not only weather several industry downturns but to emerge as a stronger and more substantial organization at each turn.  We are off to a great start in 2018 following a year in which activity levels picked up across all our basins and revenue in our core service areas grew by double digits with improving profitability.  We have also added some solid talent in the areas of operations, sales and marketing.  Accordingly, I believe now is the right time for me for me to step away and seek out new challenges.  I will continue to be a shareholder of ENSERVCO and am confident that the team we have assembled is well suited to take this company to the next level of growth and profitability.”

Ian Dickinson, CEO, added, “No one has been more important to the growth and success of ENSERVCO over the years than Austin Peitz.  Through his tireless efforts and commitment to our customers, employees and shareholders, he has played a major role in establishing a platform for long-term success.  Under his guidance, ENSERVCO grew from a single-location, single-service provider, to a public company with a diversified suite of high value services, a national footprint, a world class customer base and an outstanding reputation in the oilfield. The operations team Austin has built is second to none – the backbone of this company and the foundation for future growth.  They are eager to continue to execute in the same tradition of excellence and culture of growth that Austin has established over the years.  On behalf of our employees and the Board of Directors, I want to thank Austin for all he has accomplished over his many years of dedicated service. He will be greatly missed, and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”

Dickinson noted that, with Peitz’s departure, ENSERVCO has begun a search for a Chief Operating Officer and expects to fill the position soon.

Through its various operating subsidiaries, ENSERVCO provides a wide range of oilfield services, including hot oiling, acidizing, frac water heating, water transfer, and water hauling.  The Company has a broad geographic footprint covering seven major domestic oil and gas basins and serves customers in Colorado, Kansas, Montana, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Texas, Wyoming and West Virginia. Additional information is available at
