Electronic technicians and mechanics are an integral part of the crew on every job site, to quickly handle potential problems and maintain reliability.
  • Strategic Proppant Sources – A long-term supply agreement with Fairmount Minerals helps ensure reliable proppant resources.


The early development of the Barnett Shale natural gas play in Texas led to the founding in 2002 of the company now known as FTS International (FTSI). With the development of the Barnett Shale, the founders saw a growing need for well stimulation services. In true entrepreneurial fashion, they started the business from the ground up, used innovative technologies and vertical integration to create a thriving enterprise, then sold their shares in the company in 2011 to a consortium of investors. The company continues to grow and innovate – in the spirit of its founders.
