About Canadian Energy Services & Technology Corp.
CESTC is a leading provider of technically advanced consumable chemical solutions throughout the life-cycle of the oilfield. This includes solutions at the drill-bit, at the point of completion and stimulation, at the wellhead and pump-jack, and finally through to the pipeline and midstream market. CESTC's business model requires limited re-investment capital to grow. As a result, CESTC has been able to capitalize on the growing market demand for drilling fluids and production and specialty chemicals in North America while generating free cash flow. CESTC returns much of this free cash flow back to shareholders through its monthly dividend.
