Who Are We?

Performance Energy Services Inc. is a private oilfield service company based in Calgary, Alberta. Performance was started in 2012 with the intent of servicing a needed hole in the industry by specializing in remedial cementing (abandonment of old oil and gas wells). In order to facilitate the complete new design and new build of specialized equipment Performance purchased and ran 10 Nitrogen pumpers for the Alberta market. Once the original 4 Cementers were up and running Performance dispersed the N2 assets down into the US. In 2014 Performance Energy purchased Rearden Well Servicing out of Weyburn, Saskatchewan, then Casa Well Servicing in 2015. The purchase of these two companies is now known as Performance Production Services which is a division of Performance Energy Services. This division includes 9 service rigs that support Saskatchewan and Alberta well-servicing needs.

Scott Darling: 35+ years in the Abandonment and Well-servicing industry
Dwayne Cooper: 30+ years in the Energy Pumping Industry
Greg Fisher: 25+ years in the Energy Bean Counting industry
