CEO Gary Kolstad commented, “We were pleased with the growth rates of both our industrial and environmental business sectors as a result of our long term growth strategy to diversify our revenue streams.  I am confident we have the right strategy, technology and assets to execute our transformation plan.  Although our oilfield sector revenue was down year-on-year, we are very pleased to see our oilfield technology revenue grow in what remains a tough environment.  In addition, we were able to improve our cash position from the second quarter of 2018.

“A decline in oil and gas completion activity, along with increases in sand supplies from new regional sand mines, impacted our oilfield business during the third quarter.  Adjusting to this market decline, we incurred approximately $400 thousand of severance during the third quarter of 2018.

Oilfield sector revenue declined 3% year-on-year, and comprised approximately 75% of consolidated revenue.

“Oilfield technology ceramic revenue increased 20% year-on-year.  The year-on-year increase was driven by strong sales of KRYPTOSPHERE® HD.  Our technology product portfolio continues to demonstrate its high value through increased usage in oil and gas wells.  

“STRATAGEN® consulting revenue increased 31% year-on-year.   Trust in our expert field consultants to manage fracture completions, continues to drive new client growth.
