14 | August 2018 | HYDRAULIC FRACTURING: KEY PLAYERS The LateralScience method leverages commonly available drilling measurements to help guide the placement of perforation clusters, leading to uniform fracture treatment and increased production within each fracture stage, according to the company. The company's recently introduced GameChanger perforating system used in its wireline operations was designed with no ports and has no wires running from gun to gun. This configuration was designed to improve the reliability and efficiency of its services by significantly reducing misruns caused by problems within the perforating gun, the company said. In November 2017 C&J completed its acquisition of O-Tex Holdings Inc. and its operating subsidiaries, including O-Tex Pumping LLC, for approximately $132.5 million, according to a press release. "O-Tex is the fourth largest provider of oilfield cementing services in the U.S. based on internal data and indus- try sources," the release stated. "O-Tex specializes in both primary and secondary downhole specialty cementing services in most major U.S. shale plays with eight field offices, eight lab facilities and one of the youngest fleets in the industry." Also in the fourth quarter of last year, C&J divested its Canadian rig services business to CWC Energy Services Corp., according to a November 2017 press release. The transaction included the company's Cana- dian fleet of 75 workover rigs, 13 swabbing rigs and the real estate associated with six operating facilities throughout Western Canada.
