Danos acquires Renegade Backhoe Service

Danos Oilfield Services has announced its acquisition of Renegade Backhoe Services in Levelland.

A press release from the company on Tuesday said the company will take over Renegade Backhoe Service’s fleet of backhoes, heavy-haul trailers, dump trucks and associated construction service equipment.

Matt Gray, owner of Renegade Wireline, said the wireline service will not be affected by Danos’ acquisition of the backhoe service.

“We’re still in the wireline business,” Gray said. “I figured there would be more opportunity for the backhoe operators at Danos.”

Steve Villanueva, representative for Renegade Wireline Service, said the backhoe service is a completely different company than the wireline service.

“The Renegade Backhoe Service is a completely different company with separate owners,” Villanueva said. “Renegade Wireline is still Renegade Wireline and nothing will change there.”

He said the companies share one owner, but the wireline service, its customers and employees will not be affected by the acquisition by Danos.

“We shared one owner but nothing changes with us [Renegade Wireline], we did not change one bit,” Villanueva said.

Villanueva himself said he oversaw the backhoe service but is now with the wireline “100 percent.”

Danos will also relocate its Lubbock office to a larger facility in Levelland with shop space and a “lay-down” yard for equipment and materials. Gray said the company will use the former Parkinson’s building as its new office space.

The press release from Danos says the new location is closer to Danos’ norther Permian field operations, offers more office space for employees and provides storage space for backhoes and other equipment.

“In addition to our well-established production and roustabout lines of services, Danos can now offer support for construction operations to customers in Western Texas and Eastern New Mexcio,” said Jeremy Adkins, general manager of U.S. land operations for Danos. “We are committed to investing and growing our Permian operations to better serve existing and prospective clients.”

The company’s Midland office works in tandem with the Levelland location to offer Permian customers an integrated services offering, including project management, automation, production workforce and facility construction.

The recent acquisition bolsters these service offerings with site-preparation, pad construction, dirt work, utility installation and hauling services.
