LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–With the price of oil sinking to levels not seen in years, industry analysts are predicting a coming wave of mergers and asset sales in the oilfield services sector, a scenario that could help First Titan Corp’s. (OTCQB:FTTN) plans to enter the market.
“What’s going to happen is these mergers and sales are going to greatly disrupt service company’s relationships with exploration and production companies,” said FTTN CEO Sydney Jim. “This offers a strategic opening in the market we can exploit. Oil companies will need new service vendors to replace those that go under or are taken over in this low-price environment. We can step in and use this economic situation to our advantage to fill in these growing service gaps, building relationships and revenue.”
Industry watchers predict the service companies that will survive the current difficulties are those with low debt. This low debt will give them the flexibility to not only weather the tough times ahead but to buy out rivals and grab additional market share.
“We’ve been very careful with debt,” said Mr. Jim. “So we have the needed flexibility to adapt and prosper while others are struggling.”
FTTN continues due diligence on oilfield service equipment, looking at auctions and asset sales for suitable acquisition opportunities.
The Company is building a competitive portfolio of oil and gas properties alongside companies such as Lucas Energy, Inc. (LEI), Earthstone Energy, Inc. (ESTE), Fieldpoint Petroleum Corp. (FPP) and Evolution Petroleum Corp. (EPM).
