Layne Energy Services was formed to address the water demands of the energy industry and provides solutions to manage the water cycle in the oil & gas industry (conventional and unconventional), including hydrogeological investigation and sourcing; transfer; storage; treatment; and well testing. The transfer business transmits water from point-to-point using a variety of piping, containment, and management techniques that eliminate the need for trucking.
 
Layne is currently providing these services for its clients operating in the US’s Permian Basin.
 
Rene Robichaud, president and CEO of Layne Christensen, said: “The commencement of our water transfer operations is an important milestone for our growing Energy Services Division, and we expect to add new water management services during calendar 2013. We are continuing to make the investments necessary as we plan to achieve a US$20 million revenue run rate at Layne Energy Services by year-end.”
