FORT WORTH, Texas, Sept. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Basic Energy Services, Inc. (NYSE: BAS) ("Basic") today reported selected operating data for the month of August 2013.  Basic's well servicing rig count remained unchanged at 425. Well servicing rig hours for the month were 79,200 producing a rig utilization rate of 77%, compared to 73% and 75% July 2013 and August 2012, respectively.

During the month, Basic's fluid service truck count remained unchanged at 970.  Fluid service truck hours for the month were 200,300 compared to 189,000 and 191,800 in July 2013 and August 2012, respectively.

Drilling rig days for the month were 279 producing a rig utilization of 75%, compared to 77% and 91% in July 2013 and August 2012, respectively.

Ken Huseman, Basic's President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "August activity rose sequentially  in most service lines across our operating areas, mainly due to the absence of the holiday impact compared to July. Well servicing utilization of 77% in August of this year compares favorably to the 75% generated  last year in August as we have taken advantage of opportunities to increase our rig count in the oilier portions of our footprint.  Fluid service truck hour activity in August bounced back to 6.7 hours per truck per calendar day compared to 6.3 hours per truck per calendar day in July.  Completion and remedial services activity in August remained fairly consistent with recent months.

"Pricing overall remains relatively stable with pockets of strength and weakness depending on the level of competition.  Our revenue outlook for the remainder of the year is unchanged from July."
