Christopher Voie

And just to then want NESR. touch on

now So in XXXX? is fleets? I number of there have two there any the upside to you think

Robert Drummond

appreciate I you So question. asking the

lot bar our the Middle a there. better, for creating we've performance Our partnership get with in NESR and a lot. to is customers the raised and East value of better management continues Operational

for customer partner, region that teamwork we've ROI commercial which fracking parties, unique. delivered the of two dollars between business because makes us, a the -- opportunities do of the for are I able service in a the clearly to and they're companies, bit three got The attractive is development on very ROI NESR it being increased and dependent good potential we think per at that fleet. it great is E&Ps much stages and regional in represents the amount for excellent by very the spent being region. the

any XXXX some expectations a view have maintain direct on but laser there that we of the do will horizon. opportunities So in be near-term hope not and
