Assets of bankrupt drilling supplier to go up for auction

By order of the court appointed receiver, Tiger Liquidity Services Energy Partners will conduct an online auction on March 22 for assets formerly owned by Enseco Services Energy Corp., a Calgary, Canada-headquartered well-production testing company.

Enseco Services Energy Corp. filed for Chapter 15 bankruptcy on Oct. 23, 2015, in the Colorado Bankruptcy Court (Case No. 1:15-bk-21821).

The auction is the first project for the recently formed partnership between New York-based Tiger Capital Group and Washington, DC-based Liquidity Services (NASDAQ: LQDT). The partnership was created to help insolvency and turnaround professionals ramp up their services to the turbulent oil and gas market, and to directly assist companies seeking to sell surplus assets.

The sale will include horizontal drilling and measurement-while-drilling (MWD) equipment, as well as laboratory equipment, rolling stock, parts, and portable offices from Enseco’s Casper, Wyoming, and Minot, North.Dakota, locations.

Online bidding will begin March 16 at, Liquidity Services’ marketplace for idle and used energy equipment in the oil and gas industry. Information is also available at

“Well-production test and flowback test companies, MWD and directional-drilling companies, as well as energy services companies will be interested in the assets up for bid,” said Jeff Tanenbaum, president of Tiger Group’s Remarketing Services Division.

“This auction offers an opportunity for companies to acquire and consolidate a range of equipment and components that are required to service operators in the field, so they’ll be fully prepared when the oil market returns to robust activity,” added Daniel Beck, vice president of global sales for Liquidity Services. “All assets have been organized for easy inspection and evaluation.”

Horizontal drilling and MWD drilling assets up for bid include sand separators, junk catchers, pipe skids, MWD positive pulse kits and surface systems, manifolds, lab equipment, repair and maintenance equipment.

Rolling stock includes utility trailers as new as 2013, along with car-haul trailers, cargo trailers, enclosed trailers, gooseneck trailers, furnished portable office trailers, and other equipment.
